It kicks ass. I actually prefer the 106 apostles over the 98. They have the same flex pattern but because the 106 is wider, it feels more stable. Most of RMU's skis are on the stiffer side of the spectrum but the Apostles are softer compared to the rest of the selection. If you are considering the apostle 98, I would recommend the rippahs if you want a stiffer ski for hitting jumps and skiing real fast, but the apostle 98 is better for hitting rails and dicking around with presses & butters.
For skiing park, definitely get the wood core. They are much more responsive than the metal cores.
Dude hit the nail on the head above... Wood core for park for sure. You could go rippahs as a more park oriented setup which would be slightly stiffer than Apostles but Apostles won't slay jumps as hard I'd imgaine.
Skied Apostle 105's (RMU updated the model this past season to the 106) this season in the park and they were a complete blast. They're incredibly light for their width, super easy to throw around for spins and swaps. Stable at speeds and fun as an all mountain ski too. I'd imagine the 98's are more park oriented but I didn't really see the width of the 105s to be compromising in any way in the park
