Light, packs well, an instant anchor in soft snow.I have modified my large MSR Snow Flute by removing the steel wire and replacing it with Marlows D12 Max 75 3mm Dyneema cord. I have suspended a 1200kg, (2600lb) weight from a single strand of this cord but it is not as durable so it will need replacing from time to time. The Large Snow now weighs 180g and packs much flatter. At the same time I lengthened the lead s to 1m, top lead, whilst maintain the same angle which may promote the flute to dive deeper. This is obviously not an MSR sanctioned modification but I have tested it, with a load cell, and am very happy with it’s performance. I hope MSR will investigate this option for future models.

Lightweight and effective!The MSR Snow Fluke is very lightweight with all those holes. Is also very effective, digging itself into the snow. I have used it as an anchor (together with a burried ice axe) to haul a friend out of a crevasse (only training). The best (and only) protection on steep snow slopes.
