Glad you like the Revs too.  They are an easy ski in the sense that you don't have to say right on top of them all the time.  You can push them and they perform but if you want to chill out and just relax and cruise, they won't sneak up and bite you.  Very big sweet spot.  They are not as exciting on groomers as some higher performance skis because of that but a great all-rounder.  It is a ski I can take out west, or for powder days in the east and have fun on 95% of the time.

They definitely come around quicker than the MX88 although I just skied that for a day.  I remember it as a really great ski and unbelievably stable.  I was skiing with some fast downhill GS types and one of them had a GPS that said we were going over 50 MPH.  I felt fine until the wind wanted to take my helmet off my head and was pulling on my chin strap.  The Rev is more playful, better in powder and bumps, probably not as good in crud and cut up at speed but still very good.
