Hunter Cory Yarmuth wasn’t a fan of climbing tree stands until he saw the Summit Viper SD. “Weighing in at 20 pounds [its] one of the lightest climbers around,” said Yarmuth. “Climbing with the stand was easy and the adjustments on the climbing cables were simple and quiet. I was able to get much higher in the tree than with a standard hang-on or ladder stand.” Welded aluminum construction results in a tree stand that quieter to climb, and the adjustable seat, cushioned armrests, and padded climbing seat bar makes it “the most comfortable stand that I have had the pleasure to use.” Because of the Viper SD’s versatility, Yarmuth was able to harvest an impressive 8-point buck—the real reason why he recommends this climbing tree stand to everyone.
