A lot of backcountry skiers opt for lighter avalanche gear, which is slightly scary because carbon probes will snap and aluminum ones will bend, but Ortovox's Probe Steel 320+ PFA will remain the same sturdy, robust probe, more or less. You could always test its steel-constructed strength by bearing your weight or driving over it, but if you're using it for practical snow study purposes like cutting blocks or probing for hidden beacons, then the Probe Steel 320+ PFA should last longer than you.
