    Yes you definitely need one. Peace of mind for family too

    Thereíll be several threads on here about them but Iím confident youíll find CooeeBay (something like that) on here has the smallest and sharpest price. And donít be phased heís an Aussie. Everything works here just fine.

    A NZ registered KTI from Skippers Mate in Aussie. Great price, product and service. $300-325 to you door. 10 year battery life. Dumb if you don't have one at that price.

    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    I got a kti as a gift. It was bought from Australia, and I think that was the cheapest place.

    Skippersmate, remember to register it and keep that info up to date. $300ish for 10 years is pretty cheap.

    The wife made me get one two years ago, a good piece of mind especially solo hunting.

    Doesn't work as a plb as such, it runs on a different system, I have one, and also carry a plb because I don't trust the inreach to be 100% reliable

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    Thatís the one Iíve been looking at because it has a 10 year battery , just donít want to end up upgrading to somthing better if there is a chance to just buy the right thing now , suppose itís hard because you donít use it till you need it
