The Maggots have been weighing skis for some time now. One of the biggest sources of ski weights were in grams per 100 cm of ski length. This made skis comparable among different sizes, but introduces some inaccuracies. Its also possible some of the weights in the current spreadsheet are in grams per 100 cm instead of total weight per ski. And, ski weight is a big deal when hiking and skinning.
Skis and bindings weigh absolutely nothing when you're standing or skiing on them. heluva is right.
Another point, if 8 ounces makes much difference to your performance of so called swing weight, or in air corrections, you must be in poor physical coindition.
Tip deflection and chatter is caused mostly by poor technique not related to ski and binding weight.
Weight only counts on the trip from the car to the lift, and while on the lifts and maybe for the jibbers who do mid air tricks, flips and such.
weight is bunk.
Necro-bump for weights. Saw this and thought it useful:
Uh, a ski that's used primarily for telemark skiing, with telemark bindings?
Yep, I know that nowadays, many folks like to slap telemark bindings on alpine stuff. But I also know that there are a lot of Eurotrash and a few weirdos on this side that seem to think telemark skiing should be done on gear from places like this: http://www.genuineguidegear.com/gear/bindings Go figure...
