While a 2 antenna system like the BCA Tracker DTS or Ortovox D2 will work, a 3 antenna is much better. Evo and Backcountry have the BCA Tracker 2 on sale for around 20% off right now. I just picked it up.

Def want a metal shovel. Some have ovalized or rectangular handles for strength and faster deployment. Some extend longer if you want that. Sounds like a T handle is better than a D-handle, and I wouldn't want a directional one like on the Ortovox Beast, in case I want to switch hands. For a probe, longer is better. That's what she said. Since the difference in price is so small, I went with a 300cm. Seems like most are in the 240-260cm range, while you even see some short 200cm ones.
