Long one of the best-known stands on the climber market, Summit has upgraded their Viper SD into the Viper Pro SD. This new variant features the QuickdrawPro cable system for faster and easier attachment to the tree. The system has comfort grips built in, as well as quick-connect triggers that ease cable adjustments. Its new design also allows for the trigger retention pins to be replaced by a padlock or cable lock, in order to deter theft while attached to a tree.
Next, the Summit FasTrack system allows hunters to add Summit accessories to the exterior of the seat frame. FasTrack accessories include Summit’s Ultimate Hook, Rifle Holder and Phone Holder accessories.
The Viper Pro SD also comes updated with a new one-piece wrap-around arm pad that fully covers the front rail and armrests for added comfort and sound-dampening properties. The seat is now dressed in Mossy Oak Elements Terra.
Despite these changes, the Summit Viper Pro SD features the same strength and safety systems as the original Viper, such as SummitLokt joints, where all joints are locked into place before welding to reduce stress on the welds; RapidClimb Stirrups designed to keep the climber’s boots securely attached to the platform while ascending and descending; and Summit’s DeadMetal sound dampening technology that fills critical parts of the stand with expanding foam.
The aluminum Viper Pro SD weighs in at 22 pounds, will hold up to 300 pounds and will attach to trees 8 inches to 20 inches in diameter. For more information, please visit summitstands.com. MSRP: $479.99
