There is a way to adjust the tables to avoid any snipe. Raise the cutterhead all the way up. Set a straightedge on the planer bed. Adjust the far ends of the infeed and outfeed tables slightly upwards. Raise them until you can just slip a dime under the middle of the straightedge.
This will solve snipe for boards up to 6’ long. Any longer than that, and you will need some outfeed support.
It is a great planer, I think you will be pleased.

Good luck.
