How long is the included probe? Any opinions on how well it compares to carrying a separate probe?

Responded on

According to life-link.com, "Carbon Fiber lower shafts quickly screw together to form a highly effective avalanche probe pole." However, it doesn't specify anywhere how long they are. All recommendations I've seen online say it is not an effective probe regardless, and to stick with a longer probe, usually ranging from 8-10 feet.

Over tighten

Used the original ones.They look cool.But eventually the locking mechanism
over tightens and you can't adjust them.

Responded on

You need to periodically unscrew and remove the lower shaft completely and lubricate the slider inside the upper by spraying some silicone lube up inside it. Then replace the lower and work the locking slider up and down a few times. If it gets stuck all the way up cause you really jammed on it, soak the grip in boiling water and then pull it off using your feet. Remove the slider from the top, make sure it is properly aligned with the screw insert (a no-brainer, you'll see what I mean) and then lubricate everything and put it back together.

Great design!

Thank you for the removable straps, the powder baskets and a smooth running locking system that stays where I put it!

Functional and light

Skied these for three years, I have not had many malfunction problems as other reviwer has. I do check to make sure pole setting is locked down on every ski outing. Nice not to worry about carrying probe.

No issues

haven't had any issues with the lock. skied with these for three seasons with maybe 1 or 2 incedents. They were quickly corrected. Super light. nice not to have to carry a probe.

These Poles are Evil, EVIL!

I've had these poles for a few years, and when they work, they're fine, but, like their cousin the evil copier, they sense when you are having a good time and then malfunction at the worse possible moment: extend to full length in the middle of a mogul run, collapse when you're cruising along on the flat.

Look good...work well when they were working...(They just want to collapse)

Responded on

same deal for me. I finally couldn't take the release anymore. I got tired of fiddling with the mechanism all the time and returned them. Life-link makes great stuff, but this pole, not so much
