        Overall

        I've read that the Head Mojo's are a bombproof ski and I'm coming to believe this is true.  It's a great all mountain twin and I highly recommend it to any advanced/top skiers who can handle a ski of this weight/stiffness.

        Performance

        This product is extremely versatile, and proves to be an extremely tough ski.  It's extremely well made.  The cap construction is flawless.  The new UHM-C base needs a lot of wax in the beginning but proves to be extremely fast even in wet snow.

        This is a great ski for some mild park, hitting rails, boxes, and feels extremely stable in the air.  It has some decent weight so it can plow through the crud, so make sure your legs are conditioned as they will take you for a ride.

        Have not skied these in powder yet but will update my review once I have.  I've skied on some 10cm fresh stuff and they felt like they floated fairly well, but the true test will be with 30+cm.

        Design

        The blue/black base is unique and eye catching.  I think its a nice change from previous years white/black.  The 07/08 pattern is a tidal wave which comes together nicely when both ski's are put together.  The mojo90 brand is on the back of the left ski and appears the same as previous years.

        The accents underfoot match the accents on the matching Head Mojo 15 binding which is a nice tough.  The topsheet has a nice texture to it, which I believe is scratch resistant and prevents snow sticking to the topsheet for style points :)

        Value

        I was able to purchase these directly from a Head rep, so I got these sticks in October 2007 for $470 tax in and shipped.

        They retail for $650+ USD so -I- feel this is a great value :)

        Fit

        I bought the 176's based on my weight/height/skiing ability.  Im 5'10 & 190lbs so I found this was a good fit for me.  This size still retains a nice turning radius of about 20m due to a nice sidecut.

        Characteristics

        Stiffer but designed this way to be more versatile across the entire mountain.  A larger or more aggressive skier will be able to flex these sticks with ease.  It's definitely stiff underfoot but the tips and tails have some good flex as they get fairly thin on the tip and tail.

        Durability

        Toughest ski's I've owned yet.  They feel extremely well made.  I've hit some rails already and there is no evidence of base scars or sidewall damage.  Give me some time to work these puppies in and I'll post an update with anything I come across.
