Default Arva?

So my buddy in the Army gets a proform with Arva this year (used to be BCA). I've been thinking of picking up a new beacon and was going to use his proform, but I don't know much about Arva. Anyone had experience with them? The Pro beacon looks pretty sweet.....

ARVA has been around forever. They have a strong presence in the Euro market, but it seems like every attempt in the US market fizzles out after a few years. I have an ARVA Evolution beacon from 2001 that I used for years. It was my bury and find beacon the last few seasons, but it finally crapped out on me. I definitely got my use out of it.

Generally speaking they have a super fast processor, easy to use, and durable. Should be a fine beacon for you.

Good deal.....I'll have to see if what sort of discount he gets on the beacons and pick one up.

Picked up an Evo 3+ before last season and don't regret it. Nice clear display and easy to use, zero hiccups.

The Evo 3+ is a bit bulky, but comparable to others in that price range and suits my needs fine. Don't have experience with higher end models but I do have confidence in the brand. I was a bit weary at first because I hadn't heard of them but as killclimbz says, they are apparently pretty big across the pond.
