The snowpack was fat last year for sure and I am a firm believer I would rather have over kill if I was trying to find someone in case there was a really deep burial.
Wow based on the reviews it seems to be a popular probe and it's priced right, would be cool if it had the alternate segment colors like the G3 poles but not really necessary I guess.

Unless someone comes up with something better I think I'll make an appearance at the backcountry storefront so I can just pick it up in person, or order online and then do in store pickup or whatever.
