Here's the latest update of my 2011 Line Prophet 90 (179cm) w/ Marker Griffon bindings:
I have a total of 9 days on them and so far and I really love them. I've skied at:
luckily, we were blessed with lots of fresh snow this year so I got to test its 90 mm underfoot. While it's not as floaty as my friends' Volkl Mantras (98mm), it definitely cruised through fresh new powder and in between trees. The 2011 version does not have the early rise on the tips so you do have to ski backseat in powder runs but overall the skis didn't slow me down.
These skis rip. I clocked at 60mph on these and felt really stable when I bomb through trails. Despite the "metal matrix" to dampen the chattering, I definitely noticed a lot of chattering at high speeds. I'm not sure if that's because these metal sheets are missing on the tip and tail but otherwise the chattering wasn't bothersome for me. (I'm 5'11'' 173lbs.)
Hardpack and Ice:
They carve really well. If you haven't skied anything above 84mm, don't worry---the 90s and above these days seem to be the norm because I was carving so well on super icy trails at Killington's black diamond.
The cap construction definitely holds up real well. I never skied the newer Prophet models that come with CapWall construction (sidewall and cap construction together) but I like the cap construction for my needs. It doesn't chip and break as easy as my other skis with full sidewall cuts. Even with 9 days of hard skiing, I only see a few scratches and nothing major. It still looks brand new.
I'm happy with the purchase. These are my go to skis when I want to just rip all over the mountain. Powder days, hard pack, groomed, ice crud trees nothing matters. I feel really confident in them. My only complaint is the graphics. I don't care for them and frankly they look rather boring to me. I like fun graphics that standout (e.g. Armada TST)
