I know looks aren't everything...but... . The monster looks way better with some color. The drab/muted "earthtones" made it look like a bad tatoo someone got while they were depressed listening to grunge music in Seatle some time in the early 1990's.

The 78 appears to be unchanged from last season.

iMonster 78? ?
124-78-110 (14.6m) 165,171,177,183 For many of our skiers, the most exciting new model from Head. Contender for overall ski of the year. A near perfect blend of off-piste power and hard snow nimble. This ski, we predict, will prove in time to be another Head classic and it may break the heart of some who have relatively new Monster 82's. East, West?no matter. This one is worth a look from just about every strong and skilled skier.

clean carve: 4
soft edge: 4
straight run: 4
stability: 4 rebound: 4
quickness: 4
lightness: 4
forgiveness: 3

This is a great ski but for my tastes (just my preference) it's overly damp and not enough energy for front side fun. The reviews http://forums.epicski.com/showthread.php?t=66258&highlight=4x4 that I have read and folks I have spoken to who have tested the 4x4 have said this is one fantastic, versitile ski. along the lines of LTD, the 4x4 goes 122-75-106.


Now here's a cool looking new ski that Bob Peters loved head 94, http://www.head.com/ski/ski.php?region=us&tag=park_powder&id=1467

132-94-119,  I would love to demo back-2-back against the Watea94.
