The Super Tour by Black Diamond blends lightweight yet strong construction with a long length for versatile, backcountry use. Seven oversized aluminum tubes mesh together instantly with our new speed cone ferrules to create a tough, smooth outer surface that cuts cleanly through welded snow. We redesigned our proven QuickDraw system to assemble the probe completely in the time it takes to toss it from its bag into the air. Other features include markings in five-centimeter increments for depth readings and a non-slip grip.

This is one nice pea shooter!The manufacturer's claims are all right on. The over sized tubing does mean this probe takes up SLIGHTLY more room in your pack, but it also means it's nice and rigid when deployed... No wet noodle like some I've seen. Probe length can always be debated, but this one is long enough to make me feel like a responsible ski partner, and also long enough to trade with my buddy if he shows up with some chopstick-length probe.
