yeah this thread bombed. Glad the new trackers are sweet, hope we're all safe this winter, and know where to get cheaper good gear. Stupid to bicker, I was a little cooped up yesterday.

so to assuage your worries, BCA has decided not to release the tracker 2 until next year, not enough testing, and also a marketing thing. So hope this helps and BSOE and todd are both right, but to add to it, know what the hell you are doing and never base decisions on how you feel about the snowpack, only go with raw data and observations

I have a older tracker and it works great, I also have an m2 that is pretty good if you know how to use it.

Glad to see companies are making a push for better BC technology.

I did have a friend pass at Snowmass last year in a freak inbounds (read: GRAY AREA inside the ski area boundary) slide. Still throws me for a loop every now and then. (miss you buddy). Smallish slide that pushed him into a tree.

What I am saying is be careful out there. Know your friends and their abilities and watch each others backs.

I've owned the Pieps DSP for a couple years now and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a new beacon. This beacon has three antennas and the ability to flag or eliminate a signal once a victim has been pin pointed, which is huge in the event that one encounters a multiple burial situation (which of course involves another party since you're smart and skiing one at a time). I know that the new Barryvox has this feature and I would think that the new Tracker will as well. If you by chance work at a shop that buys products from Liberty Mountain Sports, which is a huge gear distributor, I think the "pro" deal on the Pieps DSP is around 200 bucks, which is about half the retail price, which is quite a bit less than the pro deal for the other high end beacons.
