    Can someone tell me what year the board I have.

    nulle is? And where it was made? And what issues I should look out for. Haven’t ridden it enough yet, or any other splits to have an opinion but I got it for a great price so hopefully she holds up.

    Hey all – just back from a split trip to Svalbard (wow!), opted to take my Hovercraft Split that really hasn’t seen much use (15/16 east coast didn’t offer much). On day 4, noticed a de-lam on the edge right behind my forward foot, Spark Arcs. Will take it in to the shop and let the Jones rep have a look at it, but no damage to the edge other than normal use scratches so hopeful they do the right thing. I’ll report back.

    So far, no love from Jones. The rep is claiming there is rock damage so the delam is not covered under warranty (they did offer a pro form replacement). The base does have a very minor scratch near the delam that needs ptex, but the edge itself is not dented or damaged in any way. Not sure how to post a pic here. I will try to reach out to Jones Boards directly and see if they can offer a better resolution. My Prior and Never Summers have taken much more of a beating with nothing like this happening.

    Hi guys. Few days ago I came across a jones split from 17/18 season with unaligned touring bracket inserts. It was not possible to srew in all 3 screws on a Spark R&D bracket. We tried the same bracket on several other boards and it worked effortlessly. Has anyone heard of such issue with this year’s jones splits?

    @pablo – I ran into a similar issue while setting up a friend’s 17/18 Dreamcatcher this past weekend. I found that inserting in the screws fully into the touring bracket before placing the bracket onto the board and turning each screw one turn at a time was able to do the trick for me.

    maybe just use a round file and stretch the holes out in the touring bracket to where they need to be.

    @mr. Hartig – this would not work for us, we tried it.
    @scooby2 – probably this would work, but it kinda sucks to have to file your brand new bindings because the inserts on the board are not on the right place…

    Yeah Pablo, if you bought the board new, I would push to have it replaced because an insert out of the pattern is unacceptable at retail price.

    Otherwise a touring bracket is like a $25 part I think and pretty easy to customize if you only need a few mm of room for an out of place insert. I have shaved space on a Spark LT bracket from having an insert out of place myself with no issues since.

    If you aren’t too keen on modifying a touring bracket. Reach out the folks at Jones and hopefully they will make things right.

    Yes, this is what I am planning to do. I was just curious to hear if anyone else has heard of such issue with this year’s boards.
