Hi all, I am a new member and have been reading the forums quite a bit as I am in the process of upgrading ski's and boots. This forum has been a great resource and I thank you all. I injured my left knee a few years ago and experience quite a bit of pain when I ride on chair lifts without foot rests. I went to a Dr. and he hooked me up with a knee brace to help me with this problem but I have not tried it yet, so I am not sure how it will work. I have narrowed my ski search down to the RX8 and the Metron B5. I have skied the B5 173 about 5 runs and loved the stability and carving. I have not skied the RX8 but it sounds like the best carver next to the B5. If I purchase the B5 it will be a 162 and the Fisher would be a 165. The only thing holding me back from the B5 is the weight. Does anybody know the differences between these skis weights with bindings? Thank you for your help.
