The Bent is a classic pontoon. It's great for freshies in the trees, slashing big pow fields, or lift lap storm days with the crew. But for the NAF, this skis sucks at big hits, crud, or anything frozen. It likes soft, creamy snow and you will too. We recommend mounting -1.5 from center. This is where Chris mounts his and we find it to be the ideal pivot point for deep snow.
