Summit The Crush Series Viper SD Ultra Climbing Treestand
I bought this climber because of the excellent ratings it was receiving and I have not been disappointed. The Viper SD Ultra is very well designed and made, extremely sturdy, roomy and safe feeling to sit and stand in, and incredibly comfortable. It was easy to put together and transport out in the field and I really can't say enough about how comfortable it is. I am very pleased with buying this stand. Definitely worth the price.
Not any major cons but a few things to mention. The padding on the arms is tie-strapped on and tends to slide easily. Padding fabric isn't too loud but a doe standing under my stand heard my arm brush against it so I may take it off or cover it. She didn't spook but she went on alert. The 10 pointer I got 3 days ago never heard or saw me though..

Great climbing stand
I've not used a climber since the old Baker stands many years back. After much reseach and asking friends, I landed on Summit. New land lease means I need to move around so I ordered the crush series.This is a Bass Pro version of the viper but with more options and still made by Summit. I'm 6'3" 215lbs. and the stand is really comfortable. Several said you need the titan or goliath, but with just a few inches in difference and more weight, I think this fits just fine. It's safe, was easy to assemble the few parts which needed assembly and durable. I bow hunt and have pleanty of room to drawl a bow, standing. Its quiet and easy to carry. Should be nice for gun season provided I dont fall asleep in it.

This is an awesome stand. For the last 20+ years I have been hunting from a Tree Lounge which was a very comfortable stand, but after a leg injury don't have the flexibility to turn around in it. I bought this stand after friend recommended it, and have not been disappointed. The light weight lets me carry it through the woods for 1/2 mile hikes to hunting areas. I have stayed in this stand for 6+ hours, moved to another location and back in it for 3+ more, without being uncomfortable. I would recommend the bags that are available from Summit to go with this stand.
