I am looking for a light hang on stand. It will be used here in Colorado for elk so it will be carried 2-3 miles in rough terrain. So weight is the most important thing.

I have an older Warren & Sweats that weighs in around 8 lbs but wanted another stand.

Thoughts??

From: Brotsky Date: 03-Aug-06
Lone wolf makes the lightest I can think of. Their hang on weighs in at 8.5 lbs so it's still about the same as what you have.

From: Termin8r Date: 03-Aug-06
Trophyline Ambush Saddle. Hands down the lightest, able to roll up and place in backpack and QUIET.

From: Milo Date: 03-Aug-06
I have an old API that is extremely light. I don't even know if they make them anymore but it seems like it weighs nothin'.

From: Coop Date: 03-Aug-06
If weight is your main purpose do a goggle on Loc On tree stands. Someone is back to making them. Aswesome stand actually. Windtalker, I think is the model your looking for.

From: Steve Edwards Date: 03-Aug-06
Loggy Bayou used to make a Hang on Lite.Unbelievably light.

From: KYhunter Date: 03-Aug-06
I have a couple of Warren& Sweats that weigh a little over 6 lbs.

The Loc On "LIMIT" and Loggy Bayou " Cheap seat " are both about 4 lbs. I have both

From: Deacon Dave Date: 04-Aug-06
I have an old loc-on spirit that is extremely light, but the seat is the most uncomfortable of any stand I have ever tried. DD

From: Wary Buck Date: 05-Aug-06
Loc-On Windwalker is what you want for this. Very light, very packable, and very easy to set up in a tree. Not the most comfortable stand in the world, but you have to give up something. I think they're about 5 lbs. but could be wrong. I've got an old one that I keep in the truck ready at a moment's notice. And I've done several all-dayers in it when required.

From: Milo Date: 05-Aug-06
Zim,

That's it. The API 100. Do you know how much they weigh? I went to a local sporting goods store here and the guy I talked with said he couldn't get them anymore.

From: bb Date: 05-Aug-06
Loc On Windwalker, I use it for exactly the same thing you are looking to do, it is very light and small. I can fit it in my backpack and is easy to walk several miles with in elk country.

I heard they are making them again

From: outdoorsaddict Date: 05-Aug-06
Deacon Dave, Loc-On has a new "super seat" that replaces the old cloth seat. It bolts right where the old seat frame was. I have one ordered for my "Super Spirit"- I went to Home Depot and bought some foam pipe insulation and cut a piece to fit around my old seat where it folds. This has helped some.

From: Deacon Dave Date: 05-Aug-06
outdoorsaddict, Thanks for the tip. I don't know the wt. on my loc-on but it is light enough that my wife packed it in with me two miles in Mt. to find that the waterhole was dry. I want give her age, but she is almost as old as I am and my next birthday I will be 60. The hunt was two years ago. She packed it out without complaining. She was as disappointed as I was about the waterhole being dry. There were elk tracks all around, but it was so dry they could have been months old. If only had it had water. Shoot sharp - shoot straight! DD

Search ebay for a Loggy Bayou Cheap Seat. About 6 pounds. I have one stached in Colorado in the high country and it works well. Not the most comfortable stand, but who cares, its light!

The Windwalker was also very light, perhaps 5 pounds if you can find one.

Lone Wolf Alpha Assault. 8.5 lbs., rated to 350, and TMA certified, which many of the listed stands above are not and are no-longer on the market for a reason.

From: VASCAR Date: 08-Aug-06
Some stand manufactures will brag about how light there stands are but you need to compare platform sizes. Lone Wolf is "top dog" when it comes to a lite stand with a decent sized platform. And NO I don't own one. I've looked at them but I can't justify spending that much for one unit.
