I got one before last year for really cheap. I believe it was an 09 model. It was ok. A bit stiff. I rode a 153 and I was 145-150lbs. Not playful at all but nice to ride down the mountain in. It was my first board, bought before I learned how to ride. It probably was not the easiest board to learn on, but I did, and here I am.
For freeriding, it's perfectly fine IMO. Although my opinion shouldn't carry much weight. I now have a Never Summer SL I just bought and rode once, and it is much more playful than the Split T.
