Adam,
I tried the Cashew last season and this current one, and overall it's a great board.
I found it really easy to ride and with quite a lot of pop, it also floats really well in powder due to its shape while still holding the edge.
I found it a bit slower in transitions from edge to edge than what I'm used to (more freeride-oriented boards), but it's quite light.

I didn't like the skins so much, I guess I'm too used to the extra-grip of the Voile/BD... but they don't seem much different from the G3 Alpinist, and the nose and tail clip work fine.

if you are looking for an all-terrain board, it's a great choice!

about the boots, sorry, haven't tried them.

PeRi
Is the board camber or rocker?
I'm looking at these for our winter in a few months as other manufactures have not supplied me with orders from last year.
Hard to get specs on the board.

Cheers

I'll add a little about the boots, I dont know if they would split weel but I do know that when a (ski) boot it on the stiffer side, It tends not to be awesome for splitters. My skier friend has them and he tells me that they're fairly stiff.

The cashew looks very cool, but I don't know much about it.

Adam,
here are some specs about the board
http://www.splitboardmag.com/06-catalog ... nowboards/

they're from this current year, but they haven't changed anything in the shape, only include a 155 size.
It's rocker -flat-rocker with convex base

In Europe Völkl has a really good reputation, so the sales of the Cashew are pretty good, since it's a good product. Also the price is quite reasonable including skins and voile kit.
How s the reputation there?
I would recomme

I like Volkl, and was interested in buying one, but couldnt find a dealer in the states anywhere? the Specs for the 167W are close to what i am looking for.

Any suggestions?
