Any idea about the sidecut/radius/lengths?

Wonder what the 10C gets you over the 9+ other then a cm wider.  It is a hundred bucks more on the ski depot site.

Slightly different turning radius and different binding.......

John thanks for the response. Know anywhere we can get some more detail?  Design goals? Shorter radius? Longer? Flex?

What is different about the binding.....

ditto...$100 in comparison to prices isn't that much...

I've had the chance to ski these already.  It feels like the same ski as last year, but it's a bit better in the crud and doesn't "waffle" like the prior progressors did in chunky snow.  I don't mean that the ski has been "sported down"; it's just more neutral in the spectrum (as opposed to being a "racer's spare time ski").  I like them!

Wonder if they're stiffer than the +9's?

My read on the 10 is that it's a high performance version of the 8+.  Dimensions are a lot closer to the 8+ than the 9+ and rated for skill levels up to 10.  I'm currently on the 8+ and find it to be a versatile eastern ski - great hard snow grip, not too stiff for fun in the bumps, and enough width for handling a bit of fresh snow and crud.  I'm guessing the 10 would give up a bit of versatility in exchange for higher performance.
