You demo'd those volkls? I demo'd the crap out of the head johnnies, jerrys, dynastar legands, sultans, and a couple line prophets last season. The mantras light and flickable? The line prophet models were like two canoes strapped to my feet, but the heads and dynastars are silly nice.
Dynastar doesn't have a great reputation. Had a pair of 2008 "Nothing But Troubles", and let me tell you; they lived up to their name...
The Mantras are awesome. I'm buying a pair of 2012's because I love
my 2010's so much. My favorite ski ever. Metal topsheet is super lightweight. They charge super hard, carve well, and float in the powder. I love line skis as well, but if you're getting a powder ski for line, get the SFB's. Def. powder only skis, but worth it. When it comes to Prophet vs. Mantra, Mantra always wins.
