HEAD fans have a tough choice in wider waist widths: The light and techy new Kore models (93-117 mm), which did, after all, win this category, or the classic Monsters. No proprietary composite core technology here; just metal-reinforced wood, prized by purists. Testers said the Monster 88 felt a bit softer this year, but it’s still a beefy, edgy hard-charger with a greed for speed. Elling: “What a beast. A smooth all-mountain super-G destroyer. The real deal.”

Strengths: Stability at Speed, Hard-Snow Integrity, Crud Performance
