I've got a couple of climbers and 3 ladder stands. The climbers are more versatile because they're easily moved from one location to the other. My ladder stands are more comfortable for those all day sits, though.

Don't forget... No matter what brand or style you buy, ALWAYS wear a SAFETY HARNESS!!!!!!

The biggest part of my stands are ladder stands. They all have flip up seats and full platforms so you can get back against the tree. I agree with VA Hunter that they are more comfortable for all day sits. I don't care for hang on's at all. If I need to be "portable" I have a TreeSuit which I absolutely love! Lets you get into a place fast and easy with not much to carry.

I have two Grollia King Kongs that I really like and and API Ultra Steel like all three for the simple fact that they have large platforms (30"x24" with flip up seats). I also have an two man ladder stand but have never took the time to use it as of yet. I also have an climber that I use strictly for Moose hunting each year so that I can change stand location if needed.

I usaully buy at least one if not two stands each year along with screw in steps for each stand.

My climber is definitely the most comfortable I've been in! I can't sit motionless for long in a hang on. My butt gets too sore! In the climber, I can easily fall asleep.
If you're not leaning, no one can let you down.

Never really used stands, but hopefully after this season I'll be able to say Ameristep.

I like my Summit Viper. Easy to set up and climb. I can sit in it all day with no problem.
