Would you say these are closer to the old indy stock bushings? You know, the ones that didn't used to be shit :D

The current stock Indy bushings are 88a.  The old stock bushings were 90a.  So basically if you want to match the old bushings, you'll want to get the Orange "Medium" aftermarkets.  To match the current stock Indy bushings you'll want to get the Red "Soft" bushings.

Also, if you'r running 149's I suggest getting the cylinder bushings.  Conicals are fine in 139's but you'll get wheelbite in 149's

And just to state the obvious, if you get stock white bushing they are 78a!

Thanks, basically I just want my indys to turn/ feel how they used and bones isn't cutting it. I know this is pretty much a SLAP sin but I rock 129s :-X

Nice!  The conicals are great in 139's so i imagine they will be in the 129's.  if you still have issues, i'd go softer.  smaller trucks have less leverage so you need softer bushings

I wish they kept the 8.38 size. I love the shape on that size...i wonder if they have it on similar sizes/different graphics. Can anyone confirm?

yeah it's an 8.25. i was only expecting to see the all white/all black colorways too, but then these showed up. they are allegedly pretty limited so i might not end up skating it.

Picked this up last week, 8.125" (measures out but feels like an 8.25" to me)
Nose shape is really nice, concave is on the deeper medium side and the kicks are nice, tail is pointyish.
Pretty disappointed overall tho; skated it less than 4 hours and it's already down to the third ply. Felt DOA too. Live and learn (and back to bloodwizard); keeping it as back up.

if it's not possible, does anyone know where I can get one?

Aah, shit. I'm in europe and the shipping is usually even more expensive than from the states... Plus the boards are more already.

Good looking out though, thanks!

These boards are in great shape, not warped at all. Think I'll save the Montoya and ride the Petersen.

Blood Wizard
Heiresses of Countess Bathory
8.125" x 31.5"



I don't know why I bother trying other decks other than to reaffirm how much I love Blood Wizards. The shapes are magical, super thin plys so they are very very light yet very strong and super stiff; I don't know how they do it.

I've skated 15 different boards in the last year from a lot of different companies, different wood shops, various sizes, etc and the Sovrn deck has by far been the best.  The dimensions are absolutely perfect for me.  Nice long wheel base, long nose and tail and that "two fingers" of flat that Schmitt talks about.

All around the best board that I've ever skated so I picked up a couple backups

Width - 8.38"
Wheelbase - 14 3/4"
Tail - 6 3/4"
Nose - 7 1/4"

Also I wanted to try out the new Ricta NRG wheels after hearing good things from Xen.  Each pro model has a unique shape, the Westgate's are super slim at 27mm wide (Slimmer than Bones V3 and sml slims) and have an almost square/tablet profile

Two sheets of trusty Mob M-80 for the new decks when they're ready

Where'd you get this Windbreaker?

Subversions Skateshop in Sacramento, CA. Only 100 made and only sold in shops.

Look motherfuck, I just want to buy my "Purple Drank" shirt and get the fuck out so I can get home in time to steal some Virginia Slims from my mom before she gets home from work.

They're from PS Stix.  I was anti-PS for a long time but this board changed that.  Never got soggy, never chipped, just a solid board with nice dimensions

What's the deal with M-80?? My friend was telling me it's just less-grippy than regular MOB. More like a Jessup feel??
