Hi mates!
Did not write here for a while. So I worried to show my new split. Don't wanna be called a show-off ... But I think we're all show-off's if we show our boards. Aren't we? :D

After several years with good experiences and wonderful runs on a 2006 Abacus it was time for a new one. Again it is an ...

Arbor Abacus 164
Splitted by Wildschnee
Inserted edges on the cutedges between the Yin&Yang-Hooks
Overlapping pucks (my specialty ...)
Burton-style Yin&Yang-Hooks (milled)
Snoli-Inserts for less damage of the core

For more informations please ask user "burton" - he is the master of splitting boards! :bow:

Actually I planned to ride it in the Kootenay's in February, together with "InTheMountains". But too bad, things happen ... I had to cancel the trip. Keep fingers crossed for next season.

I'm a fellow Arbor junkie and I love my split AFrame (thanks Monk!), the Abacus would be sweet as a splitty.
Very cool how burton uses the existing inserts for puck-mounting. Have any pics of the base?
Burton, why did you opt for the Burton yin-yangs instead of Voile's?
Looks good :thumpsup:

base looks and feels perfect.

we prefer the yin&yang-hooks because they are (in our humble opinion) more durable. they don't wear out as much as the voilé split hooks. the board stays significant stiffer for a longer time.

Hey Jogi your board looks good. Where in Germany are you? Where are the good places to ride? I'm here for a few weeks in Germany. I had a few days off and went down to Garmisch one day and Innsbruck in Austria the next. If I have time I would like to get out again, too bad I didn't bring my splitboard though so it will have to be a resort. Anywhere to go close to Kaiserslautern?

hi rob, my base is too far away from the mountains and far away from Kaiserslautern (KL), sorry.
but don't hesitate to ask at www.erstespur.de ... you can even ask in english! no worries. the guys there may help you.
from KL you can drive either down to switzerland, i.e. andermatt (~530 km), grindelwald, muerren (~500 km), davos (~530 km).
or if you prefer austria, I can highly recommend the whole arlberg (stuben, st. anton (~490 km)) or the montafon (silvretta nova/st. gallenkirch (480 km)) to you.

Thanks for the info Jogi, if I get to go again it will only be a day trip so the 1000km+ roundtrips are out. I already did more than that going to Garmisch and Innsbruck.

How do you insert these and do you use them for the skinning bracket and risers?
