Luke Koppa & Dylan Wood review the DPS Pagoda Tour 100 RP for BLISTER

Luke Koppa reviews the Wagner Summit 97 for Blister

2021-2022 Wagner Summit 97

Historically, Wagner has only offered fully custom skis. But last year they made four models for the Blister Summit, and those Summit skis are now available as stock, “factory” options. The Summit 97 is their take on a versatile and stable all-mountain ski, and we think it is an excellent execution of that concept. Check out our full review & Deep Dive comparisons.

Dylan Wood and Luke Koppa review the Sego Comp 110 for Blister

2021-2022 Sego Comp 110

The Sego Comp 110 seems like a pretty niche ski — it was designed for freeride skiers who need to ski fast and go big, and also throw tricks. But after a season on it, we think its rare blend of traits could be appealing to many skiers — not just those on the competition circuit. Check out our full review & Deep Dive comparisons.
