5 5

I did quite a bit of research before purchasing this beacon. I took an AVY 1 class a few weeks back and we tested beacon range with others. It far exceeded the other manufactures that were also tested (tracker ortovox etc)

I was able to pick up the buried beacon in the test much sooner than the other rescuers

I realize that this doesn't help the person that is buried if they are carrying this beacon but thought I would throw in my two cents on the range with this unit. It definitely out performs the others in this category

I found it very easy to use and am very happy with it so far

Factor / Method / Radium

I am trying to decide between one of the three choices above. I have read many reviews on all the boots listed and it seems that they all have concerns regarding the narrow toe box. Does any one of the three have a wider toe box than the other? I have a wide foot and have been skiing on Scarpa Denalis for 6 years. Love the denalis for walking on rocks etc them but they are getting a little soft. My next boot will be primarily for backcountry that would hopefully be much stiffer than the denali. I am having trouble deciding between the three. Any input on the above three or alternate suggestions would be appreciated.
