The dimensions of the 3 versions, as to my best recollection...It's been 3 months since I did the measurements. This is for 165, by the way.
Omeglass Retail: 116-63-103 - 11 meters
Omeglass Comp: 116-64-100 - 14 meters
Omeglass WC: 112-63-99 - Lord knows what...probably more than 14 though!
The plate on the WC is the actual WC race plate (first seen on the Rossi skis)...as opposed to the blue and silver plastic/composite one on the Omeglass and Omeglass Comp. The WC plate is higher than the Comp version, and is built very differently in it's hinging movement.
The WC is typically stiffer both torsionally and in lengthwise flex...likely due to more metal in the ski.
And then there's the other stuff, which can't really be compared easily...like quality of base stock, the internals...pixie dust, faerie fuzz, whatever.
All I know is that while I can easily free ski some mean slalom on mine, they are a handful in the course!
