|atr3yu||Omg, so I walked up the summit side of Whitewater today to get my first run of the season...... my legs!!!! I was barely able to get down the hill after the hike. Needless to say that a split is now super high on my list of things to get. On a side note my Berzerker was a beast!|

To get it right you have to make sure the clips are installed in PERFECT location. My DIY has K-Clips that were installed professionally and even so it hulls the base slightly. I'm not saying to stay away from them, just FYI.|

In you area, I'd look for some old circa 2005-07 top of the line Option, like a Northshore, Pintail, they are cambered but the highend ones made in Vancouver were built like tanks with good materials. A local splitter has been begging me for my Northshore 162...shovel-nose pintail that was my first pow board...a very decent pow board for 8" to 14-16" of fresh that does alright on the groomed except for a bit of rear leg burn in the further deep of 18"+; however if you were splitting it for deep poo, you might consider adding a bit of swallow tail cut. But ride it first before you split to see what you think.
On another note: Highly recommend the k clips to put it together.

My CS is a solid, but yeah, no way I'd split it to have as my primary split. If you had one laying around, sure, go for it. But I wouldn't get it to split it.
Oh, and TGR = tetongravityresearch.com, home of some very knowledgeable cats but also a ton of blowhards and djngleberries. Just sort through the bullshit because the good stuff over there is worth it.

However, in variable conditions, it pretty much sucks. It's a dedicated powder board. Not only that, but I don't trust it to hold up. Mine has done just fine, but I only take it out on deep days, so it doesn't take too many hits. Splits take a terrible beating. Split something that'll take it. I just can't imagine a board that light would hold up. The CS is shockingly light. My 164 CS is easily the lightest board I own and I own boards that are 8cms shorter.|

|atr3yu||Well since this topic ended up sparking more interest that I anticipated I was wondering if anyone had any opinions on boards I should be keeping my eyes out for over the up coming season? I am thinking of trying to finding something with some sort of hybrid camber at least. Clearly I am not going to be to super picky as I will just be deal hunting, but knowing what to look for would be good ^_^|
