I wasn't able to weigh a 180 Bushwacker as they're all out on peoples feet. I have weights for the 173 Bushwacker as well as the 180 and 187 Bonafide
173 Bushwacker 7lbs .5oz per pair or 3189 grams
180 Bonafide 9lbs or 4108 grams
187 Bonafide 9lbs 8 oz or 4309grams
All of the Freemountain skis have the same core. It is a very lightweight core similar to what Dynafit uses with stringers of different woods and hybrid materials.
The Bushwacker differs in that it only has one small sheet of metal under the binding for mounting purposes. It is very light for an alpine ski. The Bonafide is
definitely heavier as you add two sheet of metal plus the extra sheet for increased screw retention but for a ski with 2.25 sheets of metal it's relatively light.
They would make great touring skis. Plus these are not twin tips so it's easier to attach skis to the tail and have them stay on.
All of the Freemountain skis are considerably lighter than the Titan series. The core on all the Titan series skis was a lot heavier and the IQ system adds weight to the ski as well. I think when it comes to touring it depends on what exactly you're looking for. If you're really looking for a lightweight setup the bushwacker would not be a bad option and I can pretty much guarantee you'd be hard pressed to find that much hard snow/in bounds performance out of any similar light weight touring ski. If touring for you is more about the downhill experience the rest of the freemountain line would be great for touring, especially if you like the feeling of metal in your skis. It would be hard to find comparable skis with two sheets of metal in this weight range. The fact that the tails are flat on all these skis aids in skin retention as well.
Well I stand completely and utterly corrected. Thanks for the good info.
