OK. Seems like most of us can agree to agree. Lightweight skis are desirable for skinning uphill. My knees would certainly notice the weight of my Super Gs or my Volants, if I could afford to go out and buy some AT gear. Heavy skis are desirable for DH-type skiing. There is no way I would prefer to ski any of those light touring skis at high speed.
Thanks for providing the information. It's too bad the manufacturer's don't list more data in their marketing material.
We have a website here, a spreadsheet there, a thread here and another thread there. We need one all-encompassing spreadsheet that can be shared, as in update-able by all members, so new data can be added to it.
BTW, the AT and touring market may be a tiny piece of the pie, but it's still there.
