The Prophet 98 is the widest ski of four in the All-Mountain Prophet line. Where the Prophet 90 is more carve-oriented, the 98 is more versatile. It received its highest marks for playfulness. "The longer the turn, the better the carve," Bills said. "This ski loves soft snow, chutes and long turns." Witman said it was "easy to ski and forgiving, but without a lot of pop.” Line’s Capwall combines cap and sidewall construction, and a maple macroblock wood core includes two maple stringers surrounded by aspen. Lastly, a layer of Titanal in an H-shaped die cut adds power while also reducing the weight of a fully metal laminated ski. The results? "Not as strong a carver as some in the category, but capable as an all-arounder," according to Zawacki.
