I know the Millennium is the most comfortable and the LW likely the quietest. I want one that is comfortable (I do not particularly like the LWs for long sits) but I want one where I can shoot behind the stand and with the back rest on the Millennium M100 and M150 I think the back of the seat would get in the way of shooting behind the tree. I do not need a back rest but do prefer a suspension or net style seat. I want at least 30" platform and would prefer a footrest. I am tall enough and old enough where shorter than that is tough on my knees for a long hunt.
Weight is always important but 15 lbs or less for the stand is fine.
Ease of hanging is a big factor but one being slightly easier to hang than another won't be a deciding point. A stand being a pain to hang would rule it out for this use.
Thanks in advance.
However easy to put on tree, ( practiced this am) and solid and light than to haul up and pin in cam lock....... It is a true run and gun stand...... comfortable seat....
I found it easy to hang,,,, with my lone wolf, I have to balance the stand, while the strap goes around the tree, not awful, but always another thing to do.....
with the M7 I simply go up my sticks, and set the ratchet system,,,, I haul up the stand, pin one side on, and drop in, practiced it a few times, to get it right, but this stand on your back is a dream,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
The old Gorrilla stands were pretty good....I have 4 of the King Kongs. I believe another company called Hawk bought the rights or patents and I have one of their new ones with the mesh backrest. Not sure if this fits your requirements but FYI anyway.
