    Just ordered an Ol' Man "The Roost" fixed-position tree stand. I have 4 other hang ons but I've decided that the arms on the side will give me more security from falling plus the net type seat will slide back out of the way when I want it to instead of having to reach down and flip up the seat so I can put my back to the tree giving me a slimmer profile against the tree. I should have it in 3 to 6 days coming from Indiana. It was an online only item from Dicks Sporting Goods plus I used a $25 off coupon. I like the chain system it uses compared to the nylon straps that can rot over time. Most of my stands are up 4 to 5 and more months a year.

    I have been considering some of those. I like the chain better than the strap. And I was thinking about sliding the net seat just like you said
    . Does it also flip up??

    Got the stand by UPS on Friday. Not bad from Indiana...Ordered Monday and got it Friday...and the shipping was free. Only assembly is slipping on the arm rests and that is just sliding inside a tube until the two locking pins pop through the pin holes. Plenty of chain for even the biggest of trees. You can flip the arm rest down out of the way if you want or even flip the whole seat up out of the way as long as the tree is narrower than your buttockal area of the seat (30").

    All I need now is for Thursday to get here so I can go hang it.

    We shall see how it rates in the "Z" factor. :bored:

    Looks good! I may have to look into getting one of those. I get too uncomfortable on my cheapie hang-on stands, and get too comfortable in climbers like the Summit Viper (I think that's the stand), slept the whole hunt away in that dang thing, was like a hammock!
