This stand is more bowhunter oriented IMO. The sling seat allows you to sit much higher from the armrest than the regular viper which helps to keep the stand from contacting you bow when you get up for the shot. Its still pretty comfortable though. I've made several 5 hour sits and didn't mind it. I still use my Viper when gun hunting because it has a more comfortable seat, however that seat will fit on the Elite and the you'll have the best of both worlds. The sling seat also makes for a quicker, simpler setup and pack up procedure. The base is a little noisy with the "C" channel slats so I coated the underside with a automotive type undercoat. This seemed to help greatly. The weight of this stand is where its worth the extra coin. When you walk .5-1.5 mile with this on your back you won't miss the extra 6-7 pounds other full size climbers carry. One star deduction for the padding a base noise, Hope this helps.

Well, I ordered this climber for the opening day of rifle season here in Missouri. It arrived on Thursday, I took it with me to the cabin on Fri, and was in it at 5:30 Sat morning. Within 30 minutes, I'd already shot 2 big doe. This climber is INCLREDIBLY silent. The coating on the metal won't scratch guns. It's so light weight that I could walk miles with it on my back, though I am 22 and full of energy anyway. My biggest concern, and I don't think I'm the only one, was comfort. I'm used to using a fold-out stool that I picked up at Walmart. The stool created uneven pressure my bottom and legs and is unbelievably uncomfortable after just an hour of sitting. This climber was a great alternative. The seat is evenly stretched when you sit down, so it doesn't pull unevenly on your bottom to create pressure points. If I ever need another tree stand, I'll order another on of these. The only complaint I have is the little, metal loop you have to pull down on to put the cables in and out that go around the tree on the climber itself. It's not very easy to take off the tree fast, but putting it on the tree is not a problem at all. Overall, I highly recommend this climber to everyone out there who needs an archery & rifle stand in one. You won't regret it.

This is a nice safe and lightweight climber that is easy to set up and you will feel very secure sitting it or standing.
you can sit and look behind the tree

Bought one at Academy a few days ago to replace my viper classic (I bought it way before it was a classic) the original viper was made of steel and heavy, hard to take down and put up but this new Elite is 100% better than the original climber summit produced. However I used the original for several years, took many nice deer with it and really didn't have any complaints about it until I got the new one. I guess all the people that have complaints about this stand should try one of the old one's for about 10years or so.

Stand is light, but seat is extremely uncomfortable. Seat must be replaced unless you intend to use as a 'standing' stand. The only support that the seat provides is the forward 2 inch strap, which cuts into your legs/bottom and reduces circulation. The "backrest" is a 2 inch wide pad that provides no support. Very disappointed with seat/back design. Summit blew this one.. Previous Summit stands much better..

This is a very nice lightweight stand I have sat in it several times for 4hrs plus. The seat is not to comfortable after that. The stand can be loud with the back pack straps clinging against the hollow base, I haven't found a fix for that yet. All in all I like it to replace my old steel viper although the seat is going to be a tough switch.

Seat really sucks and is so uncomfortable. Front edge of seat digs into legs. I sure hope they have a chair seat that will fit stand..

This really won't work "out of the box" for me without some modifications. First thing I must complain about is the method of climbing as designed. The plastic boot supports are a good idea, but they are really cheap and the bolt that holds them to the stand is unbelievably tiny. That will not last long and god forbid one of them breaks while 30 feet up.. Hey Summit, there is a lawsuit waiting to happen and you read it here first! Those need to be aluminum with strong sturdy bolts because you just can't take chances with the climbing design. There is a small bungee cord for your heels to help hold your boots in the stirrups, but that is pretty much useless I had to add a better heel strap. The seat is horrible and uncomfortable. Mine did not come with the attaching strap for the two pieces so I had to improvise in the field. If a newcomer didn't know that those two pieces MUST be connected, it would probably not end well for him. Those should come attached from the factory really that is another thing you just cannot leave to chance. Overall, a very good product but plenty of room for some simple improvements. Climbing a tree with a gun is no game, and every effort must be made to make these things as safe as possible.
