Anyone on here run one? I ordered an m100u and just wondering what you guys thought of them, my plan is to sell most if not all of my hangons ( I have lots &lots) and use just the brackets with pre hung sticks and carry the stand with me. I also will keep my original LW assault and sticks for a mobile setup.

M100U is the Cadillac of treestands, at least out of all the hang ons I've ever had. Boarhead runs a couple m150 monsters, he loves those. All I know is once you sit in that M100U, you won't buy anything but millennium.

Hey Crayola, are you ready to make the switch yet? Your ass has to be flat as hell now from those lone wolfs[emoji23]

Yep all i use are millenniums.
The monsters are nice if ya leave em hang.
The 100 u are great for packing in.
They are all comfortable,i have done over 15 all day sits this yr,no way i could do that in any other stand.
Ric will figure it out some day Chad,well maybe not he is getting old and his mind is slipping.

I own 3. Two M-100s I leave in place and a M-100U I pack in. Most comfortable stand on the market. Money well spent...

I have an M100 original. Most comfortable stand I've ever sat in. But, although it can be used as a mobile setup, I think there are better stands available for that purpose. I've used the LW sticks and millennium combo for 5 years or so... I like it, but there's room for improvement. The stand is not heavy, but it's just large enough to be cumbersome. If I'm hanging a set that will not move for a few days then I have no issue setting up the M100. But for a true run and gun setup, in which I could give two shits about comfort, I'd opt for something smaller and lighter, with a quicker and quieter attachment system.

I should add this, though. For the purpose you stated... Leaving brackets attached to trees and whatnot... It's the best option available. If you've already got sticks and brackets in the woods, packing in and attaching a M100 is a piece of cake. That's the best application for that stand IMO.

I agree 100%. Especially if you do the versa button mod to the base.

That would be the only downside to it I see as well. Bit cumbersome. If brackets and steps are prehung it isn't too bad. That is what I generally do or I hang it midday, hunt it, leave it for a few days or a week.

Best stand on the market in my mind. One of the best items that I got turned onto from this forum.

Thinking I should give one a try. I have a killer spot but the stand I have there is uncomfortable as it gets.

You won't be disappointed. I also have a M25, killed a few out of that and pulled a couple all day sits in it also.

What about the m25 or m50? How do they compare?

I have two M25's that I leave out and like them. It's got a good sized seat and it's a lot more comfortable than those cushion seats on other stands

OHIOOutdoors2
12-10-2016, 12:22 PM
That would be my question. How does the M25 sit?

12-10-2016, 12:31 PM
Compared to a more expensive model with the back? I see Muddy makes something similar to the M25. Anyone know how that compares?

M25 is comfy, does not have back rest. That can be fixed with one of those big game back supports that you strap to the tree. IMO it's easier to stand up and also requires less movement in the m25, but not as comfy as the M100U. If you can swing the extra cash I'd go with the M100U.

I have a couple M25's and the 100U. Both are fine for an all day sit but it is the difference of 1st class vs coach. The 25's are great comfortable sits for prehung sets without packing a stand in. The M100U gives the ability to have more semi ready sets with ladders and brackets set and just bouncing location to location with the stand.

The M100u is better for naps with the back and foot rest :)

I can see the M100 would be more comfortable with the back support but how much does it hinder you if you need to stand up and stay tight to the tree? Also, how far does it keep you out away from the tree while sitting compares to a stand without the back? I like to stay as tight as possible to help with concealment.

Standing up and staying tight to the tree isn't a problem in the M100U, sitting down your a little farther away than the m25 but not by much. Just hang it in a double trunk tree.

It folds up nearly flat to the tree so standing tight to the trunk isn't an issue. My least favorite thing about it is the seat height is so low that i feel standing from a seated position is a little more challenging compared to the M25 or other stands I have.

I'm long legged. I feel like I stand up, walk to the edge of the platform, fold up the seat, and take a walk back if I go from sitting to standing in the M100. Seat is comfy. Does fold up flat. It isn't a subtle transition to stand up and fold the seat up in my opinion.

I have no issues standing up in the M100. With a little practice, you can stand up, and use one hand to lift the seat and attach the bungee to hold it up, all in one smooth motion.

Maybe it is just me. I can do what you are saying as well. I just don't feel as if I am doing it with minimal movement to be noticed. That seat is long. Makes it comfy. It also means you aren't standing straight up and folding the seat while staying 8-10" from the tree. You have 15-18" gap between you and the tree until it is up and you are going back to leaning against the tree. That "feels" like I am sticking out depending upon which tree my bracket is in. I don't always feel concealed during this process.

Press down on the straps that are attached to the seat as you stand up. The seat folds as you are standing, and as you come up out of the seat, you can walk it back against the tree.

5" Wider seat, 1" deeper, and it sits an inch higher on the millennium. They are on sale for $87, a whopping $8 more than the muddy.

M25 can't use the bracket, M50 and up can. M50 also has a leveling platform.

Press down on the straps that are attached to the seat as you stand up. The seat folds as you are standing, and as you come up out of the seat, you can walk it back against the tree.

This is exactly how I do it.

You should be a salesman BS51. I really like the idea of having bracket in tree. Too bad they will charge an extra $14 for "free shipping"

12-13-2016, 11:01 PM
Has a lever action system to secure to the tree. In regards to a crooked tree or left/right adjustment, I do not believe it does.

$100-125 though. I'd venture to say the seat will be very comparable to the Millennium seat in regards to comfort.

Lol. I was looking at yote stretchers on cabelas a little bit ago and they tacked on shipping when I added it to the cart even though it said free shipping.

Still a good deal though. Phil sells those rivers edge stands and they are comfy from what I hear. I like the bracket option though.

For ladder stands? rivers Edge is the one to get for comfort and room...

Well I got the M50 today. I'm very impressed with how it came put together for the most part. I'm also a fan of the very nice "SafeLine" that came with it. I know most every company includes harness, but I think they got it right including life line. Everything feels well put together. Going to hang it up tomorrow morning for a Friday evening sit just to try it out!
