light as probe

    this is the best probe ever its as heavy as a i phone and takes all of 2 seconds to unfold and pull the cord that puts it all in to place its strong as u can have crash after crash on it and it won't bend like steel and its so compact. get this probe u wont regret it . 5 stars


    Very Light & Very Effective

      Very light, sufficiently long, sufficiently stiff, and assembles with a single pull.


      Nice Probe.

        I have never had to use this (fortunately), but it is worth the money. It is well made, sturdy and extremely light. So easy to assemble and disassemble.


        Good piece of equipment

          Hard to go wrong with this Probe. Nice and light with a great handle, but hopefully I'll never need to use it.


          Worth the extra few bucks..

            Very quick set up when seconds count. Durable, and super light for a probe; in situations when ounces matter. I feel it was worth the extra coin.


            Nice probe

              For a piece of equipment that I hope never to use for real, I sure train with this a lot. It's function is smooth and reliable, and light weight to keep pack weight down. The real deciding factor for me was the longer warranty period that Ortovox offers, especially for a carbon probe.
