I bought my first Summit climber the other day, Razor. I'm making way to much noise when I remove the cables from the stand. As you well know, you have to remove them at a slight angle and when I pull on them they let loose all of a sudden and I'm making a heck of a racket doing it. The more I use the stand, will the cables limber up some? If they do, I think that will take care of my problem. I'm still practicing. So far I like the stand.........:)

One thing I do with the Summit is to take the area where the cables go into the square tube. File off any slight burrs if there are any. Then if you want you can put a foam adhesive tape in the ends or, I put the spray foam insulation in all of the openings. Just put the spray in a manor that will effect getting the cables in and, out. I found that the thinner adhesive foam tape(use small pieces) just in the ends of the square tubes works well. I took the lower section of the stand and, filled the entire openings up with spray foam--totally dead as far as sound now.

Yes the cables will limber up some. Actually the shrink tubing is what loosens up a bit I think.

Take your time and you will be able to do it really quietly. The RAZOR is supposed to be another great Summit product. I have the Viper and really like it.

I have a Viper too, and it took a little while before I really could sneak up a tree. Keep practicing you will get the hang of it. Good luck this season.

I converted two people over to summit climbers from other climbers in the past couple of years. They both hated it at first. They both said that it was to noisey but after using it for awhile and getting the hang of it they would not use anything else now. They are get stands and you will get better at it in time. :wink:

I have an open shot that I bought last year but did not use it ,this year I plan on using it more and I found out that with practice and not rushing to set up that it has to be the quietest climbing stand that I have ever owned and the more you use it the quieter and better it will work out for you.
