Rated 4 out of 5 by Gash01 Good buy This is the first climber that I've used. Spent a few hours in it to test it out and thought that it was pretty comfortable. I think its a good buy. I could see a large guy having problems using it though. I'm about 71 in and weight about 185 and I fit in it just fine but a taller person might not be so comfortable. October 11, 2010
Rated 3 out of 5 by keithinla smaller than advertised This may not be an issue with you, but the platform for this stand is not really as big as advertised. It shows that it is 30" long, but that is measured from the back part of the stand behind the tree. From the tree to the end it is only 22" long. Might be a none issue for you, but at 6"3" it is for me. My feet stick off the end about 3-4" when just sitting. Other than that I can't really complain too much. I knew it was heavy for the size when I bought it. Got it for under $100, good stand for $$ just small. November 25, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by OPKSHunter Gorilla Greyback This is my first stand and I have never been in a stand. With that said someone I trusted recommended Gorilla. I am $ conscious so this stand fit my budget. After practicing a few times I could be climbing quickly. I'm definately glad I practiced before going to the woods. Probably a little on the heavy side, but does pack well. I find this stand comfortable but the foot platform is slightly small. Love the pockets for storing small items. The only real issue I had was the clip pins that hold the adjusting cable in place came apart with-in first couple uses, but that was quickly rectified by Gorilla. I called them and told them and they quickly asked me how many I needed and shipped them to me free of charge. November 21, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 Best Stand for the Money!!! Having only used Old Man stands and observed others use various Summit stands I don't have a ton of knowledge about stands out there, but I must say, this is a great stand and costs over a $100.00 less than the recommended Summit stands. It works just like an Old Man with one addition. The cables have orange square end guides to aid in finding and adjusting the cables when mounting to the tree unlike the Old Man style which are hard to see in low light and can twist in the tubes.. The side bags are great for keeping your gear out of your pockets. I have my bow release, doe scent, gloves, mask, flashlight, and retrieval rope in there. The stand is rock solid on the tree and has made absolutely no noise once settled in on the tree. In fact, I had 5 deer walk directly under me while I was only 25 feet up the tree on the first hunt with it. The seat is very comfortable. I'm 6'0, 180 lbs, and fit fine in the stand. it may be a little snug for you big boys out there though. This stand also folds down flat unlike the Summits. Just buy it. November 18, 2009

Details:Most tree stands have a "V-shaped back" that has teeth on it, and is attached to the bottom seat portion, and is used for gripping the tree. Does this stand have a "V-back" or a round back with teeth on it?
A:The tree stand as you face the tree has a V-Shape in the front with teeth, but there's a cable that goes around the back of the tree. Hope this helps you .
A:not realy its adequate but combersome to put on in the dark. go ahead purchase a good vest harness you will like it better
Details:Stupid question but does this stand work for archers? I've seen guys talk about some tree stands are good for gun hunters but not achers. Would like to buy this as my 1st climber but only if it's a good one for archery.
A:There's no questions that are stupid and one is not sure, you're wise to ask. As to the tree stand, I had two and Im very pleased with them even though my hunting buddies always want to use one and they are very comfortable and easy going up and down the tree. A person could sent in the tree for along while with no problem. A big yes, I would recommend it; but like anythingelse you need to practice with it going up and down a tree and become comfortable and most of all practice with you saftey harnest. Good hunting.

A:It will work fine for archers. Keep in mind though, depending on your stature, that you may need to stand to have the best shot opportunity at your target. I have taken successful shots sitting and standing out of this stand. Make sure you practice both conditions prior to the season so you're comfortable and know your limitations. Hope this helps.

A:Absolutely!! Almost every climber works for archery, some work better...i.e. summit dagger, openshot, but this one is almost as good. You just want to stay away from stands with a shooting rest that sits above the bar, other than that you will love all the ease of a climber, but PLEASE remember to wear a harness!!
Details:I was putting my stand together and noticed there were 2 screw-in adaptors on the front of the seat section of the stand.
A:Shooting rails and other accessories.
A:The manufacturer's recommendation is 8" - 20" trees.
A:8 in to a 22 in is what they say but I've gotten mine on a little bigger.
A:the groilla stand will attache to very large trees to very small ones and still climb good
A:Not sure exactly what you're asking, but, I've tried 12 in diameter trees reducing only a couple of inches at 25 feet to trees 18 inches in diameter with little to no reduction at 25 feet. The larger you can get it on at the ground with little reduction at height you hunt, the better. generally I stick to the latter with this stand.
A:8-22, please do not buy this i reccomend you use a good aluminum self climber with and actual chair or i highly recommend that you buy a 2 man treestand.
