I have one of each for tenor and prefer the Metalite. For Bari, I think I would go with the Graftonite. It can have a bit less edge but also should be a bit more responsive. Given your budget, I think the Metalite may be a tad too expensive. Shop ebay, the internet and don't forget Amazon. I got one of my tenor Grafs for $14 shipped there.
