I'm in great need of the top section for an API Bowhunter treestand. Nothing extra, just the bare metal section. I contacted Bass Pro and API. Was told by BOTH that API stands were manufactured overseas and there was NO WAY I could buy just one section. Bass Pro suggested I contact a local machine shop and have one fabricated. API suggested I try e-bay. API also told me they receive calls like mine EVERYDAY for replacement parts and have to turn down the customer. Who does Bass Pro and API think keeps them going? It's the North American outdoorsman and women that spend their money there. Oh yeah', just for the heck of it I called Summit and was told that there was NO PROBLEM buying replacement parts for any current stand and even some older ones. I've been a loyal user of API stands for years and own several and I think it really stinks that you can't get a replacement part for one. Just wanted to blow off some steam and share my thoughts about Bass Pro and API with everyone.
