This Metal Egg at 8.25 is a thinner than usual offering. Thinking 8" at the trucks?

Nice, I've actually got a pair of the same sitting around collecting dust.  Had been mulling the idea of keeping a smaller setup on hand.

Get hungry on it!

Man, I'm a huge Heroin fanboy but the symmetric Egg graphics where the egg is mirrored don't do it for me. A symmetrical 10" egg sounds great but I'm too picky about my deck art to ride this.

a 14.5 would be nice if thats the case.
i like the OG 10" egg but the tail is a bit short for my liking. so this one could be the solution. i dont actually care about the symmetrical aspect tho.

i liked the 9.75 one. with the upside down faces. and i think the Razor Egg looked great! but i know you didnt like that one ether.
this one is pretty weak, i'll agree on that. but i woulnt mind riding it still.

I'll agree with you that the 9.75 one is actually decent. I hated the Razor Egg, it's way too busy for me. Especially 'cause the original Razor Egg was my first egg, so the original art holds a special place in my heart.

in the Heroin ig post, it looks like there are still 2 more coming in this catalog that are covered by a black box. I'd imagine at least one of those will be a smaller size

Just setup a loveseat with 6.1s and boardycakes 49.99ers. I'm loving it even though not a huge fan of the Craig.

Anyone know of a shop that has the new polar drop in stock?  It looks like thereís a football shape again in this one (trying to confirm that).  A few shops were in Polarís IG story but none of them seemed to have the football one in stock

Uprise has them in stock I think. Looks like the Roman board is their football shape.

Exactly what I was looking for - thanks!

I think the initial picture I saw was two overlapping Dane 1ís in a pile of decks that gave the appearance of a Dane 1 football haha. Roman one looks sick

After reading the whole thread my body is asking for a football or egg shaped board. I can't wait to skate one of those so I will ask for help. If you have free time, could you help me to decide what deck is the best one? I skated 8" popsicles from 1999 to 2009 and then stopped skating. This year I started again with wide boards. I use a 10" Powell Peralta Steve Saiz reissue and a 10" Santa Cruz Jeff Kendall End of the World reissue. I love those set ups. I want a side football deck for flip tricks, not less than 9" and not over 9.5". I made a list but the problem is I'm from Japan so I don't know if brands send decks with bad wood here or they are the same than USA. This is my (long) list of football/egg wishes.

Tired The Rounders Chuck 9.3" this is my favorite one but I've read here that Tired wood is bad. Is it true?
Black Label Jason Adams Suffer 9" I also love this one.
Black Label Black Widow 9.25" Same as above. Love it.
Black Label Jake Reuter snake and rat 9".
Black Label Snuff Cardiel 9.25"

The next on the list are the Antihero team:
Antihero Cardiel Mezcalero 9.18"
Antihero Gerwer Grimples at work 9.1"
Antihero Supreme Curbs. It's also cool but it's really expensive so don't recommend me this one please lol.
Antihero Huffer 9.18"
Antihero Cardiel Carbine 9.18"

Frog The Distraction 9.1" I really like this one but I don't know how is its wood.
Primitive Villani 9.1"
Crailtap Phawt 9.1"
Girl Kennedy Blooming 9.1"
Skatemental Curren Caples 9"
Uma Landsleds star head buddies 8.9"

Also I know all the Heroin Eggs commented here but I want to try something different so I didn't list them. I don't dislike the brand, in fact, someday I would buy the Heroin Dead Dave Video City because I like it a lot. I'm looking for a snappy, responsive deck with good wood and long pop. I'm very tall (190cm) so I don't care about long WB. I'm ok with 15". Which one do you recommend me? Thank you and sorry for the big message!

i can atleast tell you the Black Label in Japan are straight from the US, i've been at the distro that imports them.
but in the end. i dont think you should worry too much. just get what you like. doubt you gonna feel the difrence in wood anyway.

Being a taller guy you might enjoy the longer wheelbases of the Cardiel (snuff & Huffer) decks.

Yes, decks with longer wheelbases are my priority but also I want a shape I like. If somebody knows how is the wood of Tired Skateboards let me know, please. I've not found any info online. Thank you!

Tired are BBS as far as Iím aware, Iím skating one of the 9.125 egg shaped decks at the moment (I think itís the ďChuckĒ shape) and been really enjoying it. All of the shaped Tired decks Iíve seen have super mellow kicks/concave and most if not all have a 14ĒWB I believe (may be wrong but I think thatís the case), so maybe keep that in mind if you were thinking of grabbing one

Just had a quick look at the Tired decks weíve got in stock to compare to other BBS brands and the Tired decks have the exact same warning sticker as the FA decks weíve got in (the FAs have the wee hologram sticker on em too so definitely BBS) as well as some other brands. The one Iím skating also had the circular puncture between the top bolts and defo feels like the other BBS decks Iíve skated recently so Iím fairly sure, will try to remember to post in the woodshop thread when Iím home tonight!

my Tired deck (1989 shape) does not have any warning/holographic stickers on it, also no dimple. could that mean Euro and US are difrent woodshops? or did the recently make the swich to BBS. the one i got came out over a year ago.

The only Tired deck Iíve had was definitely Clutch, but that was late 2020/early 2021 when everyone was scrambling for production. Would love to try that chuck shape if itís on bbs
