    Hello!

    My name is Janne. I´m wondering if it´s anyone who tried to split a supermodel.
    The supermodel is pretty soft, and i´m worried that it will get to soft after cutting it?
    Another problem is that 8 out of 12 inserts are in the center of the board.
    Is´t best to cut the board 5 mm from the center or shoud i cut right through them and fill them up with glue?

    Thanks!

    A carbide blade will make short work of those inserts IF you cut through them SLOWLY. What/if you fill them is another personal question only you can answer. At this stage though, I recomend forgoing the ski screws and inserting the board for the pucks. If you don’t and crash, you run the risk of delamination of the top sheet/core from the forces, even in a mild wipeout. Don’t ask how I know.
