From the Editors of Freeskier:

Weighing in at just 7.5 ounces, the Stealth 260 Carbon probe is 10 millimeters in diameter and packs down to 42 centimeters long. Dangling cables are eliminated by replacing the traditional cable-pull with the Stealth Quick-Lock—a shaft that telescopes from the end and swiftly locks everything into place when time is of the essence.

The Pros: No dangling cable.
The Cons: Shaft doesn’t alternate colors for quick depth analysis.
