    • 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.

  1. Hi Drew, I’m wondering if you can compare and contrast the Katana with the Fischer Ranger 107 ti as that was one of your quiver picks, as they relate to your riding style.
