    Cage Match Comparison 2019 Nordica Navigator 90 vs 2019 Rossignol Experience 88 Ti

    The upper 80-90mm category is one of the more contested and important categories, period. There are a lot of really good skis here, from every manufacturer, and really no bad choices; because of these skis' versatility, there are very few wrong choices, either. You could make a case for almost...

    Cage Match Comparison Head Monster 83 vs Liberty VMT V82

    @Superbman asked for this one, and even though I really like both of these skis, is this really a viable Cage Match? The whole premise of the Cage Matches is that they are usually between two skis that are commonly compared; at first I thought these two would not be on the same radar, but the...

    Volkl Supersport 5 Star

    Hi, I have a pair of Volkl Supersport 5 Star that I haven't used in a long time. How does that ski compare to newer allround skis these days? Is it worth getting these Volk skis tuned or should I simply buy/rent a new pair of skis?

    Cage Match Comparison 2019 Nordica Enforcer 93 vs 2019 Blizzard Rustler 9

    For being in the same family, Blizzard and Nordica are really going after each other. I don’t get it. Guys, you are the same company, globally speaking. Does it matter if a customer buys the orange one or the red one? Does it matter if the money goes in the right pocket or the left pocket? I am...

    Cage Match Comparison 2019 Head Supershape iTitan vs 2019 Fischer The Curv GT

    The two hard-snow skis that go Head to ... umm ... up against each other here are the Head Supershape iTitan and Fischer's Curv GT. These two skis deserve a throwdown that the majority of readers will be interested in. They define what Cage Matches are all about: both are designed for the same...

    Cage Match Comparison 2019 Cage Match Requests

    I have some in my mind but the idea of the Cage Match is what two skis the consumer will be comparing when they walk into a ski shop. So, please let us know what two skis you want to get compared for this coming season. Post em here.

    Cage Match Comparison 2018 Blizzard Rustler 11 vs 2018 Nordica Enforcer 110

    Some cage matches are tougher than others; this one of them. When the skis are more similar than different, my work gets harder -- but of course that's why you pay me the big bucks. So where do we start with the similarities? The same factory? The same parent company? Where, oh where do we...

    Cage Match Comparison 2017 Blizzard Bonafide vs 2017 Head Monster 98

    Wallflowers need not reply to this comparison; in fact, just keep moving along. The Bonafide and Monster 98 are the two heavy hitters in this segment. I am not saying these are 11/10th skis, but they are definitely for stronger, more aggressive chargers. These two skis also have some of the...

    Comparison Review Thumbnail Review: 2017 Head Supershape Series

    Head was generous enough to drop off four pairs of the all-new Supershapes for us to try at Arapahoe Basin over Mother's Day week. We received a 170 Magnum (green), 170 Rally (red), and 170 and 177 Titan (blue). Unfortunately, the iSpeed (yellow) was not available. These skis were out on demo...
