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.
