I did bow summit for my avy course, it was a tough climb, but I could handle doing it again.
The one thing to watch out for is ending up too far down.
As far as Splits, I'm thinking Either a Voile Mojo, or a Venture Divide. Rumor has it that next season, Venture will have rocker splits.
I'm pretty thumbs down on Prior. I have an MFR, and the ride is OK, but the base is super weak.
