    I’ve looked through the search function, but haven’t seen any review of the fissile from Prior that are more than a few sentences from a splitfest. Anyone have this ride? Impressions of it with some time on it? It certainly has an interesting shape that has my curiosity!

    Thanks!

    Sorry this is not a review but I just got my XTC carbon Fissile today, I can let you know in a few weeks what it’s like.

    I just got the 11/12 Fissile Splitboard on closeout from REI. So I too want hear some stoke about this board!

    Purchased the G3 Alpinist Splitboard Skins 159-173cm – Long for the 172 cm Fissile Splitboard. These skins are the right length for this splitboard.

    I also just picked up the 72 from REI closeout. Should get it tomorrow. SNOW SNOW SNOW!!

    Not many reviews, but the shape and construction has me drooling!

    (..in fact, I’m so out of control for this ride, I also picked up a 78 demo from Prior directly – Losing It!!)

    So how are the Fissiles treating everyone so far?

    That nose and the super tight sidecut seem like it would work well in the NH woods.

    thanks

    I’m curious about this one too. I am wonder why they don’t split the 161. I will ask them next time I swing by their shop but in the meantime some feedback on the board would be great. I want to know how it works in the woods as well as the steep and deep.

    Interested in this board, seems pretty badass. Any ride quality issues with the XTC carbon vs regular?

    I find it odd that this year, the Fissile Split is name 2014 Backcountry’s Editors Choice Award (see:
    http://backcountrymagazine.com/gear/2014-editors-choice-awards-splitboards/ ).

    Even though the Fissile has been out for a couple of years. Is Backcountry’s Editor Choice just marketing (marketing differentiation and positioning) or a valid review? Why did this year’s Fissile get the award, rather than the year before??? :scratch:

    I picked up the Fissile Split from REI summer 2012.

    I only rode my Fissile about 3 times last year and none of those days were epic powder days.

    I would be interested in hearing more reviews about the Prior Fissile Split.
