I also feel that my ankles get a little more training from riding loose trucks.
You blance more than you do with tight trucks.

I think loose trucks make your ankles stronger too.

I weigh almost 180 and like to skate rails and stairs. I would die from wheel bite every time if I was a wobbly truck rider. My trucks are in the middle, but im heavy enough to skate them like they're loose. Worst feeling to set up for a nollie flip and you're drifting to the right and pop off one wheel.

I ride Ventures and always have the kingpin bolt as loose as can be before being hand tighten-able.  Any bushing suggestions for getting them a bit looser or is that an unachievable goal with Ventures.

Currently skating Indy's with bones mediums and no washers either top or bottom. They've got a decent wobble to em, but nothing like the one bushing two washers wobble. I really like how it feels, just more fun - but I'm an old guy that doesn't really care about tricks anymore.
I reckon I'll get some 44's soon to see what all the fuss is about.

I just stepped up to the two washers, and I gotta say, it's awesome. My bolt has finally stopped falling off too.
If you take medical advice from this puddle of retards you are going to die.

I ride indys with bones soft bushings and the top washer. I don't care if my trucks wobble. I'm a big dude my trucks turn fine.

Stable but responsive, the only way to go. Daewon and Matt Rod are in some realm of skateboarding I may never enter. Seriously... wobbles? I understand loose trucks but shaving bushings, washers? That must be some California shit

I've seen wobble trucks trend heavy lately. I remember some dudes wobbling in the eighties, but it seemed like it was more of a skill set kind of deal, like something you need to grow into rather than trend into. Sound right? I've seen some kids rolling around town that have their trucks entirely too loose for their style/ skill and it appears to be hindering. Must suck for them.

I was lucky to roll with MattRod for a day once upon a time and I quizzed him about his set up. I was floored. It was a 7.5, square nose and tail, with the clickety clack wobble gigs. I tried to push around on it and it was impossible to ride. Ha!

But he skates like a boss. True master.

Venture for life. I'll accept the level of looseness they offer.

I also think having risers helps, gives you a little more room to play with.

A lot of the pool skaters that I looked up to while growing up got me into skating super wobbly trucks. I could never seem to get my trucks as loose as theirs though. One dude told me that he wanted to make spherical or hemispherical (i guess) bushings that would allow wobble but would stay in contact with the hanger the whole time. I wonder if it would work.
SKATE EVERYTHING.
