    The binding has 28mm total travel(14mm forward and 14mm back) so if the smaller boot was mounted on the line originally, you’d be moving the heel...

    Correct, that’s why something is changing stance, balance etc here. Moving a mount forward(all things kept the same) will move weight forward...

    Awesome - thanks for the reply, Greg!!!
  2. The Koala is a little heavier than the Mana 2 but a similar flex pattern so it should be a bit more damp. The Mana 2 would still have a little more effective edge and a bit longer turn radius so should have a touch more grip and stability. The 21 CT 2.0 is the best of both worlds with the extra weight and damping but the Mana 2 is still the same great shape.

    I’d say either the 103 or Mana 2 would be good choices so depends on what one you can get the best deal on!

    Based on all your great posts I get the feeling you are a ski expert that might be able to help me out - if you have a few minutes of course! 😊

    I’m down to deciding between the Faction Mana 2 (CT 2) and the DPS Koala 103. I love to rip groomers and moguls, pop off small features and this will be my low tide ski. I have the Moment Wildcat as my pow ski (I love it).

    Based on all your write ups it sounds like the 2021 version of the Mana/CT2 would have been the best but I’m wondering if the current lighter version still holds up. I would also think about mounting it at either the “classic” line (-7CM) or the “progressive” line (-5CM) depending on your guidance.

    Not sure if you know anything about the Koala 103 but thought I would ask anyway.
