Article Summary:Black Diamond is making significant changes in both look and engineering to their avalanche shovel product line. The most significant feature of the two new models (the fixed length Deploy and extendible handle Transfer) and two blade sizes (denoted by a "3" and "7" in the product name) is a handle that fully retracts into the contours of the shovel blade, simplifying storage in the pack (no longer does your shovel handle stick up above your pack's headline; or, stow the handle and blade separately).
