Anyone have been able to compare this year's and next year's Watea 94 side-by-side? I've tried next year's and really liked it, but never have skied this year's model. The newer one, according to the rep is more stable and a tad beefier. I want to pick up a pair to use for light powder when traveling to Utah or CO and for some back-country/AT that I am going to start next year here in the PNW. You can still get some of this year's model now and at good prices, so even though money is in short supply for me at the present time, it might be a "necessary" purchase right now. I won't be getting the binders until next year since I still am deciding about that.
