My own comparison would be that the two skis are very dissimilar. The 94 was turny, easy to ski, and "relatively" soft-flexing. Really, really nice in trees and bumps and floaty enough to make skiing most any kind of deeper/softer snow a real dream. The 103 is essentially a wide-waisted Super G ski. It's got an enormous turn radius and doesn't begin to come alive until you're going about 30mph or more.
To me, the 94 is infinitely more versatile than the 103. That said, if you're a strong skier and your thing is going real fast in variable conditions on big, open faces and bowls then the 103 is one hell of a ski.

The obvious difference is that the 94, being a twin, "skis" shorter than its advertised length. The 88 actually seems to "ski" a little longer. Being wider and a little softer, the 94 will float more in softer snow, while the 88 just blasts through it. The 94 is a bit turnier, and that might feel good if you're spending a lot of your time in trees, chutes, or moguls.
The new 94 is a really cool ski and I'm looking forward to using it this winter. That's not to take anything away from the 88, however. As I said in the thread about what ski would you choose if your life depended on it, the 88 is the ski I would pick if I were knowingly going somewhere really dangerous.

I haven't skied them. I like Fischers a lot and have never been on a pair that didn't feel good, but I haven't skied that model. Based on the geometry, it would seem like a ski that is more comparable to the iM88 than to the Mojo 94, except that the Big Heat is a tiny bit wider and just a tad turnier in the sidecut. Here's a review I found online:big powerful skis for allmountain blasters. The Big Heat is fitted with a pretty serious plate and as such they require a frim hand to tame and a little speed to get up to their powerful and agile best. One for the physically strong expert allmountain skier.
Conquer the mountain comfortably. With maximum high speed turns in all terrain. Based on World Cup technology. This means: optimum power flow to the edges despite the ski being very wide. The smoothest ride there is. Top stability for all uses and piste conditions thanks to a completely new ski concept. Just some of the most important details that make this fast-moving "bulldozer" a true all-round speed merchant both on and off-piste.For perfectionists. Innovative World Cup construction with new sidecut and 90mm ski waist for optimum lift in all snow and piste conditions. Also featuring Flowflex.
Sounds like fun.
