Other than potentially the Metal one posted above - any other smaller egg shapes out there that taper over the trucks to 8.00”?

Contemplating giving a smaller board a shot with one of the 8 inch sets of trucks I have laying around

Enjoi Deedz shape. 8.3
Here it's pictured with 8.25 thunders, which are kind of wide. 8.0s work just fine.

This is an interesting one:


https://sectprebook.com/collections/decks/products/believe-blue-8-75

Details
Channel the early 90s street skating creativity with this 8.75" Egg shape. 14.25" WB.




This looks awesome. I have some Indy 159a, that maybe could fit? If that deck is 32" or shorter, I will get it.

DLX makes an 8.38 egg that works with 8-inch trucks. Mini version of their “Flyer” shape? There’s been a few Grimple decks on it in recent drops.

Any eggheads cop the franky primitive mystery box? What boards did you get? I have until midnight to pull the trigger, still unsure. 2 franky eggs for $60 is pretty hard to beat…

I pulled the trigger but fedex says I wont wont get them til Saturday. FedEx tracking also shows they’ve not left wherever they shipped from. And I ordered 8/2/22 so I’m hoping they are enroute and fedex just don’t update their tracking

Ha yeah, but is that even still a thing?

Also I thought it was based on production numbers, not sales numbers, but I don't know much about how things work nowdays for those companies.  I seem to recall that was how it was a while back anyway.


I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

Mine just got delivered, same as above. Where's that thread about the best way to remove graphics? (i like the scatter graphic, but I can't seriously ride a DBZ deck)

Can anyone who got the recent Primitive egg 2 fer cheap deal measure the wheelbase?  I got major anxiety doing some internet searching - some sites say the dbz egg and Franky scattered have a 14.4 wb?!?!? I thought their 9.125 egg shape was supposed to have a 14.25 wb...

My shipment don't come til Monday, but I'll be sleepless unless someone can confirm hopefully more like a 14.25 wb.

Top sticker says 14.43 and my tape measure agrees, measured center-to-center on the holes. "inside" to "inside" of the holes is 14.25 on the dot

Went ahead and set this up last night.  I call it my impulse buy setup

Heroin Fried Egg 2 8.9" w/ 14.375 wb
Ace AF1 55 Lows. Swapped out the bottom bushing with a pair of classics because the short ones that came stock were just way too squirly for my liking.
Boardy Cakes 49mm Round Ups
Reds Big Balls

Get hungry on it!

Gah.

I've had both 14.25 and 14.43 Villani Primitive eggs. The last three have been 14.43, so I assume that's what they mean for it to be.

What trucks did you run on the 14.43? I was planning thunder goes it’s been my go too. But idk that may stretch it too much. Indy or Royal?
