Over the years I have ridden allot of boards with inserts. ALLOT! From the days prior to a standardized insert pack up until last weekend riding a board repeatedly used for prototyping systems. I can state that I have never broken a snowboard on an insert. I have pulled a few inserts, but they were all original manufacturer inserts. It is critical that they be installed properly.
I would argue that in some cases they are in fact stronger than original. Good mechanical decisions must be made in the process. I.E. Don't place 8 inserts in a row across the running length of a board. At 250lbs I think I am placing a substancial force on the inserts?
The Sims Burner 197cm doesn't have inserts where I needed them for a plate.
