    I’ve decided to get a new split and am on the fence between a Prior Backcountry and a Never Summer T5.

    One of my big concerns is weight since about 95% of my time on my split is in the uphill direction. According to Prior’s website, the Backcountry will save me 3 lbs compared to the Burton I’m on now. But whenever I pick up a solid NS it feels like an anchor. Could someone out there PLEASE weigh their NS T5 (preferably a 165 cm) with or without bindings, and let me know what it weighs?

    And for what it’s worth I’ve done my research and read loads of posts about each one. I’ve formed the opinion that NS is nearly bombproof and is of great quality while the Prior may have some issues as far tip/tailhooks being spaced incorrectly, and some inserts not being flush, etc. I think the Prior probably has a shape that is better suited to me though.

    I had to call neversummer to find out the weight of one of their boards. They guy weighed it for me while I was on the phone. Their 162 split stick is 7.9 lbs (3.6 kg). That MUST be without hardware.

    The 165 T5 is 8.5lbs naked.

    I snowboard for the ride down but I SPLITBOARD for the ups AND downs. And the downs are a lot more fun if my quads aren’t cramped from the approach.

    I’m sure my next resort board will be a NS but I need to put a lot more thought into my next splitboard purchase.

    Thanks Bently.
