Thanks for the information. I read this in the description about the core: The D4 sandwich construction keeps the flex poppy and transfers from edge to edge quickly. The core is an extra special blend of top secret wood and bio-engineered poplar with milled channels to reduce weight and increase pop.
Do you think the "milled channels" can be a problem?
Is that this years banger, with the purpleish topsheet?
I looked at splitting that. The only thing i saw happening was that super soft nose getting even softer. I would just be weary when/if you get out on it not to put too much weight on the nose it in split mode.
The milled channel should not matter, and if there is a channel right down the middle you could fill it with epoxy once its split. Not optimal, but nothing that would stop me either. I split a K2 Gyrator with honeycomb and just filled it with epoxy and it seemed fine...
