Some of these new skis coming out that weigh 2500+ grams... no thanks.

    Which core did the Wildcat 108's get?

    Ditto, if a ski is too light I have to use more energy to keep it under control at speed.

    Yeah Tahoej, you're definitely gonna hate those heavy 108s. Send them to me for proper disposal.

    IMO, light skis are good for skiing uphill. Or spinning. Otherwise, gimme DA BEEF

    When I said "lighter" I meant for an inbounds ski, so like 1900 - 2200 grams vs. 2300+ ... IMO that's the sweet spot for feeling light enough to swing around easily but heavy enough to still charge through cut-up snow (for skis in the 182 - 190cm range). Seems like the Moment crew agrees with that, generally speaking, based on all of the lighter weights on so many of their models compared to previously.

    Other ski is 1974 grams, so just a bit lighter than the web site says. I was planning on mounting with STH2ís but kind of thinking about Shifts at that weight. Seems perfect for a do it all travel ski. These are 184cm, btw.

    I havenít flexed my Ravens in a while so hard to say but Iím guessing somewhat similar- but obviously with a little more back-bone.

    That Is a bit different than the website states. Curious if others get a similar weight.

    Not doubting you but the Moment website says the PB&J for 2018/2019 weighs 1860 grams/ski. I know Moments have gotten lighter over time, but I thought it was kind of gradual, not 200 grams/ski in one year. Can anyone else weigh a pair of PB&Js from 17/18 or 18/19?

    My 17/18 188 Moment PB&J weigh 2033g & 2063g.

    I’ll re-weigh them to night, but it should be right.

    That's kinda disappointingly light.

    My Wildcat 108 190s came in at about 2125 grams per ski. Not too light, not too heavy. Should be just right!

    Huh. So yours are ~70 grams heavier than Mr. Pretzel's. That's a pretty big variation. Especially since I thought Moment was touting their new core supplier and construction techniques that'd be more consistent.

    Is there a place on the order form where I can ask for a heavy pair?

    I don't think we can ask for less than a 50g-75g+- variation between pairs, I'm super impressed theres only 14g between the actual skis. Other brands are around that 50g difference.

    I think its really dependent on the supply of wood they use for each set of cores. Weights naturally vary depending on season and batch of the wood they receive. I too thought they were really dialing in the construction which would lead to more consistent weights, but apparently not. Seems normal though, this happens with a lot of skis.

    And i was actually thinking about doing the same thing haha Give me the heaviest pair you got! Although when i want to ski heavy skis, Ill just bust out my 192 Garbones 2400 grams, yewwww. Fucking rockets!

    For other reference, also just got some Wildcat 108 Tour 190 that came in at 1780 grams and 1820 grams. Slight variation, and slightly heavier that listed weight, but its very subtle and Im not complaining.

    My 15/16 188 PBJs are the same, right around 2050 grams.
