Solid probe, but heavy

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I guess reviews are different for everyone. Whitezombie calls the probe super light, but I feel it's like a brick in my pack. But aluminum vs carbon- if you want lighter go carbon. This probe is durable, very easy to assemble and I love the T-handle tightener. It makes assembling the probe a snap with gloves on. The markings are etched on the side and the ends are tapered male/female so they slide together nicely when pulling the cable in a hurry.

If you want a solid, durable and colorful probe- get this one. If you're a weight weeny, look elsewhere.

Are the measurements printed or etched?

They look printed on mine, but I don't have a definitive answer either way.


Super light!

    I bought this probe to go with my Ortovox shovel and it is top notch. While thankfully I haven't had to use it in a real emergency yet, I have tried it out in the snow. The quick assembly systems really is quick: just throw, pull the cord and voila! Different colored sections help distinguish just how deep your buddy is under the snow, which is useful. Oh, and it's really light considering how long it is. The only thing is that a 3.20m probe is probably overkill, so if you want something cheaper, go for a 2.80m.
