People have been snagging up the ones at backcountry.com. It's a sick ride for sure.

I wish they'd hit Amazon. I have $900 in Amazon credit that is burning a hole in my pocket. But, for a split, I would greatly prefer a Heritage or Summit.

The Voile Mojo RX at $895 is starting to look really good.

i ride a 155 2010 SL on the lifts, and i got one of the 158 2012 SL splits... the split is a Heritage in SL skin. not as soft as my solid at all, holds an edge even better... it is the shit.

my solid SL is a jibbing board compared to this... granted its got like 80 days on it, but it was never as stiff or solid as the split is

Yeah, SL split is this year's Heritage split of which I have been riding for the last few months. Great board and is a solid backcountry slayer. I have been having a blast on it. That much is for sure.

Interesting. $1000 seems a bit steep without hardware or skins though.

it doesnt come with pucks or slider plates but it does have touring brackets, tip and tail clips, chinese hooks, and heel bars. pucks an plates new would cost about $100, skins $170 or so if you dont already have any...

yea, there are cheaper ways to go for sure... if you've never splitboarded before i wouldnt run out and get this board.... cut one in half or buy one used first and see if you can stand all the hiking before you drop jack on a cadillac like the SL

Ahhhhhh ok.....the description on Dogfunk makes it sound like it doesn't come with ANY hardware (or even drilled for the hardware, like the T-Rice split). Not as bad of a deal as I thought!

Pretty much on par with what most of the other companies out there are doing. Venture, Prior, etc. Voile is about the only company that's coming in significantly cheaper. Before they decided to make the NS splits production runs, they were $1200.
