I’m in the market for a few ladder stands. All my current ladders are the Walmart doubles(very uncomfortable to me), and I’ve never been in a Millennium or Game Winner. Looks like I can get the Game Winner singles for about half the price of the Millenniums. So my question is are the Millenniums that much better? I don’t have a problem paying extra for a good product but I’m not really into wasting money just so I can have a name brand.

Millenniums are very comfortable and hold up well in my experience. I will say that the Walmart Big Game Envoys have a Millennium "like" seat and are only $118.

If you want comfort, the sling style seats like the millennium stands have CANNOT be beat. There are several on the market with this style seat, big game, muddy, etc, and they are much less than the millennium stands. Do some research and you can find what you like.

If they still make them, a Family Tradition is the best ladder stands ever built. Hands done, nothing even came close.

X Stand The Duke 21' has the best tree attachment system, just as good as millennium also cheaper. Hawk - Big Denali also 21' I believe it's man
and a half stand. Hawk has as good a seat as any on the market. But between game winner and millennium
I'd give millennium the nod,but would buy two game winners instead of millennium. If that makes sense.

Only problem with the millenniums is you might fall asleep in them.

Agree. Their stands are top quality and super comfortable. But prices went sky high after they moved from FL to MN years ago. Freight is the deal breaker and they can't compete down here. So, Millennium is my go-to stand now. Not as heavy duty as Family Traditions but the Millennium is still well made and the sling seat is comfy.

Hawk is same quality as Millenium and has a bit more room. I have blind chairs from both companies, and bought the Hawk stand.

Family Tradition stands are built like a tank, but they are VERY pricey, like WB said. The hawk stands mentioned above are very nice and the safety of the attachment system is great.

I’d have a hawk before a millennium and a millennium before a game winner. Those cheap stands are exactly that. I’m not knocking anyone that uses them heck I still have some but I hate em. I’ll pay the extra and get quality. Muddy, hawk, millennium, x-stand. Those would be my first choices.
Family traditions stands are amazing and very well built but they priced themselves out of it for me.

Get ready to devote about 3 hours to put it together if it's anything like the 2 man. That's an aggravating SOB

I've got a couple of the 1-man version. I'd say 2 hours, it's not the quickest thing I've ever done.

I have a couple of the game winner ladder stands from academy that are extremely comfortable. You can sit all day. $119 each. I also have a couple of the game winner loc-ons that also are all day stands. $69 each. I refuse to pay for the melleniums. My stands stay up 24/7/365.

It took me a lot of contemplating to convince myself ( actually my wife ) that I needed a millennium, but finally my wife bought me a M150 monster. It was the best 257.00 that I have ever spent on hunting, it is super comfortable. After my wife hunted in it, she decided we need more. I recommend the millennium if your budget allows.

Hunted out of Millenniums in the past. Put together my first Game Winner yesterday and set it up. Bought 4 at end of last season for half price... As far as comfort it is about the same as the Millenium in my opinion. There are a few other differences in the ladder portion but when buying several I could not justify the difference. I guess if I was just purchasing one it might be different.

Those are not bad but the platform is tiny. Ok for me but I get leery when I have my kids with me. Comfortable sitting though.
