      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

BCA Tracker 2 best price

Recommended Posts

I think this is the season I'll finally buy my own beacon. I have almost exclusively borrowed or rented the Tracker 2 when I needed a beacon, and I'm pretty convinced this is the make/model I want.

 

I have some time before I need one and I'm ready to wait it out for a good sale this fall. What would be a good sale price for a new Tracker 2?

Below $240. Maybe a bit less with the tracker 3 coming out.

 

Rei 20% off coupons have worked on avi beacons in past years though you may have to convince the staff to check as PLBs are usually not included. There are some other brand beacons on sierra trading post right now too.

if you want the best deal going in beacons right now get this one. Way better than the tracker in my opinion. Easier to use and more accurate. Offer them $90... I got one last year for that.

A group of us tested several beacons last winter in the Wallowas while on a BC trip. Buried - the Tracker II came out on top for precision and range - besting the Orthtovox S1.
