Pair of skis have different weights

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I just recently received a new pair of Blizzard Bonafides that I ordered online.  When they arrived, I put them on a scale to see how the weight compared to other skis that I already have.  During the course of this, I came to find that the right ski weights 33 grams more than the left ski.  All of my other pairs of skis have matching weights.  Should I be concerned?  Has anyone else seen this before?

Do the numbers on the skis match?

The numbers match.

You realize that's a 1-2% weight difference between skis (assuming ~4lb per ski). After bindings and boots you're probably looking at .5% or less. There's probably more weight in snow between your boot and bindings after one turn. Just saying.

33 grams only matters if we're talking about cocaine.

Tell that to someone shopping for A/T bindings.  It's a little over an ounce right?

IIRC, the Blistergear guys, who weigh each pair of skis they put through their tests, said that only Kastle and Volkl had minimal (<= 5 grams) weight difference.

Don't worry about 33 grams lol. Like mentioned above, it's only about 2%, that's an expected margin of weight difference in a ski thats 4+ lbs each.
