Even the most hardened gram fanatic can justify the weight of the lightweight Ortovox 200 Economic Avalanche Probe. However, this fly weight avi probe is not light on features. Very stiff 7075 T6 aluminum alloy keeps your aim true and the gradations on the segments indicate the depth of buried victim. The screw cap tensioning system is simple and foolproof, and the Kevlar pull line inside the pole keep the probe light and strong. For the money, there is no better probe on the market.
