Default Looking to trade

Bought a viper from a forum member a few weeks ago. Climbed in the yard a few times and took to the woods today. I've had API climbers forever. Would like to trade if interested. The viper is in great shape and very comfortable once I'm up but having a hard time climbing. I think I'm too short or something. Can't get a good feel for it and I'm ready to hunt and not practice anymore.

if the foot stirrups are set up correctly it is a breeze. I have never heard someone complain about climbing with a summit

I love being first in anything I do. Ha. I'll try adjusting them again and see. I guess I could move them closer to front of foot platform so it's closer to the arm of the seat. Seems like it should stay as close to the tree as
Possible for easy pick up. I don't know. Never had one and kinda lost. I jump in an API and go. Creature of
Habit I guess.

You need to slide the stirrups away from the tree. You need them positioned where you can flex the stand (front and rear up and down) by rotating your feet (pointing toes up and down). That way you can angle the back down to release and pull easy, then angle it back flat to catch the tree again. When the stirrups are positioned so your boots wedge under them kinda tight you have it just right.

I LOVE my Summit stands with stirrups. I will NEVER go back to straps on the bottom. I cant stand having to bend down and pull them over my boots when its time to climb down.

What are you looking to trade it for?

Ok. You guys seem real sure on these stands. Maybe I'll just trade some beers for some training. Ha. I'll get out there this afternoon and mess with it and see what's up.

Ok. I'm gonna ask my mom tomorrow at church if she ever dropped me when I was little. The slightest adjustment made a heck of a difference. Thanks for the help. Rob, it worked perfect. Yeah I'm a dummy. Let's go hunting!!

As I found out opening morning the foot stirrups work great IF they are in the correct location. Its been a few years since I used my Viper and I spent thirty minutes fighting my stand getting up a tree.
