I've looked through the search function, but haven't seen any review of the fissile from Prior that are more than a few sentences from a splitfest. Anyone have this ride? Impressions of it with some time on it? It certainly has an interesting shape that has my curiosity!

I'm curious about this one too. I am wonder why they don't split the 161. I will ask them next time I swing by their shop but in the meantime some feedback on the board would be great. I want to know how it works in the woods as well as the steep and deep.
Even though the Fissile has been out for a couple of years. Is Backcountry's Editor Choice just marketing (marketing differentiation and positioning) or a valid review? Why did this year's Fissile get the award, rather than the year before???
I picked up the Fissile Split from REI summer 2012.
I only rode my Fissile about 3 times last year and none of those days were epic powder days.
I would be interested in hearing more reviews about the Prior Fissile Split.
