I wasn't looking for this stand, but it was a sale item, so I figured it was worth a shot. Also, the stand I was after wasn't in stock.
All in all I'm very happy with it.
On the plus side it's well constructed, easy to assemble and light enough that it can be positioned by one person; if the feet are firmly anchored first. I've read complaints that the ladder pins are noisy, that bolts would be better? But, that would decrease the ease of setup in the field. I just wrapped them with duct tape.
My only concerns are that the floor grid plate is rather small, so when standing the position of the back foot might be problematical. I occasionally find my right heel resting on the rear edge, near open air. But, the front foot support rail/shooting rail are nice touches. They add to a feeling of overall security.
Also, the seat is very comfortable, but that's because the seat support area is fabric tied to the seat rails. There is no metal seat support. It is softer, but I wonder how the support material will weather if left up year round? And, the seat dimensions I would not suggest for anyone over 6 foot tall or 200lbs. It is far from spacious. But, for my needs it's fine.
Overall, I say this is a good buy, even at the usual price. And, I would recommend it with the minimal reservations I mentioned above. I may even purchase another.

OK, the assembly to the tree stand was very hard. Bolts, washers, nuts, and other miscellaneous parts aren't labeled or separated. It felt like a guessing game to try an assemble this product. However, measuring bolts and separating them yourself will help you out a bit. Once assembled and I had it on a tree I was amazed at the fact that it makes a little noise going up and down the latter part. The seat is very comfortable and you can sit on it for hours..

The stand is a little tough to put up by yourself, but once you get it up it is great. The seat is very comfortable. You can sit it for a long time and not have anything hurting! I will recommend it to my friends.

When I bought this stand I was wanting a stand that I could sit in for hours and still be comfortable, along with durability and quite. I got two of the three. The stand is by far one of the most comfortable stand you could ever by. It's build quality is also excellent and it was fairly easy to put together. But when you are climbing th stand its a little loud there are a few on the ladder and they shake just a little to make some noise. I let one of my friends hunt this stand and they left the shooting rest up which fell the next time I climbed it. If you see this stand on sale, there is no reason why you shouldn't buy it! I am very satisfied with it and will buy more in the future.
