Long enough for deep snowpack, the Black Diamond QuickDraw Super Tour 265 has the best length-to-weight ratio of any probe available. The cable and locking mechanism are housed internally so there are no buttons to accidentally collapse the probe, allowing even the top section to be used.

Black Diamond Quickdraw Super Tour Probe 265 Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

On the east coast a 265cm seems sufficient for our wicked deep snowpack.
The probe is light enough and easy enough to access, even if you leave it in the bag for the tour. It'll deploy quickly and effortlessly for a timely search.
Also works well for looking for hidden crevasses and other unseen threats.
Could go with a higher end carbon or a longer probe, but the justification isn't always there. The weight is fine on this. The length works for up to the deepest burials.

Good Product; so far

The QuickDraw 265 is certainly easy to use and locks well. It's not the lightest probe I've handled but it's light enough for day touring.

My one concern: during a recent avy course, a fellow student bent their BD QuickDraw during some simulated companion rescue. It did appear they had it locked correctly. The probe seem to just buckle while probing a snow bank (potentially similar to avy deposit).

Luckily, I've never been called upon to use this in a critical situation, but this probe packs down and stores well and assembles easily. During trials at the local beacon training course it works fine and seems structurally sound.

The Ging at on 09/23/2011

I have yet to use this in the backcountry thankfully, but in practicing with it I have appreciated how quickly the probe assembles, the quickdraw aspect allows you to have the entire probe put together in mere seconds.

Alexa Shaw at on 01/30/2013

A great purchase for the price. No need for a carbon probe, unless you are super weight conscious. This gets the job done, doesn't get stuck even after repeated use. Very easy to break down and store.

Ethan P Fischer at on 04/17/2013

This is a great everyday backcountry probe, it's what I keep for all my backcountry kits. It's obviously not as light as the carbon version, but still super reasonable, as well as quick and easy to assemble.

Angel Collinson at on 02/09/2012

Probe is a good length (longer than most, but not too long). It has 5cm marks to measure snow depth. I really like the grip at the base for no slip when erecting it.

Lucy Call at on 01/02/2014

Always strange reviewing gear you hope never to have to use...
However, it's well made, reasonably light, and goes together quickly and easily. You could pay double plus for another probe, but really, why??

Right length and snaps together in a second with the draw cable. Used the 265 probe in a Feb 2012 avalanche awareness class, and it was ideal for the field day.

This probe is very solid and does what it is supposed to do. Very easy to assemble. A little harder to disassemble. Excellent product that should last a long time.

Negative Reviews:

My husband almost cut off two fingers last night disassembling this product. After you extend it, its difficult to unassemble. The top section has an opening and when you are trying to collapse it, if you get your fingers near it, it will suddenly close and take a piece of your fingers with it. Very dangerous, not recommended.

Neutral Reviews:

Overall, this is a pretty good probe for the price. I don't think I'll be breaking it anytime soon. The design could definitely be tweaked to make it easier to disassemble though. When you have gloves on, breaking down the probe simply doesn't work very well. If BD were to use a design like the BCA probes use, it would make it more user-friendly when you have gloves on.
One thing to note is that BD should get rid of the sandpaper grip thing and use some of the gummy grip like they put on the Traverse poles. Currently, the grip wears away the numbers making it harder to use the probe for snow study.
