I just looked at both the Transfer 3 and 7 at REI and decided the 7's blade is waaaaaay too big. Transfer 3 it is. They also had the BCA one that you bought and gotta say the Black Diamond pieces feel like a much higher quality piece. The Ortovox one they had seemed even more solid, but weighed a bit more.
