Big Game Treestands The Boss XL Fixed Position Treestand
Big Game® Treestands The Boss™ XL
This stand comes un assembled. No problem putting it together. Done in less than 5 minutes. This is not a cling on stand, by that I mean you are not clinging onto a tree while you are in it. The seat is wide, the platform is roomy. I'm 6 ft 225 so space is a good thing. Shorter hunters may find the seat too high for them but for me it's perfect.
The only downside, if it can be called that is the seat cushion. I find it flattens out after a couple of hours in a the stand. That may have more to do with my weight than design as my son found it quite comfortable.
Assembly, set up in tree are all easy. I thought about adding a ratchet style strap to it but it isn't necessary. Thee safety harness is adequate.
You won't be dissapointed.

I love the stand I have several all I suggest is do not spray paint the stand camo before you make sure plat form does not squeak metal on metal because I could not return this one due to my camo paint job, stand came flat black.

Great stand for money
I own many stand types/manufactuers. This stand is my favorite budget stand. Melinnium is my favorite but we continue to purchase these due to the overall value. Im a big guy and this stand is very sturdy and safe.
The only thing I will say is that I recommend you take a ratchet strap with you to secure the stand because the strap that comes with it is a little weak for me. great stand for the money.

very good lock on !
I have about six of these, very big and roomy. Has a square tubing w/ expanding metal seat, once the cushion wears out, you can tote a cushion with you. The sliding cam buckle can be tough to pop loose on a tightly stretched strap as the tree keeps growing. I always put extra ratchet straps on for safety. I will keep on buying this model, haven't found a better one yet to match the features.
