Welcome just dropped some new Evil Twins on their site. Of course the 8.5 has the ugliest graphic. But damn, the 8.25 and 8.75 is sick 👀

Anyone get an Skateshop Day Ishod twintail? I got one to skate. High concave and all the dyed veneers makes it my favorite twintail DLX has made.

I loved when they didnít make every 8.3 Ishod a slick. One of the main reason I got it to skate.

I snagged one in Ottawa, its a really sick looking deck with all the painted plies. The purple colour really pops against the black. I almost dont want to skate it.

I almost pulled the trigger on one but didnít. I normally skate 8.5 but I donít even think Iíd skate it if I got one.

Currently skating ~8" boards with 147 thunders so it might require some new trucks but Ishod actually skates 147s on his 8.3 and just uses extra washers so ill try that first.

i skated 8.5" on indy 139s before its fine. that being said it was mcuh better on indy 144s. you dont even need washers to push out (you are only gaining like a mm anyway) 8.3" with 8" trucks will hardly magic carpet at all. i actually prefer to go up 1/4" for every trucks size.

Does the welcome 8.25 twin shape have a 14 inch wheelbase? Some sites list it at 14 inch and some others do list it at 14.25

The Welcome site itself says 14 and they would probably know best. But I had another of their twin tail 8.25s and it was listed as a 14.25 on the retailer's site. It's possible Welcome has its own board measurements wrong, or measured them differently from other people.

On that welcome evil twin (specifically 8.5")
How are the tail / nose ?
They seem pretty square / shovel
How do they compare to Hockey/ FA or Gx1000 ?

Almost identical. The FA is just a little more square. Welcome tapers more, but itís nothing drastic.

The Welcome is on top of the FA in the picture, both are 8.5. You can barely see the FA cause the shapes are that similar.

That quasi has been around for a minute (Henry Mirror/Dog Work, Metal Blue/Etc), ridden a few of them. It's super super good.

I havenít skated the Quasi twintail, but from what I remember seeing when I compared them, the nose and tail seemed long on the Quasi. Wheelbase on the Ishod is longer. Quasi twintail has a 14.25Ē WB. Ishod is a 14.4Ē WB. Quasi is 8.375Ē wide. Ishod is 8.3Ē wide. Iíve measure the 8.3Ē and the DLX 8.25Ē, and they looks the same to me.

I love the Ishod twintail. Havenít skated the Quasi because of the wheels base. 14.25Ē is too short for me

To me, the quasi feels more like an 8.25, whereas the Ishod feels like an 8.3/8.5:, Quasi is more Twin Nose, than Twin Tail (Ishod), the Quasi is a bit pointier than the Ishod, however, it's not pointy, it's a very full rounded shape (which has sort of spoiled me now because I love that style nose).

The Quasi (as the Dims state) is smaller all 31.75 vs 31.9 - 14.25" WB vs 14.44" - width wise it's wash, the Ishod is listed as 8.3, quasi 8.375 but tolerances as they are, they're so close you'd be hard pressed to notice.

Both BBS but depending on the numeral you get from DLX, the Quasis were always more mellow.

Biggest take is the Ishod feels bigger overall. I ran 8.25" trucks on the quasi usually. 149s on the DLX.

I'm going to nab that new quasi to Ice, the Brown/Mirror graphic was shit, Metal cat was stupid limited and the Dog Work was to directional.

I snapped the Welcome 8.0 yesterday so immediately set up an old Ishod 8.3 that i had on standby.  I turns out that the Ishod is not my cup of tea at all, it felt fat, short, heavy, pointy and I generally disliked looking down at it.  I'm sure I'd get used to it again, but I'm glad I knew the Welcome was on its way out so got another, I just hadn't gripped it 'cause I was waiting to set it up for Barcelona in a couple of weeks.  I for sure won't be buying an Ishod or Worrest again.

Thatís one point I forgot to mention, the dlx twin did feel heaviest, especially the slick, by comparison.

I can understand the slick being heavy because the plastic does add weight but bbs boards have always been a bit heavier than PS stix.

The slick twins have also been the only boards I have had in the last 10 years that warped. 

I have had three of the 8.3 twins. Two slicks that both warped, and a regular that has been sitting mostly unskated for 3 years that is still straight as an arrow.

I think there was an interview with Paul where he said Welcome shapes are off limits for brands because of the effort and work the brand's out in.
He doesnít seem like the type to hold much grudges butÖ probably has his own copy of templates in case they come back or someone wants them as starting points.

Kinda like how NHS has a tracing tool for shapes.
Nothing I do deserves more than an iphone camera.
