Anybody have any +/- on either the G3 320 Professional or the BCA SR3 probe? Assuming they are both damn near the same thing, but wanted to get some quick input. Kthxbye.

If you want to impress your engineerd friends, definitely get the iprobe. It's amazing that it supposedly has a total/electrical probing depth of 5m. I dorked around with one in a busy indoor extravaganza and it was neat, but it would be far more informative to practice with it out on a slope and see if it's helpful.

The other two probes are good heavy patroller type probes. Having a decidedly bad engineering/math brain myself I really like the markings every cm for pit work, which I think the bca has.

Ive got the G3.
Can't complain about the quality, but If I had to buy again I would get something smaller than 320.
A couple of times, Ive caught myself getting lazy and not pulling it out (tree wells, gullies, creek crossings etc..) just because the extra length is cumbersome.
