Does this thing suck

Does this thing suck

It only has a range of up to 100 meters so don't buy it if you plan on actually getting caught in an avalanche because they wont find you. Other than that its cheap as shit and it gets you into the backcountry. This thing is really small so it doesn't impair your riding but I wouldn't buy it for more than $120

no one plans on getting caught in an avalanche but survival is the purpose of these beacons so it seems pointless to buy this... honestly.. i would not want to be buried (or looking for my best mate) wishing over and over again that id spent a bit more for the best quality transponder i could afford... if your really short of the cash maybe stay out of the back country for another couple of weeks and work a few extra shifts
