Best ski I've ever ridden. I'll ride PB&J's till the day I die they never let me down on any terrain, any condition, or at any speed either (they go hella fast). Id recommend the longer lengths, Im 5'11 and ride the 188's and they are boss.
The PB&J is a really strong all-mountain ski, with some park capability. With a stiffer flex and a generous amount of tip and tail rocker, the ski is certainly built to handle varying snow conditions and terrain. However, despite the stiffer flex and thickish waist, the PB&J is still very maneuverable. The ample rocker also allows it to handle well in deeper snow, though the 101mm waist is a bit narrow to be a true powder ski. The progressive recommended mount (about -4 from ski center, I believe), symmetrical flex, and sidecut give the ski decent switch riding performance. However, it is a little bit wide, heavy, and stiff to be a really good park ski. The balance in performance of the PB&J seems to be about 70 percent all-mountain, 30 percent park. Overall, the PB&J is a strong ski that shines in technical terrain, some bumps, and groomers, but might be less than ideal for super deep snow and dedicated park riding.
These are very playful skis, super fun if you know how to throw them. Advertised as a one ski quiver the PB&J's almost live up to their name. The most notable problem with these is their notorious death rattle, when you turn your skis sideways while going on crud the PB&J's start to shake like a maraca. However on favorable snow conditions these skis hold an edge with the best of them. In the park the PB&J's are easy to whip around although if you are doing anything but floaters and inverts I found they're much too stiff. Skiing switch is absolutely a joy with these skis, mount them 2cm back and you can whip around backwards just like you can forwards. They're not perfectly symmetrical although for all intents and purposes (Especially on the west coast) you're better off with a directional shape.
I took these skis to Utah and skied some powder with them and I was very impressed with how they handled. Even on windblown crap these held an edge as long as there was untracked snow to ride. Bringing these through natural moguls isn't my favorite thing to do though, they're very stiff and it feels like your're sitting on a washing machine.
Overall these are good skis, I wouldn't look to them for a solid park ski but if you're looking for a bluebird ski or something to hit the sidecountry with than these are the skis for you.
