I really whant to try splitboarding and i have been trying to make some desicions

first off a shop in town will split a board for 150 dollars im not sure if they put an edge on the inside or not but if not would this be a big disadvantage?

Second I tend to nail some gnarly rocks and my board is totaly trashed :banghead: ..what split board has a really hard base and strong edges?

If i buy a real splitboard it seems like there is less options as far as base type,width, length. magna traction, banana flexibility...ect . is this true ..would it be better to buy a Reg board

I have more Questions that i will ask later i can think of them all right now.

Not having the inside edges sealed is bad, so if they won't at least seal it with epoxy, I'd pass.
If you have a lot of specific tweaks you like on a board I would probably buy that board and then have customsplitboards.com do the deed.
Then again if you are riding a lot of rocks, that might be a lot of coin to drop.

In the long run, a pre-built split from Voile is the least expensive option. If you have something about a board that you really like, then getting a custom split by Monk or someone else is still well worth it. I would only go to a shop if they can show you examples of their work. Better yet, they should be willing to provide the board AND split it, and give you the option of turning it down if they do a crappy job.
