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.

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.
Fuck me, I skated so many Danís boards in the past and loved them, now to think of that might something to do with smaller wb that Iíve later found to like.
europe's like the capitol of england and france and whatever

I'm not sure why but they skipped them this season or something....they are kinda hard to find right now....

Sales.

Maybe the novelty has probably worn off?

Me and my friends never end up with the same deck and three of us each went to different stores to buy them....plus online everyone was out.  Dunno why.....

Iíve seen a few real 8.125x31.38 decks with 14Ē wheel bases I want to try. Iíve been wanting to try a deck with those dimensions since I saw an MJ Chocolate with them but would rather get DLX quality than Crail wood.

Real R1 Construction
Width - 8.125"
Length - 31.38"
Wheelbase - 14"

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 know antihero makes that 8.28 with a short WB I think it could be 14.1

Been riding this shape for a while.. I keep the sticker in my wallet so i dont forget.

8.28" L 31.7" WB 14.12"

Was that switch?

I've ridden that one a couple of times, WB is a tad tight for me but it worked using Thunders.

New Drehobl shape, looks interesting as fuck.

Recently I switched to Polar 1990 shape and that got me hyped on 9+ boards, for some reasons 8.75/8.8 wasn't enough.

I hope that this one is better than the Grosso shape (not a fan)
brbraaah.

Yeah i made the change to Indys after riding Thunders for like ten years.. I wanted a shorter wheelbase and higher truck, and the indys helped with that on a board with a shorter wheelbase.

Does anyone make a 8.5-8.75 x32+ with long wb, square-ish Quasi/WKND nose, tapered tail, on a medium/mellow concave?
Sorry if this was brought up, didnít feel like sifting through 16 pages.
