The Titan SD Climbing Tree Stand from Summit Treestands is distinctive within the range because it is the largest climbing tree stand offered by the company. This is a tree stand that gives you the freedom of hunt locations thanks to the fact that the stand can be positioned without the need for steps or a ladder. It has also given the hunter the luxury of additional space with an additional 2” of climber width and length compared to the Viper which shares a similar shape. The SD (Sound Deadening) 6 channel aluminum platform is also roomier with an additional 1” of width and 2” of length.
This climbing tree stand has been designed to accommodate the larger body shape with a maximum weight capacity of 350lbs. The extra seat size and platform means that even when encumbered by gear and bulky clothing there is going to be plenty of room to move. The seat is padded for additional comfort and adjusts up and down allowing standing and seated shooting.
Noise minimization has been built into the stand thanks to the Dead Metal Sound Deadening SD Technology used in the construction of the platform. The way in which this sound deadening technology works is through the filling of critical parts of the platform with custom engineered expanding foam which reduces noise caused by movement on the platform.
This is a particularly stable climber with a simple Quickdraw cable system that allows for climbing that is quick and quiet. The stand itself has a wide open front for a complete field of vision that will allow plenty of room for movement that won't be impeded when taking your shot.
Included with the unit is a full-body safety harness. This 4-point safety harness provides you with the type of safety feature that will ensure complete security when in place high above the ground. The stand itself comes with a green utility strap and an umbilical rope as well as RapidClimb stirrups to ensure that it will be securely attached to the tree.
Because of the additional size that has been built into the design of the Titan there is also additional weight to contend with. This is not going to be the light as a feather type of tree stand that you will get from other Summit climbing tree stands such as the Specialist SD but it makes up for that with sturdy comfort.
