Default New Climber Options?

Time to add another climber and while I love a Summit Viper despite the flaking paint, I am open to something else as long as it holds to the tree once in hunting position. I don't need a overly comfy lounge type seat. I just want a sturdy climber that sticks to the tree.

Has anyone tried the Hawk Bone Collector Warbird? Rural King is selling these as well as Bass Pro for about $215.00

Thanks

IF, I were in the market for another climber, i would spend the
extra money to get a Treewalker......Allows facing tree or outward
and great tree holding ability.....20lbs...

I like the Summit's (I have 2). I have a sweet that faces the tree and I do not like it. I have a cottonwood that faces the tree - but it sits way out from the tree and is great for very wide trees. I also use a tripod stand and like that the best. I use a ground blind for open areas like fields.
