I really like this board a lot for pow and would really like to make a splitboard out of it. However, I’m a little apprehensive about splitting it as the end result may not feel anything like the initial board. How much will the splitted version be like the original?March 23, 2007 at 9:08 pm #595427powderjunkieParticipant
The splitted version will have a big cut down the middle. 😉 😛March 23, 2007 at 9:11 pm #595428
Ok i meant in terms of performance you wiseass. =)March 23, 2007 at 11:24 pm #595429snownskateParticipant
Not too pertinent, but how do you like that board?
I have heard it’s pretty soft, which makes me think i’d really like it. I guess that would be my only concern with choppin’ it, if it’s already noodly it could get that much worse.March 23, 2007 at 11:33 pm #595430loneriderParticipant

I will be noticeably softer – knowing Jeremy Jones, I get the feeling the board will be really torsionally soft after being split (won’t respond well in firm conditions).March 24, 2007 at 12:48 am #595431
Yeah I really like the board. It’s got the perfect amount of flex for me to shred, and I really like the tapered design of the board which gives it some float in pow. Plus the pop on it isn’t bad.March 24, 2007 at 4:21 am #595432jaydubmahParticipant
My 2 cents:
I took a lib tech dark series and cut mine down (and also cut 15mm of taper into the final shape). It definitely got softer – probably 20% or so. If you ride lots of pow, then it’s nothing to lose sleep over. Hardpack and ice performance dropped a bit.
Go for it!
