I've seen some "I'm new, what stand should I get" posts on here in the past where many, if not most, of the folks were recommending a Summit climber. I'm not new to hunting or bowhunting, and I actually owned a Viper years ago but I never tried to bowhunt out of it.
Now, though, I'm trying to be a little more mobile in my approach, I know I love the comfort of a climber in general and after using several brands/models of climbers owned by others, I know there is definitely something about the way a Summit goes up the tree that I appreciate.
So my question is for all of you folks out there using a Summit, specifically a Viper or similar sit & climb. What are your thoughts on the ease of bowhunting out of a Viper? To add a little color...I looked at a new one in the store the other day and it seemed clear that it was not possible to adjust the seat up high enough to be level with the frame, so I'll definitely be sitting down inside of it no matter how much I adjust it. I've hunted out of a convertible API where you could adjust the seat way up and it felt like my movements were mostly easy and unobstructed. I don't care for the weight, attachment method or the way an API climbs, though.
