    • Hey Eric,
      I haven’t had a chance to ski the Dynastar M-Pro 105, but put simply, the Katana feels much livelier in bumps and groomers than the Monster 108, and isn’t quite as damp at higher speeds; the Cochise is much easier to pivot in tight terrain/bumps, but lacks the rebound and energy of the M108 and Katana when carving.
