CKS -- Two new models are available in the Elite Blinds line. Both hub style blinds come in either Backland Adrenaline or Backland West Camo. The four-panel windows provide 360-degree viewing and removable shoot-through mesh, as well as panes that open and close independently. The Enforcer Elite measures 70x70x80 inches and weighs 17 pounds. At 59x59x67 inches, the Dispatcher Elite is otherwise identical in design, but weighs only 14 pounds.

With a brand-new lineup of fixed-position stands, Gorilla now offers three aluminum stands and four steel stands. In the aluminum group, the Silverback Magnum HX has a single post that attaches the level adjustable seat to the 24x30-inch platform. As with all of Gorilla's new hang-on stands, XT-6 nylon washers are used to minimize squeaking, and they all rely on cam action platforms to lock the stands in place.
The top-of-the-line steel stand is the King Kong Lounger HX. Equipped with a back and armrest, the stand weighs 21 pounds and has a 24x30-inch platform with a built-in footrest for comfort. To help offset tree lean, Gorilla's Extreme Leveling system allows you to level the stand in a wide range of trees. Call 810-733-6360 or go online to www.gorillastands.com.
