Volkl Blaze 94 Skis with Bindings
The Volkl Blaze 94 skis with bindings are an awesome setup for advanced skiers who are looking for a versatile one-ski quiver type of situation. We talk a lot about these mid-90's skis and their ability to do it all pretty darn well. If you're going on a trip for the day or the week, and want to only pack one pair of skis, the Blaze 94 should be at the top of the list. For how light they are, they certainly pack a punch in the energy and snap department, making them a poppy set of skis that loves to be on edge in a carved turn just as much as it likes to be smeared and slarved on fresh and soft snow. Steeps, bumps, trees, you name it, the Volkl Blaze 94 skis with bindings are an amazing killer deal for pure all-mountain skiing with a bit of a freeride influence. We love these skis just as much in the bumps as we do on the groomers, and are equally at home in the trees as they are in the powder. Volkl has really done a great job with building versatility into the skis, and the multi-layer hybrid wood core has a lot to do with it. The hybrid refers to the variation of lighter and softer wood with denser and stiffer wood, making the ski react very well to changing conditions and speeds. Advanced skiers will love the overall well-roundedness of the Volkl Blaze 94 skis with bindings.

I just purchased the Blaze 94s in 179 from you. Currently on the Deacon 84 in 177 - love them for carving and hard-charging. Primarily ski East Coast with a few trips out west.
Lighter weight and playfulness drew me to the Blaze. That being said... I'm having second thoughts... Should I have gone with the Mantra M6? or would that be too similar to the Deacons
I was looking for a ski to handle the soft snow/crud with some off-piste capability. I'm sure I'll be happy either way.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks, again...You guys are great!
I think if you have the Deacon already then the Blaze is a better compliment to that ski than the M6. The Blaze is super maneuverable and a ton of fun to slash turns with in soft snow and crud. The Blaze doesn't have the same top end as the M6 but is much better off the piste and in variable terrain. The Blaze is also lighter than the M6 so you don't work as hard on soft snow and powder days.
First off thanks for always putting out such great content!
I can't decide between a couple skis and was hoping you could point me in the right direction. I primarily ski East Coast resort, and love going hard and fast. That said, I am hoping to branch out into touring and/or out West, and am looking for a solid option that won't feel too compromised in any one setting. I have been looking at the Blaze 94, Head Kore 87/93, and a few others. Any thoughts on what could work best? Also, what size recommendation for 5'10'', 180 lbs, advanced/+?
I'd push you to the Kore 93 because of a higher-end of performance while keeping the weight down and the fun up. Blaze is great, just not quite what you might need for fast skiing. I'd say the Kore 93 in a 177 will get you all you want!
Yes, the 306mm BSL is the one we're looking for!
