Scott,Phil, etc

How do you think the power 800 compares to next year's S800? Same ski with ngt or totally new? An upgrade or downgrade? Thanks

Perhaps they didn't hear you.  @Philpug @dawgcatching @Whiteroom 

 

I know the women's skis in this line up were made a little more nimble but I don't know if they did anything to the men's side.

I didn't ski them back to back, and it was tough to really say fully: my Power 800s was fully tuned, and the demo S800 was the typical somewhat railed Blizzard out of the wrapper tune.  With that said, they felt VERY similar.  Any changes are super minor.
