Got some info from the forum a few weeks ago and was able to get on a pair of Kartel 98’s. Pretty awesome ski. Coming from the 2010 Gotama and 2013 Chronic, it was a very different feeling. At 33 it seems my park days are behind me, and I’m curious to see if the PB&J would serve me as a better all mountain ski for east coast (and occasional non deep day out west).
I’m 5’8” 150 and used the 176 Kartel. Felt great but oddly enough felt pretty short. The PB&J 182 would most likely be the only size I’d look at. I’m ordering this week, so figured I’d gather any other intel before doing so. No lucky finding a demo PB&J in my neck of the woods. Cheers
