Lightbulb Splitting a Jones Mountain Twin? yay or nay

Local gear resale spot has a 2012 Jones Mtn Twin in a 164w for $180 in great condition. I ride a shorter NS Heritage X for in bounds/sidecounty, and really don't want to go back to > 160 for every day riding. But I just got the notion to buy it with the intent to split it. Is this a bad idea? I've got an older 166 Atomic Alibi in my garage I have considered splitting, but have held off because I'd rather have some form of hybrid camber profile on a BC board.

I can probably trade in enough stuff from my garage to bring it down to < $100 cash if I wanted.

Would be used on Mt Hood BC & possibly could get tossed into my luggage for Japan.

That's a great deal for a board. Don't forget split kit costs $140, kit tools/epoxy/prowder, poles, skins, beacon, shovel, probe and possibly split bindings. I've made 5 so if you have questions feel free to ask. Good luck.

I found that by the time you buy everything required, you're at the same cost that you can by a good used factory split in good condition if you keep your eye out for the right deal. If you have a board laying around and want to split it, that's one thing, but I just don't think it makes sense to spend decent money to buy a board with the intention to split it because you're still not gonna have an inside edge for skinning. I paid $400 for my used Venture split in great shape with skins and full kit.

Good point. This has been up for a week or so GONE guy is apparently moving soon. It might be time to low ball him.

Do it! I'd much rather have that than a Jones MT do-it-yourselfer. Hell, that's still a good deal at $300. I'm surprised it's still available.

I'll tell ya this. I'm flying to Portland next Thursday and if you haven't bought it by then it's coming home with me. I can flip that for a profit here in CO easy.

I saw that earlier. I decided to let somebody else get the MTN Twin deal. I picked up an AWD Astro today and am going to put spare funds into making it the Adventure Time Lodge.

You just went from baby G to OG in one purchase. Touché.
