Sounds like your committed! Watch the arm rests and steep shots, they can get in the way!

The X-1 climber is •NET WEIGHT: 9.6 Lbs. (frame only)•GROSS WEIGHT: 13.8 Lbs. (including all accessories).

I thought that the Summit Open Shot was the lightest climber I had found at 15 Lbs, but this X-1 is a couple pounds lighter. A few pounds starts to feel like 50 pounds after a long hike.

My knees stayed in the tree when climbing but once set up it did ok. Not for long sits but for 2 or 3 hours it was fine. It’s not in the same league as my summit.

I have the same feeligs as this

Well I'm not too heavy, I weigh 175-180 but I'm 6'4'' lol. Climbing is always the easy part for me with any climbers, long legs help me get up and down pretty quick. Especially since 12 feet is about where I like to be. Being comfortable is a problem sometimes. We'll see how it goes. These will be relatively short sits so I'm not too worried.

Being taller will make it more difficult for you. Thats the problem I had. Climbing up trees wore me out, going down wasn’t as bad bit climbing with my X Climber just plumb wore me out and I am almost 6’ tall.

It came today and I tinkered around with it in the backyard. It's light, and climbing wasn't too bad from what little I did (about 8 feet). All the reviews I've read said the instructions are horrible and the backpack straps suck...which I found to be true. If you're familiar with climbers it's not hard to figure out how to set it up and climb, but the instructions for packing it up and packing are garbage. And the straps are really uncomfortable, for me at least. But overall for the price I'm happy, I'll rig up some more straps.

I think this is exactly what I'm gonna do. It's light, but these little thin straps that came with it really dig into my shoulders.

Till you get the pack straps and belt, I think I found it more comfortable to carry just over one shoulder at my side opposite my bow. But I may be thinking about my LW before I bought the pack straps and belt

I hunted out of it for the first time yesterday evening. It climbs well on pine trees, and it is definitely light. Not as comfortable as some others I've used but it's not bad at all. I ordered some new Molle straps on **** and they should be here this week. I think after I get the straps swapped out it's gonna be just about perfect for what I wanted.

There's a guy that has a good YouTube video on packing and climbing a tree with it, think it's pretty easy to find

Thanks, CRM-95.

How do you feel the stand will do/grip on hardwood trees such as oak?
