    Had two steel ones, made from round tubing. Used one up till about 4 year ago. Like the aluminum one SO much better...

    I probably have seen them if round tubing and didn’t know what the brand was. I have only owned two climbers and both are aluminum. One of thing for sure the buckshot is a good one IMO.

    The one I have is sold by Austin Treestands, it's a copy of the Buckshot. It is a little longer which gives you about 6 inches of more room between you and the tree.

    I only have one of the aluminum ones now...buy plan to get another for my Daughter.

    Another great thing about the buckshot is NO TOE straps to fiddle with/have squirrels eat "em"/rot etc.. Just kick your toes out under the side braces and away you go!

    I did away with the rope cinches they used to hold the the two sections together when you pack it up. I used the thick black rubber tie down straps. Mine has expanded metal foot platform so it is easy to hook. Some have a slat platoform. Also worth note are the gun holder from Buckshot that clamps to the arms, if still available.

    Buddy of mine has a Tree Walker. It has large screw type teeth to grip the tree...after climbing a pine a couple of times with it the sap from all the holes in the tree is a mess.

    My son uses a tree walker and loves it. It is very steady and secure . The large screws really bite into a tree.

    Most all climbers make a mess on a pine tree if you climb it a couple times. Seen a couple trees killed they were climbed so many time. Anyone ever got chastised about damaging trees with a climber.

    I like how you can face or lean against the tree. I know buckshots have a great reputation. Ive sat in one a time or two.
