This is another great stand from Lone Wolf. With the cast aluminum frame it makes for a completely silent treestand. I have never spooked an animal because of my treestand squeaking or making unwanted noise. This stand is a little bit bigger than the assault model weighing 14 pounds, which is still very light compared to other hang on treestands. It has a much bigger platform and seat then the assault model and can be more comfortable when sitting for longer periods of time. Overall, I believe that this stand is worth the money and a very great investment.
