Can someone tell me what year the board I have.
e is? And where it was made? And what issues I should look out for. Haven’t ridden it enough yet, or any other splits to have an opinion but I got it for a great price so hopefully she holds up.June 3, 2016 at 2:10 pm #792151ejorddnyParticipant
Hey all – just back from a split trip to Svalbard (wow!), opted to take my Hovercraft Split that really hasn’t seen much use (15/16 east coast didn’t offer much). On day 4, noticed a de-lam on the edge right behind my forward foot, Spark Arcs. Will take it in to the shop and let the Jones rep have a look at it, but no damage to the edge other than normal use scratches so hopeful they do the right thing. I’ll report back.October 11, 2016 at 8:11 am #795348ejorddnyParticipant
So far, no love from Jones. The rep is claiming there is rock damage so the delam is not covered under warranty (they did offer a pro form replacement). The base does have a very minor scratch near the delam that needs ptex, but the edge itself is not dented or damaged in any way. Not sure how to post a pic here. I will try to reach out to Jones Boards directly and see if they can offer a better resolution. My Prior and Never Summers have taken much more of a beating with nothing like this happening.December 5, 2017 at 1:14 am #813691
Hi guys. Few days ago I came across a jones split from 17/18 season with unaligned touring bracket inserts. It was not possible to srew in all 3 screws on a Spark R&D bracket. We tried the same bracket on several other boards and it worked effortlessly. Has anyone heard of such issue with this year’s jones splits?December 5, 2017 at 2:18 pm #813712MR.HartigParticipant
@Pablo – I ran into a similar issue while setting up a friend’s 17/18 Dreamcatcher this past weekend. I found that inserting in the screws fully into the touring bracket before placing the bracket onto the board and turning each screw one turn at a time was able to do the trick for me.December 6, 2017 at 9:00 am #813752Scooby2Participant
maybe just use a round file and stretch the holes out in the touring bracket to where they need to be.December 7, 2017 at 2:36 am #813779December 7, 2017 at 8:14 am #813800Scooby2Participant
Yeah Pablo, if you bought the board new, I would push to have it replaced because an insert out of the pattern is unacceptable at retail price.
Otherwise a touring bracket is like a $25 part I think and pretty easy to customize if you only need a few mm of room for an out of place insert. I have shaved space on a Spark LT bracket from having an insert out of place myself with no issues since.December 8, 2017 at 9:03 am #813833MR.HartigParticipant
If you aren’t too keen on modifying a touring bracket. Reach out the folks at Jones and hopefully they will make things right.December 8, 2017 at 11:37 am #813837
Yes, this is what I am planning to do. I was just curious to hear if anyone else has heard of such issue with this year’s boards.
