Forums Splitboard Talk Forum Board Recommendation?? Reply To: Board Recommendation?? December 17, 2005 at 3:56 pm #584723 dkg1976 4 Posts Hey Redux, I was in the same boat as you a few weeks ago. So many choices and none of them are cheap! After lurking this board and asking a couple of questions about splits I ended up with the voile 178 swallowtail. Like you I don’t ride in the spring (mtn biking and climbing season for me!) and I don’t ride super steep very often. I live out in CO and if I am in the backcountry I am in powder. I ride a 165 inbounds and was worried about the length and different style of the swallowtail. Took it out last week for a hut trip and it is amazing!! I haven’t ridden it alot but the thing really performs in powder and wind crust, and I can still throw it around when riding the luge track back to the car. When I was deciding I even called Voile and talked to a guy that rides the swallotail, they were super helpfull. Just my two cents, I think you will be pleased with whatever you get. I mean a splitboard, powder how could you not have a great time. Good luck with your choice!
