    Default Need advice on Avy Probe

    Okay, I keep thinking when the right one comes up I'll get it- but I need to just get one and could use everyone's advice, here's what I want

    #1: The probe MUST be almost unbreakable-not so much worried about light weight
    #2: the purchase of it must support the snowmobile community, not the anti-snowmobile community
    #3: must fit in my klim backpack side pouch
    #4: I'd like the longest one I can get

    What's all my options?

    I have a Voile aluminum but not sure if they meet your not anti snowmobile catagory. I bought it on a whim for 8 bucks.
    Ben I like the ones that don't have to be used!

    When the Sierra club told me to "be more green". I thought they meant to buy another Arctic Cat.

    I currently carry the BCA Carbon 340 and really like it. And OG carries the Carbon 260. Very nice probes, very fast to deploy.
    Since this is for zookie, I would probably look into a steel or titanium one as you are a bit hard on equipment.

    Did someone say Bacon?
