    I’m looking into a climbing stand for big guys. 300+ weight limit. I’m 320 but not really overweight as in wide. Just tall and big. I’d like to hear some suggestions if you have any. Thanks

    Summit Goliath. It's huge, but it's a Cadillac. I'm only #200 but I love that climber, once it's on the tree lol.

    My brother goes 350 at 6’1” and he’s as wide as they come lol
    He has a lone wolf climber and loves it, I’ll ask him what model

    I have a goliath like meat stick it’s pretty awesome. Takes a little work like all climbers but man it sits great. I’m 6-2 280, well maybe 6-1, shrinking as I get older.

    I’m a big guy and the Summitt Goliath is what I use. I got a couple of vipers too but upper section is narrow and it only goes 300lb where the Goliath is wider and rated for 350. I’ve done a ton of all day sits in the Goliath

    My buddy uses the Summitt Goliath and he’s 6’6 and pushing 400. Probably too much for the stand but it hasn’t failed yet.

    I have a viper and love it just wish it was a tad bigger. I’m only 200 but I’m almost too wide for it. Probably gonna upgrade to a Goliath at some point

    I have an extra Tree Lounge I would sell. They are extremely safe! I don't know of a safer climber out there.
