Thanks for the link, I'm thinking of using an old Ride kink as a donor since I don't have the heart to cut my '04 Ride Havoc up since i ride in hardpack and it's still a contender lol.

159... I'd sell it to you and grab a used 167 off ebay to chop up. You know it's a wide board right?

The Kink is kind of super flexy to be your BC board... and I'm guessing you've got a pretty small one. (Most people don't buy 167cm jibsticks)

I figure I'll build a split board, buy a 167/172 Prior w/ hard boots as a carving board, keep my Kink for effing around, my Zeppelin as my all mountain weapon....stop me when I'm getting carried away.

Eck. Floater is not a good candidate for chopping due to Burton 3 hole set up (metal inserts in the way). We'll talk at the meet....

Actually the metal inserts shouldn't be a big deal. You need to get a blade that can chop through steel edges anyway. An insert will be nothing.

My concern was more with the holes where the inserts used to be becoming weak spots. I suppose I could just leave the halves in and epoxy them or something.... Or maybe they'll stay in anyway? Not sure how wide the cut would be. How wide are those carbide blades?

Edit.. hmm... after a quick google search, looks like the carbide blades are pretty thin.

You're over analyzing it. After you cut the board in half you have to epoxy the hell out of the inside edges anyway. From what I understand it's the longest part of the process. The core just sucks up the epoxy, so you have to get a ton in there to protect that edge. Most carbide blades I have seen at Home Depot are pretty much the same size as regular saw blades. Again, I wouldn't worry about it. Plenty of DIY Burton splitboards out there.
