Opus vs. Bent Chetlers? Which is more capable in the trees, powder, and groomed?
I’m just now getting on the Bentchetler, look for a review in a few weeks! So far I can say both are very capable and fun in trees, and pow. The Opus is more fun on groomers and in tight trees because of the tighter sidecut radius.

I would say the Opus for trees and jibbing because they are softer and have a shorter turn radius and Bentchetler for more open area and charging.
I've skied both, but not in 192cm, plus It's been like 3 years I didn't try the bents. I had the 185cm opus this, really like them, good for trees, really surfy feeling. They we're a bit too soft sometime ( I'm 5'11 and 165 lbs ) but the 192 are stiffer I think.
They are both great ski, I would suggest you to demo them if you can, if not blister is your friend, try to message them, they are really nice and might be able to help you a little more
