As the most-versatile probe in the Black Diamond line, the QuickDraw Super Tour Probe 265 has become a favorite of backcountry skiers everywhere. Its tapered ferrel design lets you set up this probe with a single pull. No wasted time inserting sections or screwing down an end cap. Black Diamond gave the QuickDraw Super Tour Probe 265 markings every five centimeters to help with accurate snow pit evaluations.

Perfect length for the Eastern States

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Unless it's an El Niño year, we're lucky to get any significant dumps to need a probe. However, it is always with me, and provides peace of mind. The length is appropriate for snow depths while slide skiing in the Adirondacks. I hope I never have to use it for an emergency. Great tool, works well during practice, strong, light, Black Diamond delivers.

it probes!

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I've only used it in practice. Deploys fast, probes well in wet coast thick snow here in the coastal BC mountains. I've had no problems with set-up or take-down. I'm glad I have it and hope I never have to use it in real life.

Simple and Reliable

Great probe for the money. It's not the longest or the lightest on the market but it's good enough in both categories and the durability seems bomb-proof. Highly recommended.

Simple and quick

I have yet to use this in the backcountry thankfully, but in practicing with it I have appreciated how quickly the probe assembles, the quickdraw aspect allows you to have the entire probe put together in mere seconds.

Dangerous product

    My husband almost cut off two fingers last night disassembling this product. After you extend it, its difficult to unassemble. The top section has an opening and when you are trying to collapse it, if you get your fingers near it, it will suddenly close and take a piece of your fingers with it. Very dangerous, not recommended.

    I'm interested in an alternate use for this probe. Is the tip threaded in, so it can be removed and replaced with something else?

    Thanks
