- Q & A
Buying a probe is like buying a bra for your wife. I take that back.. I actually know what size to get her.
This is a 240cm length.. So just under 8 feet by an inch and a half.
Do you need a longer one? Of course every man wants a longer one, but you are dealt what you got , so use it.
I not only wanted a probe for probing my friends but for probing for crevasses. If I was backcountry touring or out of bounds skiing I might opt for a longer probe.
A 280 is only 15 inches longer. If I am the one getting probed I might prefer a shorter length.
The Mammut probe is very nice and it is green. So yes, my probe is green and it isn't the longest probe out there.
And as the old saying goes.. " It's not the length of your probe that matters.. It's how you use it" .
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Solid build very quick to assemble and life time warranty what more can you ask for?
