standinginawe,

bcrider sent me this when I asked the pics question. You have to have them hosted somewehre, he recommeded photobucket.com and that is where I started uploading mine from. This link should do the trick.

viewtopic.php?t=3605&highlight=

Show us what you've got.

Finally got out to tour on Sunday 2/10, latest start to the backcountry for me in 12 years.
The bindings are great. I was able to link telemark turns, which is huge. I don't ski.
Lighter, easier, blah blah blah what everybody else said.
Thanks Will!

Well first I had to learn how to post pics...thanks Mumbles...Anyway, we're all thanking Will at Spark R&D so here's another...although I only received the benefit of his kindness and connections. Thanks Will! I'm looking forwar to the day I get my Ignitions! Alright, well I finally finished the Bent Metal setup I've been working on and couldn't wait to share it here...everyone's kicking ass with the mod's and making it happen for themselves and it's a great thing to see all the cool things we're all doing to make the setup better.

I took some BM's from ebay, got some highbacks and a lot of advice from Will, picked up some light weight straps from RIDE at a local boardshop and threw some mod's on the BM HEAVY factory mechanical connections. The total time on the fab was about 10 hrs in the garage (once I got everything in once place). Tested them out in the Mt. Rose Backcountry the next day. Rippers. Each binding weighs 2.2lbs with the baseplate attached - much better than my Burtons. Whew, and so much more streamline.

The total assembly cost was about $120, plus time. Even though it was fun, for the work I'd say talk to Will at http://www.SparkRandD.com.

Here's some pics...

standinginawe, great mod pics and great views on your test trip. Love the color match highbacks to topsheet (is that a L and R in marker on your board to remind you which half goes on which foot? I have the same markings on my bindings/baseplates and pucks...just not so out in the open)

These are soooo rad. Probably have 10+ days on them now andI've had no issues with mine.. even in some warmer days a few days back. I love the feel of these in board mode. No roll and the extra surface area on the board makes it feel way more solid. Because you are closer to your board it feels pretty close to a nonsplit.
In split mode, the setup feels more solid as well as lower.
So far, 10 out 10 but... I wonder how long the HDPE is going to hold out. Hopefully for a long time but there does appear to be some wear.
Buy them! They'll make you split more fun!

ROTFLMAO!!! :lol:

I'm so glad it's not just me!

I spent a week up in OR last week and did some touring and some in-bounds riding at Mt. A where I have a (gulp)..season pass.

The first day I rode my splitty inbounds since I went from hardboots back to softboots and had to dial it in. I felt like a celebrity. Ski patrolman took 30 minutes out of his work to talk to me about the said and told me that he's never boarded, but splittys make him want to try.

Lots of other people over the next few days commented as well. Particularly in the BC behind the mountain (soft boundary all the way across the top).

I was finishing a tour one day at the parking lot when I ran into a slew of parkrats who had built a booter back there, I was still in touring mode as I crossed their runway and one of them yells "siiick! Splitboard!"!

Before I know it I've got a myriad of preteens surrounding me asking for a demo of how it works, of course I offer to show them in exchange for a few boosts off of their jump, and the show ensued.

I'm kind of a glutton for attention so I was feeling pretty cool and popular when I inadvertantly put the back binding on the front slider pucks...all the way.

10 minutes later and the crowd has dispersed back to jumping while I'm still trying to get the baseplate off of the front pucks. :oops:

I said to one of the (merely) 3 remaining audience members that if you're not retarded, the transition really goes much faster. Then one of them looked at me stoicly and said: "yeah, but I'm pretty retarded, I guess I'll stick to hoofing it".

Guess I'm not quite ready for that international ambassadorship of splitboarding to the Chilean Andes now am I?

I lost a nut off my ignitions ladder straps yesterday. Could have really sucked but the strap stayed on the screw while I rode down.

moral of the story:
DON'T FORGET TO PUT LOCK-TIGHT ON YOUR SCREWS

Also, I recommend the high-strength (red) version. It made a noticeable difference on the highback bolts (which see a lot of movement) in my case.

Ok... i'm in the process of getting a new splitboard setup. I've had my Cascade 170 for a while now... I want to get a set of these bindings! However, the list goes on and on... If i put myself up for a pair right now, do you think i'll get them for the next season? Nov. 2008?

Thanks!
