I keep waffling back and forth on what I want. I consulted this chart, and it seems like the BD Stigma (in the 182) weighs 7 pounds 9 oz. Also on the EMS website (for $100 more) is this nice looking ski:
Movement Freeheel, made in Switzerland, and asymmetrical. It weighs 7 pounds, 5 oz. in the 176. But that puts me up around $400, and if I'm going to spend $400 on those, shouldn't I just spend $375 for the Atomic RT 86 on Telemarkdown.com (feather light 6.5 pounds in the 183)? I'm leaning towards the RT 86 at this point, especially if I can get it at that price, with the Voile Switchback bindings (which they don't have on Telemarkdown . . . I guess I'll miss out on the free mounting). It's a good thing that nobody reads this blog. I think the RT 86's will sell out pretty quick at this price.
