wouldnt the millimeter or so that the sawblade turns into dust make the board feel different? I am not sure as to how much a waterjet would remove though, so the difference might be negligible.
Yeah, the little bit of board removed in the middle really is negligible. Anytime you split a board, you're gonna lose some torsional rigidity. There's just no way around it.
