Everytime i have skied 6 straight days 4-5 hours a day, I have been wtired too. this is before I owned the B5.

It didn't matter what ski I was on.

the B5 takes so little effort. Ya just tip it and go, I don't think it is the ski!

I think Exhausted is the better word... Over my holiday break when I worked all but 2 days (out of 3 weeks) my day consisted of this...

5:00 - Wake up, get breakfast, shower, etc..
6:30 - Leave for Canaan
8:00 - Arrive at Canaan
Work all day.. maybe get a break from 11:30-12:30... Maybe...
4:00 - Leave Canaan
5:30 - Get home, eat dinner, etc..
7:00 - Go to sleep.. couldn't stay awake any longer

As far as 6 days in a row, 4-5 hours a day freeskiing, I could likely handle it without too much isssue..

I think if I hit the bar two or three times a day (for an hour plus), I'd be a bit "tired" myself.

I think I remember you reading you liked some of the other Metrons.

I do. My father in law has some M9's. My son has some M10's. I had M11's then got some M11 B5's. All of these skis I liked better than the B5. The B5 is too heavy, too stiff and too turny.

Have your alignment checked re your forward lean angle/binding delta angle as if that's wrong it increases fatigue, as does an incorrect binding position. One of the benefits of the Neox bindings on the B5 is the ability to play around with the fore/aft balance. If your binding position is 'out' for you then you'll be relying on muscle power to stay in balance. Look for a store that offers a Campbell Balancing service.

I GET TIRED ON MY mb5'S FROM HAVING TO PASS OTHER SKIERS ALL DAY!

After reading your schedule, don't bother with your alignment or binding position check with AA.

Yeah, I was wondering about all those bar visits too. Are you an alcoholic with a skiing problem?

JUST KIDDING, of course.

MB:5's take some oomph. Prior to having my boots foamed, I was planning to sell mine. My quads were getting tired.

Once I foamed the boots, the foot-to-edge action was immediate, and I no longer get tired. Just tip and rip.

The B:5's demand attention. If I want to cruise, I take out the M:EX's or the M:9's (less side cut).

It's good to have at least one pair of skis that'll let you snooze a bit.
