Kinda late to bandwagon as I just now tried Real full 8.06 and I find those awesome.
I like skinnier decks with long wheelbases and and there are not much decks with 14.44 wheelbase under 8 so I opted for Real full and I'm really impressed.
I think I will be using DLX full 8 shape for foreseeable future.

 doom sayers shovel nose board?

I did skate that deck for a while and loved it, but the rounder tail on the T Mo felt a little better, and the width was just narrow enough to ride Ace 44s. I had to move up to 55s on the Doomsayers. Think it was a 8.6"

ah what you rode though is the double shovel version
the (single) shovel nose one is 8.4 and has a round tail just like the AH.

I had a full Krooked Drehobl in 8.06 a year or two ago. It was one of my favourite boards in a long time, 360 flips just clicked again with that shape for me.

Definitely want more small wheelbase short and wide shapes. An 8.5 x 31 with 14.25 or a 14 inch wheelbase would be great.

I agree with the wheelbase suggestion

Idk what to do with my situation cause I have 2 krooked full shapes with the IV numerals and I usually prefer steeper concave but it really doesnít look all too flat and Iím thinking maybe itíll work if the kicks are supposed to be lower which I like/want for the tail to hit the ground faster like those element flat light shapes

Just wish the wheelbases on these werenít 14.4 for a freaking 8.18 and 8.06 width

That is why DLX released full-se shapes, same shapes as regular full but with shorter wheelbases.

Guess that's what the team riders want?

Seems odd....skinnier with longer WB, wider with shorter WB...should be the opposite..

If any of the Deluxe dudes are still monitoring this thread...

The 32"x8.25"x14.38" shape (e.g. the same one as the AH Classic "Larger" Eagle)...I'd love to have that exact shape, wheel base, etc, but in an 8.5". All of the normal 8.5" shapes have a much more rounded nose/tail. The 32"x8.25" shape has a slightly squarer nose and less rounded tail...that would be a kick-ass transition deck, IMHO, if it was 8.5". And, please, do not ever stop making that 32"x8.25"x14.38" shape. It's the best shape/dimensions, ever...just add an 8.5" version, please!

Also, what's up with the royal blue 8.5" eagle? I always see that with a sticker that says "8.5" but it NEVER lists the other dimensions (length & wheel base) like every other Deluxe deck sticker does. I've also noticed that the blue eagle seem to sometimes be different length and wheel base dimensions (e.g. they are not always the same). This does not seem to happen with any of the other eagle decks. What's up with that? It seems odd.

Yeah I have that blue eagle 8.5 as my cruiser deck cause I thought I was a big boy a year ago but nah, itís fun but after 10 min Iím out of jumps. Mine feels pretty good though for an 8.5, I think 32 Forsure and the wheelbase is actually short, like 14.12 I think and it has a full looking shape(full to the rounded nose and tail) thatís the kind of dimension and shape I would of loved for my 8.06 and 8.18 krooked but I guess kids are getting taller these days and need more leg room

^ Yeah, that's the weird thing with the 8.5" eagle. Some have a 14.1" wheel base, and are like 31.8" long. Others have 14.38" wheel base and are 32" (like the one I currently have), and others are 32.5' with a 14.25" wheel base. All over the place. They are also not a true 8.5" width. They come in at like 8.375"/8.4".

True!!! It didnít fit my thunder 149 flush, it was hot dogging a bit much

And I started to think itís proably actually a 8.38

Itís a really good board and I wish it was just smaller, the concave, kicks, and all are almost perfect classic old deluxe the way I liked it but close enough as a good cruiser that works like a regular board for my lazy long distance trips to a friends or whatever

Yeah I noticed when I skated that blue eagle 8.5 back to back. One of them was 31.8 long and 8.5 wide with 14wb. The other deck was 14.5 wb and the tails and nose was really short(bought online)
There is the blue painted graphic thatís usually 31.8 long but there is a blue stained version thatís more standard 8.5 32 long

I fucking LOVE the 8.06 Full with the longer wheelbase. Hope that's not going anywhere anytime soon.

I was skeptical at first but the regular 8.06 just feels too puny now.

The stained eagles were always listed as different dimensions as the painted eagles. The stained were a "one-off" series that hung around for awhile.

I loved the stained blue eagle. It felt more like a standard dlx shape. The painted blue is just short and stubby. I agree the 8.25/8.38 shape is perfect and wish they would just make that a 8.5

That's exactly what it was, and the insane concave on his board is what pushed me towards a flatter Real deck. You really cut to the core of me.

Hockey boards are generator though right?
Keenan had that special ability to make his switch tricks better than his regular tricks but still let you know they were switch.

They use the same wood, but most of their boards are pressed to whatever spec the company wants.

Just ordered the 8.4 shovel nose should be awesome board. Ive had a couple doomsayers there great

let us know how it rides, I was pinning over the 8.4 but the northern co. I bought instead was just too beautiful to pass up

The Real heavyweight 8.38 I'm skating has lasted a lot longer with better pop than the Antihero decks I've skated. I only wish they had a full heavyweight 8.475 x 31 14" wb with the Antihero concave. It wouldn't hurt to add at least one x-band ply in their regular construction decks for longevity and pop purposes.

If they brought back and gave the 8.5 blue eagle the full shape treatment, that would be the dream! Also switching to Aces has definitely helped shortening the wheelbase on longer decks IMO.

Actually I'd rather have that -  the 8.38 i'm riding now with it's 14.6x wheelbase and over 32" is just too fucking long for me.

What would be tits is the Ishod twin tail dims on a non-twin tail full shape. Fucking perfect.

The full shapes are rad, but they are too long for me. I find 32Ē to be perfect. Once itís over 32Ē, it starts feeling longboard-ish, and my stance feels awkwardly wide. That said, a slightly fuller nose/tail on the standard dimensions would be interesting.

I have a 8.25x32 full SE right now, but the 14.25 wb is killing my skating a lil, 14.38 would have been perfect, coming from a 8.38x32x14.5, some tricks like nollie flip backs are clean landing but flip backs are just weirds, maybe a full normal shape is the answer
