Summit Viper Elite
on December 6, 2012
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.
