One thing ladder stand hunters constantly contend with is the instability of the ladder stand during the initial climb to affix the top ratchet straps. One false move and ordinary ladder stands can spin out, leaving the hunter grasping for safety. The Leverage Outcast is anything but ordinary. The Leverage Outcast features an exclusive telescoping design which makes the ladder compact, easy to put up and adjustable in height. But what really separates Outcast is its Outrigger Stability System arms, which are deployed and strapped down from the ground prior to climbing. When you finally ascend the ladder to affix the straps, IT WON'T MOVE!
