I can't remember the last time I had so much fun, everywhere on the mountain, on any other skis.
If you want a true "everything" ski, look no further.
These things rip on the groomers, power through the crud, edge well on the ice and float very nicely through the powder.
On the groomers, the are very responsive and have a lot of snap, especially in quick turns. Whether I'm carving quick turns, GS or even bigger, the Prophet 98s edge and respond very well. At 98, they do take more effort to get on edge than something in the 80-90 range, but that's the obvious trade-off for a true all mtn ski. And not a very big one. They do have a slight early rise, but plenty of camber. They feel great no matter what kind of turns I'm making and I don't even notice the slight early rise when I'm carving turns on the groomers. The sidecut on these is perfectly balanced for whatever types of turns you like to carve.
At high speeds (45-60) these feel very stable.
These things easily power though all sizes of crud.
I have a blast skiing these in the powder. The slight early rise in the tip makes a noticeable difference in the powder without adversely affecting how they handle all other conditions. Turns on these skis are so easy in the pow, I really see no reason for all the overkill reverse camber, full rocker gimmicks on other "all mountain" skis.
I like the metal matrix and directional flex in these better than the torsionally stiffer full sheet of metal in the Mantras.
If you're considering these skis, I promise-- you won't regret purchasing them.
