Just saw a teaser video on the new climber from lwcg. He said a fully detailed video will be released this week and will answer most people’s questions.

I can’t wait to see this stand, been looking forward to it for months.

Summit HAD made an 18 lb Viper. It was the Elite SD. Made of big round tubes.

I have Two. Summit stopped making them.
Hahaha. I still use my Elite SD. 16lbs. That & the specialist where both decent stands & a great weight.
Probably 2 of there best climbers. That was 2011-2012 or something.

When they discontinued those is when summit started going in pointless directions. Way heavier, bulkier
& more expensive. They seriously need to fire some people & get the ball rolling again. I wouldn't buy any
of there new stands at even half the cost.

I would save up for that LW climber though. The packability looks great. I wonder what the weight will come
in at. Still can really wrap my head around the half moon shape if you want to stand & lean against the tree.
Thinking it might be like the old openshot where the seat folds & acts as a kind of lumbar support.

Can't wait to see more details on this.

I can’t imagine the cost to machine the platform from aluminum plate-no wonder they cost so much. They could honestly shave another pound or two if they designed that bottom platform a little different, and if they went with a full mesh seat......but it’s still a pretty slick setup as it is. Definitely the most packable climbing stand on the market.

They need to make that one bolt on the bottom (left side support tube) a left hand thread-it always comes loose on mine after I climb the tree because my boot spins it loose.

I would not buy the LW. Haven’t you seen the recent fracture threads ? It looks like something i would not like, and i can barely understand the dude whos talking.
The one you're talking about is a cast stand. These new one are machined out of a solid piece of Aluminum... it's not cheap.

I sold my hand climber 2 about a month ago, I ordered a .75 hang on which I love, but this new climber is about as good as it gets imo though, if you hunt in areas with straight trees and want the lightest setup you can have I don’t think you’ll be able to beat this
