After riding the conical full 99a i prefer the classic shape over it.

Radials look good. Wide like the conical fulls but very rounded radius.

fan of the conical fulls.  I like being able to skate a smaller wheel with the riding surface of a larger wheel. 

definitely the best wheel i've skated (99a) for gripping while the skating indoor dust rinks of the midwest

This is exactly what I love about mine, been on them for three months or so and they feel perfect

Ok, I hate to bump a topic that's faded a bit but no better thread to toss this...

All of the snow we got melted over the past couple of days so I skated flat yesterday for a quick 20 minutes. Went to check my board today and saw this...



I don't want to take them back to my shop and be a pain in the ass... shit happens. This was definitely from a rock while trying to "skid out" a couple bs180s. That said, I can definitely feel/hear the "flatspot" and while I know it'll skate down, I paid full price and the wheels have under 5 hrs of riding on them.

Any recommendations? Already bought a set of F1 streetburners to ride but this is a bit disappointing given the hype these wheels have gotten

That isn't a product defect nor is it a flatspot.  What is truly disappointing is the lack of self accountability that is plaguing individuals today.  Learn how to do a proper full 180 and buck up and ride the wheels out.

The radius is a good option if the wheelbite from the conical fulls is a big problem.
Got a set to try.

I rode mine today, lock in to ledges and coping like the conicals but less wheelbite.
I am a fan.

Nice. Love to try them at some point but I now have a stack of Classics and Concical Fulls to make my way through... Nice problem to have , I suppose.

52s the size I skate. Any places online that have them?
Or is DLX just kinda flowing them to people until all the sizes are available?

I know wide wheels are the current trend but it would be sweet to see some F4 Slims come out

Yes.
I've always been one to prefer a slimmer wheel. An F4 in a slim shape would be an insta-buy for me.

Unless I'm riding a 58mm+ or something on a big ass board I don't see the appeal of wide or 'full' shapes.

Regular or slim is fine. Everything else just eats up truck real estate.

Wider wheels are more resistant to flatspots, offer better grip and turn better. That may sound odd but like cars a wider tire offers a better turn. Those of us who skate slippery parks or destroy a set of wheels in a session have learned to appreciate a wider cut.

Yeah I definitely get the advantages for some skaters but for my wider wheels are heavier, take up more room on the hanger, take more effort to slide, etc.

I respect and understand the differences for sure. Have friends that ride the slimmest bones shape and can tell the difference.

Yeah, I skate the Bones V3 which are their slimmest profile.  I definitely prefer F4's though.  I think a slim shape would actually do really well

Think we'll ever see a lock-in F4? This is the shape I always loved for coping. I think the last ones around were some for AVE

Maybe if AVE gets a pro edition like how lance has a conical full one out now, they did F1 lock ins right?

Not a fan of asymmetrical wheels, I try to make my wheels last a long time by flipping them around when they get coned and differently cut sides bugs me.

Radials look good.

Just getting out to shops now, assuming it's january we are all pretty slow now so be a bit before anyone is stocking them.
