Favorite hang on stands


Recommended Posts

What are your favorite hang on stands that weigh around 14# or less?

I'm looking at the lone wolf assault and alpha 2.  Also the rivers edge light foot. Also XOP Guide gear and a few others.  I want something light but most of all something confirmable enough for all day sits and a stand that will last.

Love the line wolf assault! Stealth strips go on great and really make it a quiet set. I preset mine with a hss life line. But they're super easy to take down and move to where the action is.

Stands that are super comfy are not usually super mobile/usable. Even Alphas can be uncomfortable. Look at Dan Infalt's stand...it is $$$. 

I'd say LW Alpha and the Infalt stand.

I have a few Sportsman Guides hang on ones. They are only like $50 and work great

I have one on the lease that works great and the other one squeaks if you even think of moving in it.

Nothing is cheap any longer. Plus they're not really businessmen, cost be what it is.

That said, people shell out alot more $ to get a fraction of an inch better MOA grouping, or buy the latest bow that will be obsoleted in 6 mos. Buying a super mobile stand that likely provides 10-20 years of service doesn't seem so offputting.

It's certainly not a stand for the masses, but the masses also wouldn't use that stand the way it was built to be used. They're better off with the lower tier stuff. That is the fun part of hunting - you can be as recreational or as serious about it as you want.

i have a couple cheap stands that are okay. i have a lonewolf alpha that is the one I like the best. it's silent and has been up for years. i check it every year prior to the season. this week i'm going to take it down though just because i should. it very well might go right back up in the same tree.

I've used cheap stands my whole life and some have been extremely comfortable. My favorite was the big game boss XL the platform and seat where give and comfortable. To bad they stopped making them years ago.

Last year I bought 3 hang on stands for under $100 each from dicks. Most comfortable stands I ever sat in but after the first sit in each stand the stitching on the webbed seat pooped and had to return all 3 stand.

I think I'm stuck between the millennium 100U and the Alpha 2.

I'm waiting on the M7 right now , i love the tree bracket on the millennium stands and the 8.5 pound weight of the stand sold me.
