Moment PB&J vs. Line Blend
So here's the deal. I'm too poor to buy more than one pair of skis so I'm looking for a one ski quiver. I've narrowed it down to Line Blends and the PB&J and I want some input from people with more experience than I. I live on the East Coast and will be skiing park a lot, but I also take a two or three week vacation every year to Utah and Colorado. I want something that will be able to handle well in the park, ski well on groomers/hardpack, but also be able to ride in a little bit of pow. Which one should I buy? And I'm always open to other ski suggestions.
I really like me pb&j's! I haven't ridden them in powder yet, but they are great in the park! From what I can tell they are durable also, just some minor chips and stuff but nothing too serious. If I were you I would go with the pb&j
Well the jeronimo is more park relayed which you said you would be doing a lot, but with a 101 waist could handle some pow. Jeffrey is not really ment to be taken ino the park, I have seen it down though, but is more all mountain/backcountry jibbing. So you could go jeffrey
i am a rider for moment so you may think my advise is a bit biased. but the pb and J is honestly my go to ski for park and resort riding. I prefer them to any of the other park skis moment offers because the extra width makes them really stable and better at higher speeds and they tend to be more durable than other models. I personally went through 2 pairs of vices this season and only one pair of pb and j and i skied the pb and j far more that the other skis. they also do well in pow with the early rise in the tip and tail and being +100 in the wast that should provide for more than enough float for most people. I mounted mine dead center to make them better for park riding and that definitely hindered the performance on the rest of the mountain so if you want to make the ski a bit more even in both park and pow i would recommend 2cm back from center.
i am pretty confident you wont be disappointed if you go with the pb and J. they are tough and should last you a while and I feel like they fit your criteria perfectly.
if its between the blend and the pb&j i would ask yourself one question... do you want a ski that is more playful or a ski that is more stable... the blend is much softer than the pb&j so if you want something to butter around on i'd go with that... if your looking for something thats gonna just stomp and feel more locked in go with the pb&j. i've skied both and loved both for different reasons.
Damn that's some bad English, damn mobile
line blends are crazy skis!! I love mine! great in anything and so enjoyable to ski around on
