Manufacturers description
We’ve never heard anyone say, “if it ain’t broke, don’t make it better.” We added semi-cap construction to make our definition-defying, park-friendly, all-mountain mid-fat a whole grip tougher than before. How are you going to feel the toughness? That depends on how belligerent you get after you and the PB&J have been sitting at apres and it starts talking trash.

Strenghts:
Ridiculously easy to ride and versatile

Weaknesses:
A little diffuse on inserts and no direct pop

Summary:
I'm almost biased here as I've been riding big brother Bibby Pro for many years as my only ski. PB&J is actually the same ski but with a 16mm narrower waist.

In both cases it is about really stiff skis with a playful shape. Many skis try to be "kind" and easy to ride by being soft. Personally, I prefer Moments variant where you get a ski that is really stiff and predictable but where the shape, with a clear twin rocker gets a ski that is very easy to ride in varied terrain. The problem with soft skis often arises when you go out on uneven ground. The ski becomes unpredictable as it is constantly bent very differently. A rigid ski becomes more predictable, but with a classic shape, the rigid ski becomes impossible for non-experts to handle. With Moments shape, that problem disappears. Bibby is the ski that taught me to go off-piste and forest, mostly thanks to this.

Now I still wanted to go down a bit in width and supplement the quiver with a slightly more reasonable waist width for resort skiing in Sweden. PB&J was the obvious choice and it delivers immediately. Regardless of the surface, the ski guides you where you point your toes. There are no no tendencies to cut or anything.

The radius is relatively long + 25m so it is not a ski you lie and carve in a steep piste, but it can of course be driven on inserts when it flattens out. However, it is happy to release the insert and skid out. However, the transition between cord and insert is almost seamless. In a short cord turn, I experience that it goes really well, even in a rock-hard piste. No broad-legged notches in fact, it is possible that it is the stiffness and cushioning that is behind it.

Unfortunately I have not been able to test it in deeper snow yet but I reckon coldly that it will behave like a Bibby but a little narrower. This means that it will not surf on the snow (not even the 118mm Bibby does) but it will walk safely and predictably through the snow. This is partly due to the stiffness as the nose does not bend up on the surface. An advantage of this, however, is that the turning behavior becomes consistent instead of changing in that the nose bends up very much in the middle of turning in heavier snow.

In short, it is a ridiculously simple and intuitive ski that means that you do not have to go around and think about what you do, but you can focus on having fun, jumping on small features and generally having fun.

Strenghts:
PB & J is a crazy nice acquaintance!

Perhaps the most all-round ski I ever traveled: Incredibly intuitive in the ride: You think so; It has already done it! The ski is surprisingly stiff and gives some back, despite quite generous tip / tail rocker. Smooth thanks to the rock, which gives the unexpectedly good lift in the sneeze, despite a modest 101 waist. Was amazed at how nice flex and tip / tailrocker seem to create a good companion who is not afraid of any kind of relationship. I used to have a good time with tip rocker and wanted to have the back like normal / moderate twintip, but I think the benefits are considered.

As a matter of fact, you handle whatever you encounter without problems, and is also very reliable.

Weaknesses:
For me who is very traditionally educated, I sometimes feel that the return of the pist is lost because of the tailrock. Sure, you get a bit of a shot, but far from any WC / GS experience: Rather, the offpiste features are prioritized, which means that the "racing feel" is not right there in the piste. Going skiing is very good, the experience is extremely similar to the Rossis S3: Fast as the attendant in the gearshifts, but thanks to the PB & J is really much stiffer, it does not feel as cool (Put on a hump with the S3, so you see how much it flexes).

Summary:
A great ski, short and good. I spin a lot of skis, give them a season and sell them, but PB & J will keep me like a cruel bachelorette party: It does just everything and does not sacrifice very much somewhere. (Just as I said, only in really hard punching). I'm pretty good, 188's getting well, I'd best compare it to a brilliant combination of a richer Rossi S3 and a kind Katana.

As part of a 2/3 boiler for daily offense and pistachio, the PB & J is formally brilliant.

World Class, Moment!

Well, I liked it so much that I got the thought "If this was fatier, it would be a MAGIC pudder" and went straight ahead and provided "Bibby Pro" big brother. Same flex / shape solid wider. good is that).
