Just gotta go stand on them.  My crude logic that I've used since 1997 is to put them on the floor and assess by seeing how easy it is to balance a nose manual, then crouch down in ollie position and see if the concave puts pressure in any direction that pitches me off my center line, and then blindly position my rear foot on the tail and see where it puts for scooping and popping.  That covers how I would skate it and how natural it would feel shifting my feet into all positions.  Not super precise since the trucks aren't on it, but much easier than nerding out on dims, getting a deck, and realizing it doesn't skate how you'd think.

Has Anti Hero changed the shape of their 8.25/14.38 WB boards in the last year? Since fall '17, noses has seemed more square than previously (fan of the change btw)...

Since my "return" to skating, I have gone through a Four Pillars Anderson and Eagle with the same dimensions...definitely an all day vape on both of those.

What is the "full shape"? I am about to get a new deck and saw that as an option.

Full shapes maintain their width through the nose and tail.  They donít taper.
and get an old bum from the street to be the referee for one game, should be interesting

Any Full Shape zealots switch back to non-fulls? How'd that go? Been on Full shapes for the last 5 decks or so but tempted to go to regs real (for the 14.38 WB).

Ive been riding the 8.06 full and when I went back to a regular it just felt small. It's probably more of a perception thing (except for the wheelbase) but I missed the feeling of a bit more meat.

That's what I'm afraid of, especially in the tail (and the regs reals being much more tapered)...but man, I'm wanting this one:

Do all Anti Hero's have the IV concave? I just got a flying rat and my friend the navy eagle logo and both had the IV roman numeral on them.
Keenan had that special ability to make his switch tricks better than his regular tricks but still let you know they were switch.

No AH has all six. Double check when at the shop.

The IV means 4th deck in the press.....DLX does this....I believe it means least concave no?

Correct, bottom deck in the press is the steepest, marked with I (Roman 1), only ever skated a II since this was info was posted.

i think they have different concaves depending on the size or model of the deck, i have 2 krookeds marked IV and one  of them has significantly steeper concave
I can see why people think Slap is a bunch of retards; multiple people think Menikmati is the worst skate video of all time?

I've been happy with the classic eagle in the 8.25, 8.5 and 8.75 widths.

The last real I had was a Busenitz where the cop car was crashing (8.25 I believe).  Great shape as well.



I guess what I am getting at is, how many people at Deluxe have Pug dogs?
I like my women the same way I like my personified cups of coffee...black...strong...and proud.

I believe this too.....so unless it's the same model, the numbers only tell you so much.....

This is something Iíve pondered, maybe Lenny could shed some light. Do all the boards in a stack at BBS become the same board? Is a stack of say 20 all going to become anti heroís or krookeds or something, because that would make the numeral system a bit easier to track wouldnít it ?

How many different 8.125 shapes does DLX have right now? I want to skate DLX boards more but I can't get on with the 14.38 wb. It's kinda weird to me that DLX manufactures trucks that extend a setup's wheelbase and also have mostly long wheelbase decks out.

I've had 4 of the DLX decks (Real & Antihero) that are 8.125" x 31.38" w/ 14" wb and have absolutely loved them.

The shapes for all 4 have been consistently the same (band-aid shaped with a medium concave). The only thing that may bug some people is that the nose is a little short, so it feels more like a "twin-tail" deck. The nose definitely measures under 7" (maybe around 6.75"?)

Anyways, I dig short boards and the 14" wheelbase feels a lot more responsive than the standard DLX 14.38 wb.
I really wish DLX would put out a few 8.25's or 8.38's with a 14" wb... (Where you at Lenny?)

Edit: SoCal has a few up with the full dims

I am riding the exact same shape, was really digging it. While it was fine in the beginning it started to warp quite fast but you get used to riding it.

Yeah, I've seen this one but I'm scared to order one because the nose looks so small. I want less length in wheelbase without sacrificing a nice full tail and nose... I also miss when I didn't give a shit about anything but a board's width

It would be cool if there were those semetrical shapes ishod rides, I would be interested in trying one. I donít known if itís just my luck at shops in my hood but they are always weird sizes, how about some good old fashioned size 8ís?

They make other sizes, last drop I think? I've not seen anywhere, online or in shops.

Thereís a shorter one and a ďregular/longerĒ one (see: black AH Eagle). Fun fact: the short one used to be almost exclusively found on Drehobl boards.

I think they measure a hair big...ie an 8.125 would fit perfectly on 8.25 trucks.....
