Are you talking about the batwing bracket? How did you install it?

East Coast Archer. I use a harness with all of my stands as well as tying into a tether rope at ground level before going up. Only way to be safe.

In my reply I forgot to mention the M7... got one last year and its my go-to mobile lock-on with 4 LW sticks with rope instead of straps/buckles, and extender steps. About 18# grand total, sticks stacked and strapped on sideways gives a flat profile easy to slip thru woods.

The M7 is perfect after I dropped the receiver system, added a LW V-bracket, and just use one good strap. I install the strap on tree, slip stand tongue in, and tighten up...Goes up fast and quiet. Its great for a 3-4 hour hunt.

Compared to the M7, it's been MY experience that if a deer is close to you before you see it while in the M100u, can be tough to go thru all the movements to stand and shoot without detection. Certainly can be offset if hidden in tree canopy, or spot deer out further. Just something to plan for and think about ahead of time.

Great review bud, I am looking at buying a few more Millennium stands between now and next season. You mentioned the M7 so I thought I would just add on to your review for the M7.

I bought one a few weeks ago an M7. I am working on putting together a ultra light fixed stand and climbing system for the 2017 season. I have hunted the M7 a few times now and I am very pleased with it so far. Here are the quick pros and cons.

Pros:
Light. The stand weighs in at a mere 8.5 pounds
Uses the receiver system and comes with a strap style receiver
Also includes a "Safe Link" security rope so you can stay hooked up from the time you leave the ground till you touch terra-firma again.
Very comfortable. The seat makes it easy to sit all day even in this small stand. Yes you will have to stretch your legs every now and then but overall very comfortable
If you need to shoot at an angle in the stand and require the additional room the seat folds up easily and silently against the tree giving you a much larger open area than the small footprint of the stand would suggest.

Cons:
Not many. In fact the only con I have so far is the small platform would make it nearly impossible to shoot 360 degrees if you are a longbow guy like me at least. Perhaps with a shorter longbow or recurve it would be possible. I simply choose my location and my tree so that the odds of this being a factor are at a minimum.

Overall a great stand and I look forward to using it a lot more next season. For now I am still trying to make a final decision on the climbing sticks I will purchase for use with this stand.

I have 2 different sets. The heavier ones are around #12 for 4-32" sticks and the lighter ones are around #10 for 4.
