-eREKTion-PB&J, it's built better and skis better. The Bent 100 feels super weak and I hated my sample pair on super hard pack snow which is what I imagine east coast skiing is like.
While I totally grant that you may prefer the feel of the PB&J over the Bent 100 (everyone has their own tastes), I don't think you can make the claim that Bent has an inferior build quality. I won't claim to say that it's better than the PB&J, but it's worth noting that the Bent 100 is handmade here in Austria, where each ski is individually weighed, individually hand-flexed and then hand-paired with its perfect mate. This factory is also responsible for all of Armada's skis, the vast majority of Black Crows', lots of Faction's and Kastle's skis. Build quality is what we are known for.
One thing I will say about how the Bent 100 skis is that it skis really short for its length. If you normally ski something around 180, you need to ski the 188. Every length feels and skis much shorter than how they measure and this for sure plays a role in how the ski behaves. I'm on the 188 which is super fun, but it could even be a little longer for me.
