thought i would chime in and say i got mine (prior backcountry 168) from a retail store and turns out the holes are misdrilled – off maybe by a millimeter – but for 1000 clams this should be precision craftsmanship!

reading this thread is somewhat shocking considering the high remarks the boards from this company usually get. i didnt bother to let prior know about this and after your posts i probably wont at all. in any case i still love the board and love splitting but i would seriously consider spending more money with prior. sorry to all you folks out there who have had some serious issues but thanks for posting bout them!
