I've got a Summit Cobra stand and they are well built. Solid as a rock and very comfortable, probably the best of any stand I have owned comfort wise.
HOWEVER, dont, under any circumstances, EVER, think of putting it up a Hickory tree. Oh, I know, that tree looks so straight and lovely, in just the right spot and everything. Trust me, its pure death. Any day now I keep expecting to see one of those David Blaine idiots try a shagbark in a climber on his next HBO special. That would worth the $30 Pay-Per-view.
