Do you own one and use it?
I am curious about the bright loop and "memory" of the attachment cable. It appears to be the same technology used on many climbers that use a cable loop and pin system. I know they say "bright" for the loop and I suspect it has some light reflective paint or material on the loop to make it show up.
I like the sling (ol' man treestand) type of seat and I really like the weight they post. These come in right at the same weight as the timbertall brute light, which by the way has the same cable loop and pin hook up and uses the same technique to produce "memory" with the cable.
The downfall of the timbertall, and I suspect the treewalker as well, is the pin and loop hookup is usually a pain when compared to other hook up systems utilized by other tree stands. The system used on the Lone Wolf (cam and belt) is just fantastic and is truely one you can do with your eyes closed. So is the system on the Equalizer treestand innovative and very easy to use in the dark. The Summit system is also easier to use then the pin and loop system.
The pin and loop system is not a deal breaker for me, I go for comfort and light weight and the treewalker may be one I add to my collection. I think it would compare favorably to the timbertall. I have various climbers for different situations I encounter.
Tenn. Equinox, could we talk you into doing a review on the treewalker if you own one. I would be interested in your thoughts about the hook up system and any other insight into the stand you might share with us.
