    You'd have to ask someone that has used them. I simply posted the article and video for all to see. :)

    Hi Josh,
    I had the opportunity to ride my Arbor Abacus split board at Mt Hotham last season, just to see how it handled.I am happy to say I absolutely loved it, great fast base, excellent edge control. I hadn't noticed much difference apart that the split is slightly stiffer and handles speed a lot better.

    Split boards will handle groomers with a tad of chatter about wtf is he riding this crud. Don't do rails but sometimes put a sneaky thru the booter line. Haven't ridden a solid for a couple of years, resort or bc, here NZ and Japow

    Splits have come a long way in recent years. Swapping between my solid and split there is no discernible difference (same manufacturer and board size/shape)
