Love this probe. I work as a full time patroler. We are required to do weekly drills and my last one was holding up great. Just bought 2 more. One to replace the one I lost, one for my second setup. I have had an issue with icing on the locking mechanisim. After use just make sure to dry. If your not packing at least a 300 cm you might as well be carring a pencil.
This probe is awesome - easy to use, lightweight, and fast to deploy. I highly recommend this probe for anyone looking for an easy to read, easy to operate probe. It deploys and engages very quickly when every second counts. The handle grip is awesome with or without gloves on. I can't say enough about this probe. Hats off to BD for making another amazing product.
When I received this new probe I quickly practiced using it. It is extremely easy to assemble in seconds and has a real solid feel. I also like the extra length and grip at the end. Hopefully I will never need to use this probe but it is good to know I have a solid piece of rescue equipment with me.
This is a great probe it deploys in a matter of second. You throw it out and pull, and its ready to go. I think this size of probe is the right size for a probe. It seems really sturdy when going through the snow in rescue scenarios. Great construction and it will last a long time.
This thing is so handy! its great for measuring total snowpack depth, or epic sword fights with your buddies. its especially nice for cutting rouche blocks. It is a bit heavy and its kinda big. But its also super burly and for me I'd rather carry the extra weight and be prepared for anything.
I purchased this probe last winter and have been very happy with it! I'm so glad I went with the longer length, as it's great for measuring total snow pack, but still light weight and super easy to use. It feels very sturdy once it's deployed and has a great grip on it.
Deploys fast, super rugged and locking mechanism is sweet. Might as well buy the longest probe you can, because who knows. Measurement markings make this probe super handy when doing pit profiles. Sling this puppy out and lock it up fast, no more lookin' like a chump during drills.
This probe is all it is hyped up to be. This thing is ready in under 5 second and its strong! Super impressed with this one just after some beacon training and I really like the markings that run throughout the entire length of the probe. Get this one!!
used this probe about 7 times while practising scenerios ina couple avy courses, nice length, and thickness doesnt deflect too much in chunky hardpack.
deploys quick and easy, i think it the inside laminated cord may detriorate quickly exposing the wire but we'll see.
This probe assembles super quick and fits nicely into my Agent pack. It is also lightweight, but solid probing through hard snow. The markings are also easy to read. This is an awesome probe that you won't be disappointed with.
