Product was shipped quickly. Great,sturdy stand. One improvement would suggest taping the ladder couplings. They rattle while climbing up and down.

Cheap Review by Rt1950

Worst stand ever. Back is to close to the tree, there's not really enough rom for two people. The seat is too low and your knees make you feel like you're sitting on an old style toilet. There 's a thick pad to sit on ,but the seat is separated tubes and your butt sinks into the spaces making your butt go numb. The straps that hole it to the tree don't hold it steady. Needed to put extra set on to feel secure. Still wobbles. The ladder is nice. Do yourself a favor. Don't buy this tree stand. Think they put them on sale to get rid of them.

not a all day stand Review by Dan
Quality
Price
Value

I bought this stand a month ago. The so called cushion is a 1'' thick hard foam more suited to be behind house siding then under your rear. The seat only has about 10" of usable room front to back. It is also super ''tinny'' loud with the expanded metal under your feet. I didn't think this would be the best stand when i bought it. I also didn't think it was going to be my worst.

Good starter Review by Kevin F.
Price
Value
Quality

Seat height is way short. Nearly squatting while sitting. Started to rust in 1 week. Sprayed all hardware after assembly to help prolong life. Harness is nice. Able to adjust it small enough to fit my 8 year old, without having to buy a really expensive one. Straps could be longer and have hooks on each end instead of loop style. Trying to toss bare straps around a large tree is impossible, forcing you to use a smaller diameter tree that you can reach around.
This is a descent starter buddy stand.

There NO WAY this is TMA Certified !!! Review by JP1237

I bought this stand for me to take my kids with me to the woods . After assembling this stand , I will not let either one of them sit in it ! The stand , footrest and seat are OK at best , but the shooting rail and the railing that surrounds me and my kids is not sturdy AT ALL !!! Buy the Ameristep double stand at the other big box store , same price , and feels ALOT more safer for me to put one of my kids in with me.

This stand does however , have better safety harnesses.....

But I still LOVE my Rural King !

Compared to my "other" buddy stand this stand is small and flimsy. It has begun to rust in just under two months. I was very disappointed in both the size and lack of support the rails give

good quality, good price. Review by bkmeis

I've had this tree stand for over a year. I use it outside of hunting season as well as during. The most significant PRO and CON are:
PRO - the stand is relatively solid and came with two good harnesses. I expect it will last a good many years to come.
CON: in less than 4 months, the frame began to rust. Now I expect rust, but not that fast. I simply bought some Rustoleum paint for covering rust spots and applied. That stuff works great - but I suppose that is another product review. Working in industry, I know that without proper and continuous quality checks, issues like poor paint processing can cause greater opportunity for rust. Overall, I am satisfied.

ok stand for the price Review by Cowboy1969

I bought this stand on sale for $89.99, alright stand for the money. I had also bought a Big Bud two person stand, directions to this ones assembly were alot easier to read and understand. Some hardware was missing and some of the pieces were hard to fit together. Got the Big Bud put together in half the time. After both were together they a both nice stands for the money.
