DLX discontinued the F4 tablet for the SFW F4

I bought some f4 a couple of days ago and have had quite a few chunks come off. They also are cracking in a few places. I love the way they feel, but I was wondering if this is normal for them. I only skate my local park and I'm not to hard on them. I know this sounds silly but I'm kinda bummed on the quality and don't want to go back to Bones.

That's not normal, I had a similar problem with one set of the 101 and they were replaced with 99s when I sent them in. Which I was quite pleased with btw, thanks nate!
I've hated immigrants ever since I got here.

is there another shape for F4 99A wheel for the upcoming drop besides the classic and SFW? a tablet or SFslightlylesswide would be nice, but maybe thats just me...

Classics aren't exactly narrow.

Near as i can tell, the conical standard would be the middle ground and the conical full is the SFW

I tried a set of parkburners on someone elses board the other day and they felt way too narrow now ive been on conicals for ages, locking into things seemed easier with the squarer wheels, i can't wait too see how these new ones work out

sick! thanks for the feedback.. does spitfire still do the "lock in" wheels- which are like the conical but only on one side?

Both sets of mine (51mm and 53mm, both 99's) did that to me, I sent the 53's in for warranty but haven't heard back yet, only been 5 or so days.
I'm riding stf's right now and they show no signs of this.
Have a set of wreck's to try next.

I have to admit they slide extremely well and I can't flat spot them. Since they started to chip my friends and I have purposefully tried to flat spot them with no damage whatsoever. I'm sure Deluxe will work out any kinks with the chipping problem over time. If it cost me a little extra money for new wheels then it is worth it. I was riding my friends board with Bones Spf and they didn't feel good at all. I love to be able to do quick power slides without to much effort. The reason I started riding Bones was that I started to skate parks mostly and the concrete was killing my wheels. Also I think as I get older I dwell to much on gear and start to notice things I wouldn't have when I was younger. I skated so much that my stuff would wear out before I could notice any imperfections. It seems now I'm looking for a skateboard product equivalent of the fountain of youth. If I find that concave, wheel, or shape I will get my old tricks back! Thanks for your feedback and have a great day everybody!

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, too, am looking for the holy grail ;) Seriously, I'm the exact same way and I'm VERY close.

8.5"x32.5" + 14.75/15" WB, Fat nose and tail (like Anti Hero shapes but not anti hero dimensions) - Anyone give me a brand like that that isn't elephant?
Theeves for street ACEs for bowls
Spit F4s - classics for now but I think that conical my be the clincher - I've always hated the STF feel and autobahns don't slide like the F4s.

Not sure on the wheelbases or shapes, but the rest of the dimensions are there.

F4's 5 months of use
once 54mm classics 101 duro, now they're 40 something and tablets
never had a problem and still roll smooth
f4's rule



I just want everyone to know that I'm only 32.8% skateboarder, and that's on a good day. The rest is just soy and cum.

not quite to the specific dimensions, but Anti-Hero (and real, krooked) have an 8.43 with a 32.57 length and a 14.75 wheelbase.  It's pretty much the only board I can ride at this point, everything seems tiny in comparison.  the 0.07 is not noticable
