The Podium A Saddle Hunting Platform.
Weighing in at exactly 3 pounds is our first saddle hunting platform, the “Podium.” Solely made from aluminum and coated in a soft polyester finish, this incredibly lightweight platform is sure to be quiet on even the coldest days. Thanks to the two knobs located on the underside of this saddle hunting platform, you are able to level the “Podium” front to back to ensure a solid and stable set at all times. Included with the “Podium” is a strong, heavy duty pull strap to help secure the platform quickly and quietly. Note: 300LB Weight Limit!
Advantages Of Saddle Hunting
- Extremely Lightweight Tree Saddles: Tree Saddles are lightweight, making you more mobile. Perfect for the Public Land Owner!
- Little to no noise: With tree saddle, you don’t get the noise typically associated with pulling up tree stands.
- Hunters Safety: While there have been lots of hunters who have fallen from conventional tree stands, when saddle hunting you are tethered to the tree from the moment you leave the ground until you step back on it after the hunt, making it almost impossible to fall.
First off thanks for shipping on time !! I like the Podium it's solid and I feel confident that it will support my weight. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is that it takes some amount of practice/effort to ensure it's really snug up to the tree before you cam in over. I'm sure with time I'll get quicker with the set up.
Finally got the time to hunt from my Podium. I've logged 20 hours from my Aero Hunter Kite and Podium combination so far this month. The Podium is a rock solid platform. My friends are using the Predator, but I find the Podium superior in design and stability. The safety bonus is I can't imagine any way for the Podium to break. Excellent product! I'll be buying another one for the grandkids to join me out on a limb.
Incredible product in my opinion way better than the predator platform hopefully soon I will be picking up ridge runner
The Podium is rock sold on the tree. I couldn't be more happy with this product and the craftsmanship is outstanding. I'm super impressed with the weight of it. I can't stop bragging about the product. Price point is great and weight is great. I'm super ready for hunting season to get here, just a couple more months. This is my second year saddle hunting and I'm glad I made the change form my DIY platform to the podium.
After receiving the Podium I quickly noticed how light weight it was. Also with it being 16” wide it’s HUGE!! It took a few tries to figure out how to cam it over but it was difficult. The teeth bite the tree very well. I was worried about how it would handle side pressure but I put all 260lbs on the side of the Podium. And to my surprise nothing happened. I think started to bounce on the side of the platform while attached to the tree with my saddle. Again, nothing happened. To say I’m impressed is an understatement. This is a great fit for anyone whether you’re a new or seasoned saddle hunter. Being an new saddle hunter I can say it will hell shorting the learning curve to shoot your weak side.
This is a great platform for the $ and weight. Highly recommended to me by friends. I would recommend it as well.
