Hey Dudes, thanks for all the feedback so far! -Really appreciated!

We have something pretty cool in the works for this thread that I'll post soon enough...

First off we have a couple of specific questions for you that will help us get ready for that next step:


 1.     Please give only one answer: What is the main factor for you in deciding on a shape? Length, width, or wheelbase? wb

 2.     Would it help to have more specific and measurements visible on the packaging of each board? (e.g. Nose/Tail width) yes

 3.     How would you feel about our boards having a more simplified shape guide, where each shape has a specific name or more basic shape         code? I would love that

 4.     What length of wheelbase do you prefer? 14.5

 5.     What is your end-all-be-all dream shape? 8.25 x 32 (14.5wb)

Thanks guys!

A mellow 8.25 x 32 with 14" WB would be killer.
Keenan had that special ability to make his switch tricks better than his regular tricks but still let you know they were switch.

I wasn't joking! After seeing the 8.25" Full LowProII Brock (whichI kinda want) it got me thinking.

hard to say, I def like between 8.25-8.5 with a squarish tail 14.25wb maybe a slightly stubby nose medium concave

Finding stubby noses is difficult, check out Lifebloods, noses are still big but the noses don't feel like giant spoons (which I loathe); for PSTIX their boards are MUCH heavier, could be the plys they choose, those guys are all terrain killers.

Thanks for the tip.

Hey Dudes, thanks for all the feedback so far! -Really appreciated!

The Raney Beres boards are the only exception. Skating the dingbat board now. Length is great, but its kinda narrow.

Thanks a lot for doing this Lenny and anyone at deluxe, pretty cool of you guys![/b]


Can you post a pic of the topside if the dingbat?

Getting to thinking some shorter boards would be great for us relatively short and/Or weak legged people across all widths. 

Something like 8.5 x 31.8 with a 14.25 wb would be cool.

Saw that there's an Anti Hero 'Bino board coming out with 8.43 x 33 15'wb on Instagram...As far as I'm concerned these are the PERFECT DIMENSIONS!!! Please don't let this be some kind of one-off deal.  I'll be buying as many as I can get my hands on. 


wheee!

Ok

This thread is an amazing example of why dlx is cool. Anyways...I've been blubbering about trying to find a short, fat shape. There was the legendary drehobol shape, I didn't ever have it, but I thought it was prized for being shorter. Dlx doesn't have many short boards, I have short, legs, and have been trying to find some shorter stuff. So currently length is the most interesting measurement, for me. I appreciate width, length, and wheelbase measurements on boards. A shape naming system is also cool, but I see how that could be problematic for dlx and for shops.

If the two truck companies that dlx owns, extend the wheelbase, why are more the offerings longer, and with longer wheelbases? The 'full' shapes in an 8", look to be perfect for me (a little long) if I was using Indys. I've been riding thunders and ventures more often lately, and they do 'great' for me, on the shorter wheelbases of ps stix and such. Lots of blatherings.

Felt like dlx boards where the best in the industry for quite awhile, and I never hesitate to grab one, I personally have ps stix boards lasting longer lately. Did dlx change its wood/glue? Razors a touch faster, not quite as hard/stiff/ poppy as I think it was.

 Continue to do what's working, I'll continue to support as things are

Was just looking at the Real Fall drop 2 catalog. HUF has a reissue board in the catalog. It says that it has Huf's own mellow concave as its shape. Does anyone know if this is different the the normal DLX mellow concave? The caption would imply it is. Any details?

Mike-Mo is going to be one of the best if not the best skater of his generation. Barring some kind of career ending injury or drug addiction.

Length

 2.     Would it help to have more specific and measurements visible on the packaging of each board? (e.g. Nose/Tail width)
adding wheelbase would be cool

 3.     How would you feel about our boards having a more simplified shape guide, where each shape has a specific name or more basic shape         code? Shape guide, and then code would be cool.

 4.     What length of wheelbase do you prefer?
14.12-14.25, flexible tho, embrace the options

 5.     What is your end-all-be-all dream shape?
Less than 32", 14.25 ish wheelbase, width doesn't matter much to me. Baker b-16 is great. As others have mentioned: shorter noses! If the length subtracted from the nose was added to the wheelbase, just a theory, results would be favorable. Basing this off of growing up skating whale tailed boards that were short, but super stable do to longer wheelbases. For whatever it's worth, a nollie is maybe my favorite trick, just doesn't require a 7"+ nose for me

i noticed that the newest dlx boards come with roman numerals stamped in the top sheet. i'm guessing that has something to do with the concave? i usually go for the 8.25/B325 shape, but i wasn't aware that it may come in different concaves. i just picked up the HUF NY re-issue, i'm on the daan first board right now, i hope they're pretty similar.

I have a friend who works for DLX who posts a lot of real interesting shapes on his IG a lot that I've only seen a few of available so far. They're all real DLX brand boards with graphics and everything, not prototypes, so it looks like there are going to be a lot more options coming up.

I've been skating with this dude who has this ~9.5" Powell Peralta Ripper set up and that shit is so much fun. I gotta get a big fast board like that.

Damn i hadn't seen that either..  I've noticed a bunch of different shapes popping up from dlx.  They're making longer 8.5's with a longer wheelbase.

I'm drooling over that B.A. board, hope it fits my criteria.  Looks like the raney board but a little bigger?? I would buy 5 of them

I'm into it. Talking about skating equipment/obsessing about skating equipment are some of my favorite things to do.

The standard 8.25x32 has always been good to me. I've skated more of those than any other shape in the past 4 or so years... I just picked up an 8.25 full size to set up this weekend, really excited about trying the different shape. I've been watching "Sick Boys" alot lately too, so seeing all the old Jimmy, Tommy, and Mick-E footage has got me extra hyped on Deluxe. Can't stress how hyped I am for the Huf re-issue mellow also. I always wanted "A Real Huf board" for Christmas.


Edit: I may even set one of the trucks up backwards :)
