This might be a good resource for splitboard shoppers:

http://www.splitboardmag.com/splitboards-olive-oz-phenix/

Splitboard magazine has published its (incomplete) directory of 2013 / 14 production splitboards. There are some obvious omissions (like Donek) but also brands and shapes rarely if ever mentioned on these forums.

Technical data on each deck is woefully lacking, but this may be a good resource for people to identify shapes and general specs that they might learn more about at each manufacturer's website.

Note that if you are shopping, you can buy many of those decks through this website also (look to your left: Shop), and in so doing support splitboard.com, which, if you are here reading this, is something to consider.

Taylor,
We didn't feature every board of every manufacturer, but we tried to feature every manufacturer that we could find that produce splitboards regularly and they offer them in their line-ups, not custom builders like Donek as you mention, First Light and more. I personally love this custom manufacturers but we had to make a decision about it.

We wish we had more space to talk way more about each board and about their specs and technical data, but it was already large enough doing it this way! 38 manufacturers are way too many to say too many things about them!

As you mentioned, we would like to be a good resourse, some kind of overview and first impressions about boards, and if you want to know more, you can get deeper into it going to each manufacturer's site.

I liked seeing the basic info that each manufacturer builds to. You get a lot of quick info in a very short period of time and sorts out the obvious shapes you aren't really looking for anyways. Thanks for the link.
