    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.

    +1 and since the Monster line ends at 88 for 19, that width interests me the most.

    Monster 88 vs. Experience 94 (which measures 92, so a pretty reasonable comparison, IMO).

    Old Monster 108 vs. any e-bike on the planet. Kidding.

    Thanks!

    Slightly OT, but bring back @ScotsSkier comparisons of SLs in each of several niches.

    Citadel vs Alchemist 106. I think you know how I mostly love my Z90 and I'm hoping the Citadel measures up. For me, the Alchemist 106 was my favorite demo ski last season. I was lucky because it was available here in CO to ski so I ended up with several days on the Alchemist.

    For a straight up comparison between 2 similar skis, I would love to see in the cage:
    Stöckli Laser WRT-ST in the 172 variant vs Head Worldcup Rebels i.Race Pro (in say the 175).
    As the Head comes pretty much standard with race plate and FF16 binders, only fair to have the WRT compared similarly plated!

    Couple of questions percolating on these 2:
    Are these skis more GS skis that can easily make a good short turn or are they more Slalom skis that can also hold a stable long turn?
    Under what circumstances is the WRT, with street price of pretty much double the Head, twice as good as the head?

    And as an alternative cage match, to be crowned champion of the (non FIS) performance piste skis, how do either compare against a GS cheater such as the Head WC Rebels i speed pro, Völkl Racetiger GS Pro or Blizzard Firebird WRC WC Piston?
