Big Game Treestands The Pursuit Tripod Stand
I purchased 1 to set up for a bow stand. I hunt in Mesquite trees and did not want a 16' stand so I thought at 13', it would be perfect.
When I opened the box, 1st thing I noticed it looked like it had been dropped from the back of a truck. Ends of arm rests and gun rail were smashed. To far to go back to exchange, so I repaired as best I could.
It went together easy enough. I placed it where I wanted it, Staked it down, and climbed up to sit down.
The stand is fairly stable, but the seat post has way to much play for my liking. Made me very nervous sitting there.
If you weigh more than 200 lbs, pass on this stand and buy a real tripod.

pretty good stand
I have used this stand now for 3 or 4 years. It is easily portable and that is the reason that I purchased it. I will say 2 things about it that I don't like. #1 the shooting rail is pretty much useless. unless you are shooting down hill on a pretty steep line, it is useless. I have since clamped an apparatus on the rail to use when necessary. Otherwise you will be shooting free hand. Second, it does have a little wiggle in the way the seat attaches. When you move it will make you feel like you are about to flip out of the stand. But it only moves slightly and you eventually get used to it.
I would highly recommend this stand for something to set up with quickly or for a short time. If you are wanting a stand to set up and use continuously over a long period of time, I would have to suggest a more quality and stable tripod.

Nice Portable Tripod
I bought (2) of these tripods because I wanted some tripod stands that are easily portable. This stand is nearly perfect. It is pretty easy to assemble, it is fairly comfortable and best of all, you can move this stand alone (weighs 66 lbs ). Here is an example: I shot 2 does from this stand one afternoon. I loaded the 2 does + the tripod in the back of my pickup and set the tripod in a new location headed back to the camp (all by myself) and within minutes.
If you are looking for a reliable/portable tripod, this is a very good choice!

triump bipod stand
I am going into my 2nd deer season with this stand and I think it is a top contender for portability, ease of setup, and quality. I would make one addition for safety I would add a lock to the swivel seat.
