Posted on

so my buddy gave me a mint condition 167 Burton FL project and told me I could split it. I know the FL was the top of the line model about a decade ago. I don't know about the core and how well it will split, although if I remember, the FL project had some carbon stringers and a weird hybrid core. Any ideas on if this board will split well? Just found out it is from the year 2000.

Hey there, I am not exactly sure about that model/year but I have split many snowboards over the years,, and can say that if it does have a strange hybrid core, it probably has foam... this just needs to be taken into consideration when cutting/drilling/etc as you need to adjust pressure for the softer foam... you also might have to get creative with some epoxies... check us out if you would rather have someone else split it...
