Forums Splitboards looking for a more playful board Viewing 7 posts - 1 through 7 (of 7 total) Author Posts October 24, 2014 at 6:44 pm #580239 FirstAscent 111 Posts Hey everyone, I’ve been on a Prior Khyber split for the last 3 years and it’s been a great board, and I’ll definitely keep it. However, I’ve really been wanting something more playful and have been looking at the AMF since I’ve been happy with my current Prior. I don’t ride switch all the time but I want to more and more. I don’t do a lot of freestyle inbounds but I do see myself pushing that direction more and more. wanted to get some opinions though on some other similar boards you might recommend. so..whatcha think? Thanks! October 24, 2014 at 7:52 pm #678063 Jefe009 675 Posts Never been on a Prior but I hear good things. My pow / soft boot split is a Arbor Abacus and I love it. One of the more playful boards I’ve been on. Very poppy off the tail, which I like. Rides and lands switch great, just lean back and butter it. I like hard boots and Venture boards for big steep lines, but for pow and pillow laps the Arbor is probably as good as it gets for me.

Good luck! www.splitlife.net December 7, 2014 at 8:47 pm #679333 dmurphy48 25 Posts +1 on the Arbor Abacus. I have found it very playful and fun in the powder. You just need to bounce it a little bit and it will pop pretty easily.

Try the Helix/Zelix…It rode solid and was a hard charger…proper bc booters and backcountry lines, but dislikes shitty resort groomers.

Dave Downing is the Man on this design and He basically got rid of all the excess surface area you don’t need but think you do Do a visual compairison on other boards Now doesn’t that 148 scream sports car ride ???
