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

yep

mine are badly chunked and doesn't look like they're getting replaced... i think its down to Shiner Dist (UK) rather than DLX, but still, probably means i'll be going back to bones which is a shame as i loved the feel.

Rode my old setup with the 99's today and I can honestly say that they are the best wheels ever. They felt so much better than the Bones I got for my birthday and they slide just as good. I'm back on those for sure.

I'm excited.  I'm finally moving back up to south bay so I'll be making plenty of trips to the city (and DLX).

I'm still lurking.

The SFW's are very close to production, I still can't give a release date, but they ARE coming.

Thank. you. 
When you are resolved from the beginning, you will not be perplexed, though you still get the same soaking. This understanding extends to all things.

Ever since the F4s came out I pretty much just go back and forth between the F4s and STFs ; I'll get STFs, then after they wear out I'll buy F4s, and so on and so forth.
I did however buy a set of 53mm shop wheels on a whim earlier in the month; worst decision ever. They're so sluggish and laggy feeling, if that makes sense, and they almost feel a bit too rubbery. Luckily a friend of mine gave me a set of used F4 101As (54mms but they're more like 51mms now), probably gonna squeeze a few more sessions in with the shop wheels, then maybe hand em down to a homie who's in need of wheels, and then set up the F4s. I'm never making that mistake again.

Hopefully formula 5 or 6 gets better, seeing all these mega flatspots. Noone has shit on bones after all these years

I flatspoted some Bones STF. Not to the point where you can see it, but you can feel and hear it. Good excuse to retire them and get some SFW's.

I flatspot bones all the time, but never to the point where they're unrideable. You can roll the flatspots out pretty easy

i skated both. the 99a's are really grippy right when you set em up, don't really need to break em in. after 5 months i noticed small bits of the wheel came out- no difference in how they performed. amazing wheels. the 101a's were super slick at first, once i broke em in they were really well..pretty solid and strong. so basically the difference i noticed was you didn't need to really break in the 99a's

101s were pretty slippy at first.
I've heard 99s are the way to go but I like being able to powerslide at a moments notice.

the 99s powerslide just fine. They feel like how Spitfires should feel like. The F4 99s remind me of the classics back in the 90s when Spitfires were unfuckwithable...

i like the 101's but i am finding them to be kinda too slidey on certain ground. i had the 99's before in full shape and they were too grippy, but now im wondering if its cus of how wide they were? i dont really wanna go back to streetburners, even though 100 duro is nice, but would it be worth it to try out the 99's in classic?

had the exact same problem when i first tried out the 101's but in my opinion the 99s in the classic shape is like the perfect wheel. they slide well when you want them too but isn't nearly as "slippery" feeling on smoother ground as the 101's were in my experience.
