Yes, a bit more float, but less stability in normal turning situations. Shovel will be flappier and the tail will be washier. Have fun!
I'd say you sound like a Holyshred skier in the 192. Quicker and a bit more lively than the Ranger, and the carbon tips of the Ranger can lead to some deflection in the icy spots, where the rubber tips of the Rossi are more compliant. Have fun!
I have two general theories on telemark mounts. The first is you take your skis, boots, and bindings to a shop and have them mounted and don't pay attention to where they mount them and just ski them until they fall apart and never think about it again. The second is to stand on the ski with just your boot on and get a good visual of where you want your boot on the ski, and then mark the toe and heel. It's more dark magic than actual science, I believe. Great tele skis, btw!
The Black Ops 98 KILL IT for me now. They rip everywhere....literally.
I was a ski tech for years at a top shop and still service all of my skis. I run a (basic) 1* bottom bevel and 2* sidewall bevel.
Anyway, that's my experience with the Black Ops 98.
Keep crushing the Cali big mountain terrain on the Black OPS!
The Blackops holyshred would be a great option. It is stiffer than your sky 7s with the titanal plate under foot but it is still a relatively soft ski that would give you plenty of float in deeper snow, plow through the crud easier, and be more maneuverable though trees and moguls. Im not sure how tall you are but if you were skiing the sky 7s in a 188 the 192cm blackops should be fine.
