Progression requires experimentation. I want to build diy boards with no tnuts. Tele bindings for years only had three screws per binding and people, but skis are beefed up in the mounting area. If I add another layer of glass where the touring bracket goes I think it will do the trick.

Side note, my first split snaped across the touring backet while skinning through a dip. The board had an "air core" where the core has channels milled out between the bindings not good for a split but I didn't know untill the board was cut. It lasted three years.

I built a dynafit soft boot this summer so a different hole patern is needed.

dont care much about the condition of the base, by the time i choose to saw a board in half the base it usually pretty beat, riding in montana is not kind to boards lots of sharp basalt and a thin snowpack.

its more about the time and cost of installing the tnuts, if you are only building one board it doesnt mater much if your building a bunch it gets old.

sorry for the thread jack, diy splitboard class is a good thing you can ruin a board if you dont know what your doing, especially installing tnuts. Use a fostner bit with a adjustable stop, and press the tnut in with a vice instead of hammering. west systems 610 thickend g flex epoxy is your friend.
