In that case, I haven't seen enough pics/reviews to say for sure, Ricky. I hope that isn't because the show was really that dead this year, but usually by now I've spotted at least something that has held my interest.

I need to stop in and ask Bill (local shop owner) if he went to that or the Mathews show and what he thought. (I was offered a pass to the Mathews show, but too close to the date to pull it together. :( ) If he did and got any catalogs or anything I'll see about getting pics/scans 'cause so far I just haven't seen much of anything in the way of product. :shrug:

yeah I saw those chairs from last year's show and I made an inquiry to the manufacturer and it was just under 2 bills for it. They lost me if it was $100. I might pay $50 if I thought I'd get a whole lot of use out of it but what I use now runs under $25 and I can sit in it for several hours.

I'm pretty happy with my 5 gallon bucket and spinner seat. :D I am in the market for something with a back rest though.

Those tri-pod style seats always change the pitch of my voice anyways. :blink: :doh: I tried an Ameristep seat one time that is similar to the one pictures in this thread, minus the back rest. Never again. :curse:

I know what you're saying about triangular seats, Matt. :doh2:
I had always thought it was a problem because of my size.
Now, I guess I'll have to rethink... :hmm:

As to the money... I've been sitting on a bucket for deer/rifle hunting for probably the past 15 years (up against a tree usually) and it just doesn't "get it" for me anymore. The biggest pain in the butt (aside from the literal pain in my butt!) is uneven ground. Adjustable leg length really seems like the ticket. $200 is absolute insanity, but I guess I should at least be comfortable (assuming it's indeed comfortable - don't know yet) when I'm sitting in my $400 blind holding my $1000 bow. :doh2: :lol:
