"Love it!...Rock Solid...Reliable workhorse, must haves...The rubber grips on the Grip Arm handles are a nice touch, but the handles still feel a bit smaller than those on an equivalent Matthews grip arm."

"Love it....Love it!...Can always rely on Matthews!...It's not a turtle base stand like my Norm's one, but as a result it definitely feels more stable despite the fact that it's a bit top heavy (the Grip + Arm combo is a lot heavier than that of my Norm's stand."
