50lbs of weight is a *big* difference to me. Corky Bell once told me that one of the fastest ways to increase power is to decrease weight, and that's something that I take into consideration in every build I've worked on. And yeah, there are people that don't view it as that big of a deal, especially when you consider that you're off-setting that weight w/add'l power, but 50lbs is 50lbs, especially given that the M3 isn't exactly light.
I am *really* keen to find out how much each of the manis weigh, although I'm sure that's a subject for a new thread.
