Forums Splitboards PRIOR Customer Service Fiasco Reply To: PRIOR Customer Service Fiasco November 10, 2006 at 5:03 pm #588631 thomas_m 17 Posts After putting off the purchase last Spring and thinking about it all Summer, I bought my first splitboard a couple weeks ago. This thread was one of the many things that I read in researching my purchase. I decided on an all-round template in the mid-high 160’s and found basically the same deal on a current Voile FR and a Prior Backcountry from last season – both mail order. I’ll give you one guess which one I bought, but that’s probably an easy one… Right now, I see Prior’s primary advantage as that they offer shapes that no other builder has in their catalog, especially the pintail like the Khyber (the alpine ATV is probably a small niche). If the teasers that have been thrown out about new Voile models for next year include a pintail, I’m guessing they will pull in even more market share. Just a newby’s take, T.
