There is no best tree stand, it’s only best for you and that will be different for each person. When looking at stands you have to figure out what’s important for you and in what order of importance, things like weight, pack ability, noise, and comfort. Then you can get good opinions from others that have experience with different stands if they know what is important to you.
Lone wolf climbers are my choice. I believe they have the best platform of all the stands that I have used. This platform is totally silent and never creaks. They also fold down flat and can be buried if you don't like to be carrying it back and forth all the time.
