The bents are a great pair of skis...if you consistently have 3ft deep days. This season there have only been a few so I have also gotten to test this ski on groomers and torn up groomers/small amounts of packed powder. They're great fun to ride both forward and switch and their super forgiving with they're flex and actually do decent on groomers. They will get a little flappy but they hold a decent edge and you can get some solid carves. The one thing I really hated about these was the weight. I know it's expected with skis this big but the swing weight prevents you from really throwing these things around off of any big kickers, and I would NOT recommend ever using these in rails. It does not work. But hopefully this has been helpful. Thanks!
