If anyone could weigh in on how these skiis compare on groomers/bumps/pow and stiffness/quickness/weight/energy etc etc it would be a big help !

 

Thanks in advance

The P-98 is medium flex ski for the 98mm range, has a fair bit of sidecut and is a very good ski as daily driver ski for a western based skier with approximately a 50/50 bias between softer snow and firmer snow. The TST and the Rev 105 are both more soft snow biased. Given equal lengths, the TST is much more nimble and quick but less stable. OTH, the Rev 105 is a bit firmer in flex with much less rocker, a more directional feel and a lot more surface area due to the very wide tip. The Rev feels "carvey" and very damp and likes medium to large turns but lacks some of the nimbleness of the TST.

Thank you...I realize it isn't an apples to apples comparison but which ski (TST vs Line P 98) would be better in the bumps ?  TST nimble and  soft vs Line 98 a little thinner but more sidecut ?

That would come down to a preference choice but probably the TST due to the extended rocker section and narrow tip.
