I think I'm going to pick up some new wheels for the spring sometime soon. I'm on 99s right now, but what are peoples opinions on the 101s? Are they better for the streets?
Haven't tried the 99's but I'm riding the 101's right now. They super good so far (had them for about 3 months). They are amazing all around, they slide on command and grip when you need it. My only problem is that I was hill bombing and did a powerslide and slipped out backwards and hit my head. They slide a lot! I'll probably get the 99's so I don't slip out anymore. But overall they are the best wheels I have ever ridden.
Damn you gonna change your name now or what?
Couldn't figure out how to change my name, so I made a new account! Hey dudes!

Hey how are the 99's for park wheels?  i always ride the parkburners but wonder if i could use something a smidge faster. 

a while back i tried to switch to 101's and was sliding all over the place

Having ridden parkburners, street burners, classic 99s, hardlines, f4 101/99s, I can say the 99s are the best all around wheel spitfire makes.
They arent soft, super fast grip and the right amount of slide and I've had minimal issues with chipping/flatspots. And if you do deluxe takes care of it instantly.

I mostly skate parks and I love my 99s. Good grip, fast, slide when I want em to.

I've felt no need to skate the 101 F4's after trying out 2 sets of 99s.  No flatspots, no complaints.
I guess if you like a harder wheel, or is more used to a "slippery" wheel, 101s would be good too.

Been skating the 99s I'm on now for 6 months, and they look like shit, have chips out of them, and are super small but still skate like they're brand new. Best wheels ever.
damn those yarys bout those squats

funny how some of you on here skated both prefer the 99s.. had the 99s for 3 months.. set up the 101s for about a month and put my old 99s back on. yeah the 99s are a good all around wheel in my experience.

Does Spitfire make Formula 4s in the SFW shape?
Keenan had that special ability to make his switch tricks better than his regular tricks but still let you know they were switch.

Are they not going to make the f4's in Full or Tablet shapes anymore - didn't see these styles in the new teal/orange, only classic shape.
See below
Bumping this, anyone know when full shape or SFW formula fours will be around, got a set left but don't wanna burn through them if it'll be a while until new ones are around

Taking longer than expected.
No definite date.

sorry dudes.

I think I got some defective ones. Got the 101's for Christmas and have only skated an indoor park once or twice a week for the past month and a big chunk just came outta them last night. My previous ones ran me from April to this winter, and even then they still had life left.

Open question, i never skated the street burners when they came out, found a set of SFW streetburners, how do they go comparable too the F4?

When I first learned how to powerslide it was when the F1's came out.  They flatspotted really easily so I switched to bones.  I'm guessing the formula for F1's has changed over the years but if it's anything close to what they were before, I wouldn't bother.  Plus, they're coming out with SFW F4's anyways, I would just wait

Thanks man, i figured id try a set anyway, if they're shitty its no big loss, still going nuts waiting for these F4s though.

Been skating the 99's for the winter, mostly indoors. I flatspotted them and took a big chip outta one last weekend. Whats the conditions in which you should contact DLX? The flatspot isnt one of those roll-out flattys, its pretty squared off.
