They are completely different skis. Soul 7 has a very short radius and is relatively soft compared to the Cochise. The Soul 7 will feel more maneuverable at very slow speeds due to all the sidecut and camber but as soon as you get up to any speed the Cochise will be much more fun busting through crud and just feeling more stable. Plus if you 're coming from a Mantra you're accustomed to the feel if metal. Cochise has metal , Soul 7 has none.

For east coast crud busting and overall mountain domination I'd reccomend the Bonafide over the Cochise. Coming off a 74mm Dynastar jumping to a 108 wasted Cochise would be a bit of a jump. Bonafides will still bust through crud but they'll give you better performance on groomers and tighter east coast trails.

I think you'd totally dig the Peacemakers. They're a ton of fun. Lighter and popper than the Bonafide but still have great grip and performance on groomers. They're easy but still rip. They don't have the top end performance and hard snow grip as a Bonafide but honestly it's pretty close. Gunsmoke and Peacemaker are virtually the same ski just with different dimensions. Very similar feel and characteristics

Any good binding will work. Adrenelins would be great for small tours. Just make sure you get brakes wide enough.. Cochise is 108mm under foot so a 110mm brake would be perfect.

Tons of options if you're supposed to be in the office but want to be shredding instead. Or if you want to be able to communicate with up to 10 of your buddies while you're on the mountain.

If you don't need the intercom feature for more than 2 people check out the HBC 120 plus for $50 less. All the same awesome features as the 220 like voice recognition, noise cancellation, and hands free calling but limits the intercom to just 2 people, not 10.

I'd recommend the 185. The K2's your coming off of are a little softer than the Cochise so going up to the 193 might be a little much. the 185 measures true to length. 193 will be better at speed but the 185 will be more than sufficient and will be a little more versatile and playful in trees and steeps

The fabric in the 13/14 Cosmic is completely different than the fabric in the one reviewed by Blister. All the 13/14 Trew hard shells use their new Private Reserve fabric which is just as durable as the old stuff but much more supple and considerably lighter.

These are accessory speakers/microphones that work with the HBC 220 unit. If you have two helmets you don't need to buy two deprecate devices. Just install a second set of speakers in a different helmet and swap your one controller device between helmets. These will install in Moto helmets and any ski helmet that is drop in compatible.

The HBC 120 plus is the update to the two year old HBC 120. The new controller is much easier to use in te cold and with gloves on an in intercom feature got a big upgrade. The old HBC 120 intercom would only work up to 40 meters. The new one maxes out at 400m and works much better through trees.

The intercom features are the only difference between the HBC120 plus and the HBC 220.

With the 120 plus you can pair only two people together on the intercom system.

With the 220 you can pair up to 10 people together and increase the intercom range up to 1.5 miles.

If you're not going to be using these devices with a large group of people the 120 plus is the way to go. It has the same sound and background noise canceling/ voice recognition features as the 220.

You can be skiing and answer a phone call by just saying hello and the person on the other end of the line would have no idea you're even outside. The Uclear devices block out all the wind and background noise so you conversation will appear crystal clear. Talk on the lift, top of the tram in 70mph winds, while shredding groomers, it doesn't matter. No one will ever know you're skipping work.

The Brahma would be the best Blizzard replacement to your Kendos. Your Kendos have two sheets of metal, Bushwacker has none. Brahma however is the Bushwacker with metal. If you like the feel of your old kendos but want a little updated shape then the Bramha is the ticket. Guy that designed the original Mantra, gotama, katana, kuro, chopstick, etc is the guy that designed the Bonafide, Brahma, Cochise, Bodacious, etc.
