    Earlier in the thread he mentioned that the regular Wildcat will be heavier next year.

    On that note, I love my Wildcat 108's and I'm curious if the feel of the regular Wildcats is similar in deeper snow, with the extra width making up the floatation difference? Right now I have Noctas as my pow ski and while I love them, they're definitely on the surfy side and sometimes I feel like I want to charge harder on deeper days, much like the 108's handle when there's several inches or less. So, does the feeling translate?

    I was thinking back to this past season and while I skied a lot of pow, possibly my favorite day consisted of an overnight dusting and then some really nice windbuff. The 108's were just so fun that day that I started to neglect my other skis. Here's one lap I took at Alpine: https://www.instagram.com/p/B7R17K4Fcq8/

    Moment Skis Discussion

    Just to add to what J said above; not completely sure what you’re asking? If they’re GOING to build a heavier pro, or if they’re going to CONTINUE making a heavier pro? AFAIK the Blister Pro and the Bibby/Wildcat have always been the same ski except for the very first Blister which brought back the old design which is also when Moment started using that design for the Wildcat going forward. As their build processes evolved the ski got lighter but they’ve always remained the same ski. They have discussed, and it very much sounds like is going to happen, adding some weight back to the ski to give it more of that OG heftyness that everyone liked so much. So my understanding is that both skis will remain identical, other than graphics, if they continue to make the Blister Pro. But who knows, maybe Moment and Blister will collaborate on something completely different for an entirely new Moment Blister Pro? I don’t believe either of them have made any comments on whether or not they’ll be doing another Blister Pro this year. Considering their relationship Id be a little surprised if they didn’t do something, but Blister does make a Pro with Folsom as well so who knows??
    Fear, Doubt, Disbelief, you have to let it all go. Free your mind!

    Some things to look forward to:

    - new sizes
    - new cores
    - new plastics
    - new composites
    - some heavier builds
    - some updated designs that charge harder than ever before
    - a new model or two....
    You should throw a parking lot party for the launch! Of course it wouldnt be complete w/o a Slayer cover band... http://www.slayensemble.com/

    I'll bring a lawn chair, a case of Budweiser and a couple trailer park girls...

    I demo'd the 108s last year and took them up on a day like that at kirkwood. Really fun skis. Based on skiing 190 108's for like three days and 190 bibby's for 4 years - Yes - the feel is the similar in soft snow. Minimal taper and rocker makes for a these days unique combo of tracking/skiing fast well and being loose. The full width version is obviously not as quick side to side. It tracks WAY better - you can point 190 bibbys and go. Still have that nice loose feeling all the time though. In no way super challenging for their size.

    I was skiing on older bibby's (2014?) but the 108's seemed to be noticeably stiffer right behind the heel piece - the older ones I was on flexed a bit more uniformly. but that might be old ski vs new ski.

    If you wanna ski like you did in that video but when there's 8 inches of cut up pow, the wildcat should be at or near the top of the list

    Just a casual idea. Scored 190 dwt in the blem sale. Imma likely mount and ski em. But I would also size down for touring duty if anyone wants to trade for 184s. Cannot tell what the blem is. They look immaculate to me.
    wait!!!! waitwaitwaitwaitwaitwaitwaitwait...Wait!
    Zoolander wasn't a documentary?
