alien 8.5
indy 159 raw
56mm formula 4 99a classics
the size down continues
I have this same deck sitting in the on-deck circle, but your 159's look like a better fit for it than my Thunder 149's. I'm wondering if I should bump up to a Thunder 151's?
i am also pondering whether i should step up to indy 159
instead of my 149ers on 8.5 decks. how do they fit/feel?

159ís with a 8.5 and skinnier wheels feel great. i used to do 875 with 169ís and the .25 extra width of the trucks wasnít noticeable and did not hot rod at all. i like the wider trucks for stability, 149ís just seem kind of squirley

Probably hard to get outside of Finland. No idea what the shipping costs are to elsewhere in the world but knowing Finland, probably outrageous. 🤔

How are you liking the football shape? I've been very interested in trying one of them after the egg shaped boards thread. Does the 8.75 shape skate like an 8.5 the way it tapers? What's the wheelbase like? The new boards weren't up last time I checked the Polar site. Seems like it'd be a lot of fun

The wheelbase on this is 14.375 and feels basically like a normal board. The concave is medium. It tapers down to 8.2 so it feels like 8.25 really. Since it tapers the nose and tails feel slightly shorter.

They feel pretty fucking hard to me. Of course my Spitfires Lock ins feel harder though. They are both 99a. I prefer the SML 54mm over the lock ins on rough ground.

I have been riding the sml Ag formula for a while  They are a good middle ground for me. Not too soft that they Flatspot but not so hard that they rattle your teeth on crusty spots. Plus I hate spit and bones so I stick with them

ITS ME... the answer is me!

Also that city stars deck was heavier than normal. It I had a hard time doing flat tricks, and was not getting any rotation on the like 4 flip ins I know

Iíve had lock-in and they seem way harder which I like maybe itís just getting used to a new wheel which I havenít Done in along time .

SML runs two different formulas and it's confusing as shit. I know what you're talking about, they have one formula that feels slow and sticky. Like soft gum balls. I had a set of Knox travel series that were liked that. Terrible. Then they have the "OG" formula that is legit. I have a set of Suciu "mother nature" series that are amazing. It's confusing and I don't know why they do it.

Some great looking setups on this page. Twist - I've told you this before, I like your approach. You March to the beat of your own drum.

Itís pretty square, but itís kind of tapered so itís not completely flat, itís nice imo
