Since I have gotten out of the North Starr stand business , and only have enought money for a couple Loc-ons. I am looking at the loggy Monarch or Summit Copperhead. I like these because they have really big platforms and are light, loggy- 10lbs, summit -15lbs. I have looked at the Gorilla line and love the seat but the weight and platform size is not what I need. Let me know.

I recently purchased the monarch. I have hung it in the backyard to practice shooting out of and I like it so far. The platform is a real nice size and the seat is really comfortable. The only thing I have against it is the straps that they give you to carry it are not that comfortable. Other than that I have no complaints. The seat is made of cloth and I worry that once wet, it will be hard to dry. Hope this helps.

hey seems all of them put the cheap straps to carry, but the North Starr 's had a really good backpack strap. I think the Pro model has a waterproof cover on the seat. Do you think you could sit a long time on the seat? does it feel strudy? What steps are you using?Where did you get yours? Thanks for the info.

WRT the seats...look at the difference between the two. The Loggy seat is wide at the front while the Copperhead seat narrows down to a point. This was done to avoid that "bite" into the back of your legs for those long sits. I have a Summit Clearshot climber (which is basically the climbing version of the Copperhead) and they share the same seat design. From what I recall, the new Copperheads fold flat and are only 12lbs.

I got the loggy last year and I'm sure the weight is more like 8lb - that's REALLY light. Super easy to lift up a tree and setup.
I hunted out of it about 5 times and had no complaints. I think one model actually has a waterproof seat cover.
This year I'll have several trees with pegs already set and will use the Loggy as a mobile stand...

I recently bought 2 Monarch Ultra Lights. They come in at 8 pounds. I have not hunted from them yet, but they seem like a great stand for the money. They hold 300 pounds, have a big platform, are quiet, are very nice to carry. I go tmine for elk hunting. I have no complaints so far, but I have not sat in one for very long yet either. The Copperhead looks to have a more comfortable seat, but it cost a lot more too compared to the $80 I spent on the Loggy.
