I was a novice to climbing stands until I purchased this one and have to tell you it was a good one with which to get started. I am 48 years old and no longer a spring chicken. But the stand has proven safe and a lot of fun. As a former marine perhaps the only complaint I have with it is the weight. I know humping and it is no fun to hump. Since reading your notes from other hunters I can see there are a lot lighter stands out there and I will look into one of the lighter versions.
Grand Ol Man Air Elite uses Carbon Fibre and is made in Ireland. It has a black non-slip paint type platform for your feet. They later came out with spreader arms for real;y chunky hunters like myself. New models have this feature built in. I had those V-Bar climbers and climbers that relied on lots of noisy pins. Ol Man is almost noise free. The covered chain gips more points on a tree than those V Bars. It is very sturdy and I feel it clings to tree the best of al the climbers I ever had. That net seat really is much better than any of those padded seats you see on API and others (yep, I own them too- now dust collectors in my basement)
Check out Ol Man, you will be glad you did!!!
Overall Great Stand.
Pro's - Feeling of security and safety while sitting or standing. The patented gripping arms make this stand "stand" out from the rest. This alone makes Ol' Man's worth the purchase.
Con's - Squeaks on certain types of hardwoods; Use of "bungee" cord to strap your heels in while climbing/descending (easy to lose); If you follow the instructions in the manual, it is difficult to "step" over the net seat while up in air;
