Dynastar M-PRO 90 Ski with Bindings
The Dynastar M-Pro 90 skis with bindings are a fantastic choice for all-mountain skiers who are looking to dabble in a little bit of everything. This setup oozes versatility, and the build and shape have a lot to do with it. Dynastar has been experimenting with the use of polyurethane (PU) as a supplement to the wood core in their skis for a few years now, but the M-Pro series takes it to the next level. Starting with a poplar wood core that runs the central spine of the ski, the PU material basically surrounds that core as a frame. While the material is not too dissimilar from that which is used in high-end alpine ski boots, it works very well in this application. Since the ski lacks a full-metal laminate, it does need some type of sophistication to keep it damp and smooth, and this PU material works incredibly. In addition to this PU and wood core, the skis also benefit from Dynastar's Rocket Frame Ti laminate. This partial metal layer is edge to edge underfoot, and extends and tapers to the middle towards the tip. This gives the ski a playful feel, better flotation, and smoother turn initiation while keeping the mid-part of the ski stable and strong. Remaining wide through the tail, this laminate allows the ski to finish turns strongly and with a lot of positive energy. It's a great way to build skis, and from what we've seen and skied, it actually works quite well.

I was checking out your reviews of the M-Pro 90 and was hoping for some advice.
My last pair of skis was a pair of K2 Apache Explorer's (184) , which I loved until binding failure sent me to the hospital for some lower leg work.
I'm 44, 6'0", 200lbs - solid advanced, East Coast (VT) is my primary ground.
Primarily a front-sider, but when there's a dump, I enjoy a bit of off-piste action.
Over the past season I've demoed the Deacon 84s (177 - felt short, 182 - just right), but I'm fearful they could be one-note.
This past weekend I took out the Brahama 88s (177) which I mostly loved but felt very squirrely with lots of chatter at speed.
The M-Pro reviews seem put it in a sweet spot, but I'm concerned the 178s will feel short and 186s too long.
I've also been reading/watching up on the Ripstick 88s and Stance 90s, but find myself in a bit of analysis-paralysis.
Nice strong tail to the M-Pro 90 for sure with a fun shovel that likes to be told what to do. I'd go 178 in that ski over 186. Stance is a bit more consistent from tip to tail, and is a whole lot of fun. My guess is that you'd like the Ripstick at lower speeds, but not so much when you get going. I'd narrow focus to M-Pro and Stance, with special emphasis on the wonderful predictability and intuitiveness of the Stance. Probably 182 in Stance. Have fun!
