Granted, I've never had another probe, but I love this one. I went with this one to keep the weight down (even though it's only a bit lighter than other BD probes), but it has worked well in searches, both practice and otherwise. The quick pull trigger works well if you practice a few times with it... fling it out and pull basically. It has proven strong as well.
Very light, and a decent length for here in the East. Kept this on my pack for Mt. Washington, and haven't had to use it yet, but for practicing, its awesome. Very easy to deploy, and the bag it comes in is great to make the probe very accessible.
