Browsing through this splitboard site, I have come across several bashings relating to my services; all pointing to the "experimental" Burton split. While I normally don't involve myself in defending accusations I couldn't help but reply to this post. This Burton was exactly that, "experimental” as seen on the NEWS link: http://www.mnttechnologies.com/news.html
The board worked out great for the customer; they used some latches in place of the yin-yang hooks since the board wouldn’t slide apart and reported that it had greater edge hold because of this.
It’s funny how a picture will make some come to an instant conclusion:
While others have the awareness to think for themselves and look at the big picture:
just a guess but the wiggle in the split cut may be to miss the center inserts in Big B's 3D pattern? Probably a better way to go about it.
If you actually look at that picture the base of that board was trashed and had multiple core damages; all repaired. Thus, technically, that picture is a great representation of the quality and extent of repairs performed.
This entire situation reminds me of a time when I received a nasty phone call from my ex wife chewing my ass because my neighbor called her stating that she seen my kids jumping around in the truck unbuckled. After several heated minutes of letting her just talk, I asked her if she was aware that the truck was parked in the driveway.
We have been doing this for many years; have countless hours of reverse engineering and custom tooling fabrication creation under our belts. Do the research, it’s the 21st century and there are plenty of resources at your disposal… I would start with the numerous repeat testimonials from our site:
Looks like they have split quite a few boards (better examples):
