Please note, this article is an “opinion” to not buy the Pieps DSP – we just like you (our readers) and want you to be as safe as possible. It would go against our ethics to tell you to buy a safety device that is subpar to its competitors. In the market for a transceiver? Check out the Mammut Barryvox or BCA Tracker.
Bottom line at the top: don’t buy a Pieps DSP.
We’re usually not so opinionated on gear – I mean we like what we like, but rarely will you see us saying “don’t buy this” but a transceiver that’s not reliable is something we’re passionate about saying “don’t buy.” While you’ll see in the post below from the manufacture it reaches “certification standard” – the truth is, it wears out prematurely comparatively to other opinions. We have a lot to say, but we’ll let the pro’s do the talking, scroll on.
If you haven’t read Nick McNutt’s story by Christina Lusti, check out the post below and watch the events unfold in the new TGR film. Make note that this isn’t the only case of the transceiver wearing out in our opinion “prematurely” – there have been multiple fatalities because of this device wearing out prematurely. If you own one, replace it, if you’re in the market for a transceiver, don’t buy one that will wear out – it’s your life on the line here.
