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.

I was looking at the same shovel and been kinda weary about those reviews too. I think I'm leaning toward the Black Diamond Transfer 7 (Black Diamond Transfer 7 Shovel from Backcountry.com), which actually looks like it has a longer handle than the BCA one.

linvillegorge I separate my shovel blade from the handle when I pack it. I also use the Dakine Heli Pro and that's the only way my shovel fits.

Zee Good setup! I wanted a Tracker 2 back in '08, it was on the MEC website and I ordered it, but they never did get it in until late last season... I ended up with a Pieps DSP.

read this for a laugh...

My son wants to do the dive next season, so I'll probably pick up either the Ortovox 3+, the Tracker 2 or the Arva 3 Axes for him.
