Summit Bullet Backpacker Tree Stands

Tree Stands Manufacturer: Summit
Summit Model: Bullet Backpacker
Review Category: Tree Stands

Purchase: Tree Stands I found information about this stand through a Cabella catalogue. After reviewing several stands, I decided to purchase the Bullet Backpacker at a price of $325.00

Things I like about the Summit Bullet Backpacker Tree Stands: The unit is compact, fairly light weight, and confortable. It's a easy stand to mount to a tree and climb.

What I don't like about the Summit Bullet Backpacker: I'm finding fairly rapid wear on the stand. The rubber coating on the cables that wrap around the tree are wearing fast and will need to be replaced at the end of the first season in use. The rubber helps maintain a quite climb, but I'm a bit concerned at how rapidly its wearing away.

Tree Stands Bullet Backpacker quality: Solid construction of aluminum with padding on all surfaces that can make noise. It's a two piece unit where the foot unit has straps for your feet while the top piece (seat and shooting rail) are used when climbing to sit on while you raise the lowre, foot, unit. Beside the wear on the rubber that wraps around the cable that runs around the tree, I have nop concerns about the constuction/maintenance of the stand.

Bullet Backpacker summary: Excellent tree stand...would buy another. However, I've learned that I'll need to replace the cables prpoably every year. I live in South Caroline where the hunting season lasts from August 15th through January 1st...a very long season. As someone who hunts several times a week, my stand is getting lots of use. That all said, I'd expect wear and tear so my comments about the rubber cable cover are really what I'd expect.
