From the Editors of Freeskier:

Dyneema cord—eight times lighter and 15 times stronger than steel wire— is attached to a tab that deploys this seven-piece aluminum probe quickly and efficiently. The 280-centimeter probe measures 44 centimeters when packed up and weighs just 7.4 ounces.

The Pros: Lightweight.
The Cons: Deployment mechanism could use a better grip.
