Splitboard setup

So I got a jones carbon solution as a board. I don't know what bindings I want for sure. I'm leaning to the sparks magneto. Does anyone have early experience with them or an opinion on sparks overall? I like the Karakoram but they are fn pricey.

Also, thinking I should just make my son a board this season with the voile setup since he will likely grow out of it. Opinions?

I have the SLs on my hover split and really love them.

I am a Vermonter living in California showing the locals how to keep it real!

Sparks afterburners and no problems but the magneto look slightly more convenient but waiting to check them out...perhaps if I can sell the afterburners.

The Tesla system bindings are pretty sweet. Played with them a bunch at SIA. One of my touring partners took a set out on Red Mountain Pass at split fest and said they were great.

Since your son is still growing, I'd go with plates for him. Use a metal based binding if at all possible.

I am hoping to have some afterburners next week.

spent most of last year on the magnetos (perks of splitting in bozeman), a little quicker and less fiddling than with the pins, New climbing bars are really nice, better edge pressure when side hilling, two heights is nice. never been on the Kara's.

That was my first thought with the climbing bars. You are the second person that I know who has said this. Pretty psyched for 'em.

Curious how there is better edge pressure while side hilling?

Pretty obvious, no? The climbing bars on the Teslas are wider than traditional climbing wires (more or less the width of the ski), putting the pressure right over the edge (as opposed to over the center of the ski).
