Radar Senate Lithium vs Radar Senate Pro?

My current ski is a 2018 Radar Lithium Senate (since August 2018).

My understanding is that the Senate Pro is different 2019 to 2020. (Rocker, I think?)
11 weekends a year, I ski at a private ski lake.
About once a week, I ski a course in open water on a public lake.

I have wondered what the differences are between the Lithium Senate 2018 and Senate Pro 2019 or 2020.
Anyone have any input?
I am riding a 69" Lithium Senate.
6'3, 210 lb
In Sept 2018, I was getting close to running 34mph, -15.
Then I broke an ankle, had surgery, etc.

Currently, I'm close to running 32.3 -15 again
I am not a tournament skier, but rather a recreational course skier who likes progress / improving. 32mph, shortening the rope, 34mph tops.
Thank you for reading and your assistance.

    The 18 is based on the one of the greatest designs in ski history but folks I know who've tried that shape and the new like the new. Can't hurt to demo.
    boats are like girlfriends you love them however there is another one around the corner - bananaron, July 21, 2020

    To the best of my knowledge all Senates of the same model year come out of the same mold. The difference is mainly in the core. Possibly a bit in the lay up to achieve the desired flex.
    The 17&18 had the step design in the bottom. The 19 lost the step and was a more refined. The 20 shape changed again and is just a bit better. With each shape change the Senate has become better and better. They are all good skis but after owning all three years I think the newest model has the biggest sweet spot and is the most fool proof and easy to ski on. At the level you are at the Lithium will be a great choice but you won’t be sorry if you get the Pro.
