Rossi Bandit B94 Respect vs. Sickbird WRS
I'm looking for some advice/info on these two skis. The B94 Respect is a stripped down B94 (122/94/112, 8.4 lbs), while the Sickbird is from the tele line (128/98/121, 8.4 lbs). Other than the graphic, has the Sickbird changed this year?
Outside magazine is the only place I found any review of the B94, as well as the Sickbird WRS. I'm looking for some more in depth info on the differences in construction, etc...
This will be my backcountry/sidecountry/powder ski ... Fairly aggressive skiier, but can't say that I ride it switch into the road too oftenEveryone needs to believe in something. I believe I will have another beer!

I'm skiing the B94[actually the B3, but the dims are the same, not sure about the weight or construction.]. I love 'em. Predictable as hell.The blues has always been about taking your problems and turning them into something you can dance to, drink to and fuck to.
We're certainly not a blues band in any kind of purest sense, but to me Rock and Roll has always had it's roots in that tradition.

The Respect has no metal. It's got a carbon wrap instead, makes it soft, but poppy. The Sickbird is built like a scratch with similar dimensions to the b94, but with a twin. Do you need the rubber tip and tail? do you need a shorter effective edge and a twin?
I think the SB is wood core, though. The b94 will be polyurethane.No longer stuck.

I ended up going with the Sickbird in 185 based on what I knew about it from years past. I figured the Respect was just a softer B94 (no metal, etc), like the SB was for the B4 about 3(?) years ago. I don't necessarily 'need' the twin, but it makes the 185 a bit more manageable for me. Besides, the SB looks much *sicker* and an extra 4mm underfoot won't hurt
I haven't skied em yet, due to a new job, and the fact that they're in Idaho - but next week should be fun.Everyone needs to believe in something. I believe I will have another beer!
