The Openshot is compact and light weight for easy carry. Has the QuickDraw cable system that makes it a snap to secure to the tree. Seat is mounted to the seat/hand climber. RapidClimb stirrup bars are easy to slip your feet into - no straps to mess with. Extruded aluminum SummitLokt construction locks all joints before welding for extra strength and dependability.
This is a great climbing tree stand. Very easy to use and you can get up a tree very quickly. The platform is a little on the small side but still works very well. It also comes with carrying straps so you can carry it on your back and keep your hands free to carry your bow or gun. I would highly recommend this stand.
