Here's what other sites are saying:
You pray that you never need to use your avy gear, but when the worst-case scenario comes to life, you need equipment you can rely on. The Pieps Carbon Tour 220 Probe is made with carbon fiber, so it's light enough that you won't even notice it in your pack yet strong enough to rely on when the time comes to use it. Speed cones and a ratcheting locking latch allows you to assemble the probe with a single throw and pull so you don't waste a second of precious time, and a metric measuring scale indicates the exact burial depth so you can act accordingly.
Quick-closing latch for efficient assembly of the probe. Special coating for perfect grip even with gloves. Depth measurements on the probe to estimate burial depth. Special speed-cone for quick assembly.
