Climbing tree stands? Whats good?

I am looking at getting a climbing tree stand since I am hunting on public land this year and can't put up a real one. Plus I am hunting about 4 different locations depending on conditions/sign and would like the option to set up on the fly. What are you guys using, and what should I look for in a rifle hunting stand? Price is somewhat of a consideration, but I would rather pay than break my neck or scare everything off while setting it up.

thanks

Go American Made and buy a LONE WOLF, you won't be sorry! They are about the last treestands not made in China. They now hae a rifle rest for their climbers.

I did't know Summit was made in China. Mine is at least 15 years old.

Mine is a bit newer, but I got it "used" but never actually used.

I am on my 2nd summit 180 and I love it.The 1st one was stolen.As far as lone wolf they are way over priced.And not as comfortable as a summit.I laugh at my friend who bought one and now wants my summit.
