    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Great light weight and durable probe. Very ease of use when needed to probe. Great addition to have in the back country.

    Good for probing

      The perfect option. If you are a gram counter, you will already know you want a carbon probe. If you aren't, just get this one. It packs up nice, assembles easily, and does not come apart when probing. Not much else to ask for.
