Everyone needs to check out http://www.treelinestands.com/. This is truly the best kept secret in the hunting industry! I met them at the ATA show this year and they had a great demo set up. I sat in their stand nearly a half an hour while we talked and was AMAZED at the comfort!!! The platform is big enough to turn around on, they have a foot rest for long sits, and their attachment system is first class. You can hang 5-6 brackets around your farm and then rotate 2-3 stands as you follow deer patterns. This gives you 6 setups for the price of 3!

I will be picking up (4) hang-on stands in March on my way to hog hunt. I will provide pics then and a write up to let you know what I think. Check em out!

Kinda look like a cross between a millinium and a lone wolf.

Its got the millenium type seating without the back, very comfortable. The platform is bigger than the assault: 24" x 30" versus 19.5" 27.5". They are 100% made in the USA and a great group of guys too!

Stand weighs 24lbs! That's way too much for me.
I also didn't see that they were TMA certified, but I could have missed it.

I talked to the engineer today and this is their first model; steel. Therefore, this makes it heavier. They will be releasing an aluminum model that will be much lighter, but their manufacturing is set up for steel today. Yeah I would agree, 24 lbs in on the heavier side for a treestand. But keep in mind, this is not a climbing stand! It is a lock-on style stand, therefore you hang it early season and hunt it later. So normally when I hang a lock-on I can drive right up to the tree because its pre-season. Not sure that this fits your style, just something to think about.

It's a lock-on style that has brackets to hang multiple sets so you don't have to buy multiple stands. So you would use a stand like this to save money and prevent thefts, correct? Either way your going to have to lug this thing around. Why would you, when you can buy virtually any climbing stand that would be lighter? Or just get a millenium or LW that comes in at about 8lbs less.

It has the backpack style straps to wear while transporting to the tree. I am not sure that I would sacrifice comfort and the ability to sit all day for just 6-8 lbs!

For me, comfort comes in the seat and angle of the backrest -- this is what makes Millenium so comfortable. I think Gorrilla came out with a similar lower seat portion to this as well (both from the Millenium desing), but it's still not going to be the same comfort because having to sit upright with your back against the tree is what makes it very uncomfortable for me -- it's got nothing to do with the bottom portion.

Some of the climbers (my older API and I think some of the Summit stands) have sling style seats that hang down, but the angle of the backrest can be adjusted by scooching the bottom portion forward. I still cannot get the same angle and comfort as I can from my M100 though.

the only thing i dont like is the way the seat is constructed - comfortable or not. if the seat material tears - one squirrel or a falling branch and the seat is SHOT. At least with other stands, you would still have a metal frame under the cushion so that you can use the seat without the pad (carry my own normally anyway).

2) Pricing information is now available.
3) Full manufacturing will begin in May 2011.
