First of I'm 5'10, 170. Adv./Expert skier. I like a stiff stable ski (out off all the ski's I've tried the monster 88's are my favorites). Now I'm looking for a new ski that's a little wider that I'll mount with Marker Dukes most likely, that will be used about 70% Resort 30% Out of Bounds. The resort skiing will be about 90% trees and bumps.
So far my leading ski choices are the Line Prophet 100 and the Mojo 94'sprobably in around the 180cm length. If there's anyone who's skied both and can give me a direct comparison the difference in feel between these two skis it would be appreciated.
I may be able to help you.... My previous pair of skis was/still is the Monster 88; I love them. I bought the Prophet 100's this year, in 186, also had the 88's in 186, and I love the 100's twice as much as the monsters. So much, in fact, that the 88's haven't left my garage since I bought the Prophets.
I, to, was down to the Mojo 94 and the Prophet 100, but in the end the 94 was too close to the 88 in waist width, that it wasn't worth it. I never demoed the 94, but, the construction is more similar to the 88, it's going to be close to the same ski in a true twin tip version.
The prophet does everything as good or better than the 88. It's Amazing on the groom for its width, way easy in the p[owder, and super fun. It's much lighter than the the Monster, but still a good medium-medium firm flex. Once you find the sweet spot on it, it's very easy to pilot. I would say the only thing the Monster 88 does better than the prophet is blow up crud. The Prophet holds its own, but the 88 is just a tank in the crud, demolishing anything in site. However, the prophet is way better in trees, easier to throw around, and more nimble and quick (shorter radius) than the 88. I'm 6-1 220 lbs and I do just fine on it and have a blasty-blast while skiing it..... Hope this helps!...
