How do the SFWs feel? Never had a pair of Spits and the only shape I've ridden is the bones stf  v2, want to branch out.

if you want a nice wide wheel then give them a shot,  SFWs are the wheel shape i wanted before i even knew i wanted them, a lot of wheel surface thats actually rolling along the ground, when they wear down they get even squarer, never had any problem locking into grinds with them and they still feel pretty light. Gonna grab a set of the grant taylor swirl ones once theyre out and mix and match them with some manderson whites. overall they're my favorite wheel ever  :-*

Got some Bones STF's for my birthday. They feel pretty shitty compared to Spitfire. Gonna ride them out anyways, but I'm looking forward to getting some Classics after that.

I've never had the SFW's, what is it about them that you all love? I'd like to try a pair.

nice and wide and stable, all terrain wheel shape. i found it harder to slappy with em tho, but it was a nice change. now i stick with the classics

I love the SFW shape, it's so good. I can't imagine how great it'd be in the f4 formula.
Any feedback or release date would be much appreciated.

They are indeed wide, i like them a lot.
These arent marked for a durometer but they slide well and feel like the 99's.
No word on a release date but if samples are out then the release shouldnt be to far out.

I've been skating classics pretty much exclusively for the last ten years.  So I have to ask, what are the benefits of different shaped wheels?

I had some wide Bones DTFs that looked like that after they wore down. They sucked for grinds because they ate up a lot of hanger real estate, especially on an 8" truck.

Theres no real benefit i would think, personally i just like the feel of more wheel on the actual ground and the wider profile looks/feels more stable than the classic shape too me

Do they grind differently?
Keenan had that special ability to make his switch tricks better than his regular tricks but still let you know they were switch.

In my opinion I have noticed it helps with locking in grind tricks

Agreed, any wheel with a flat edge locks in way better vs a radius cut that releases from coping,ledges etc.
Most people just like the aesthetic of the sidecut i think, because if you check the actual riding surface they are usually close.

I'd go with the 99's if I were you. I've had both and the 99's seemed to be the best all around. You get a good grip, but still can do powerslides and whatnot. 99's are the best.

i havent tried the 101s but i havent had a problem with the 99s skating Roosevelt, Red or Fremont parks. Also skating some street downtown SJ and some other random spots has been fine, good slide and lots of control i love em.
Man the long board truck thing killed indy for me. I was willing to set aside the racism, but long boarding, gtfo... - DH

That's either a MASSIVE powerslide FS or you did it deliberately.

The board probably got run over by a car or something.  That's way too big of a flatspot.
