    I say pull the trigger... I'm sure you wont regret it... And let me know what you think once you have some time on snow. I'm sure it'll be next season but keep me posted.

    Cheers

    Shorty_J,

    Another option for you regarding mounting point, would be to find an old Marker Schizo binding. This would give you the ability to adjust your binding position up-to 3cm fore/aft. Giving...

    Check with Troy at The Quest in Fernie. He was selling his Demo's at the end of the season and I'm pretty sure he had a pair of 177 left.

    I have about 50 days on my K108 and can honestly say that I NEVER find them hooky in any conditions. Perhaps this comes down to ski style? But for me, the K108 is the most stable ski I have ever...

    I have totally simplified my quiver, now that I have the K108.

    Over the holidays, I skied 19 days in a row. I was using the K108 everyday, except one. Conditions were brutal, so I took my M5 out...

    BC's Premier John Horgan said yesterday that he wants to shut down provincial borders. I wonder how ski hills that rely heavily on Alberta skiers will survive?

    I'm not in CO but similar terrain. I ski out of Fernie BC. My perfect quiver would be the new 2021 Volkl Katana 108 for daily driver. A V-Werks Katana for back country skiing and a Revolt 121 for Pow...

    VOLKL IS KILLING IT!!!! Way better to ski than it would appear from looking at the shape. So stoked about the Volkl line up this year. All other manufacturers have some catching up to do.

    Singlecross,

    Please let me know which ski you end up on more. I would bet the M102 but would be interested to see what you end up skiing.

    Chaka,

    I would try the K108 before you buy the M102. Not that the M102 isn't an awesome ski but I think it is worth trying the K108 before pulling the trigger.

    Stuntmanbo,

    It obviously isn't as light as the V-Werks ski... But it definitely isn't as heavy as the old 2014 Katana. In saying that, I think that it is more stable and well-mannered than the...

    We will have to agree to disagree. I own this ski and it is neither soft to flex or loud to ski. Of course, I would be putting the sound against my current quiver. 184 Mantra M5, 184 V-Werks Katana,...
