Heroin Tom Day 8.5 x 32.5 14.38 WB (razor top)
Thunder 149 w/ plates that glow
F4 54mm 97d conical full
Quantum Isotopes
Miles grip
Reebok Club Cs

These trucks have been feeling almost amazing on a 14.25 WB, hoping this tiny tweak finds the sweet spot for me.

Loving the isotopes.

Swapped some NFG squares that have been really good for the 97s and itís like these were made for the rough pavement in my neighborhood. Not soft, just smooth.

I need a week or two on the Miles. Itís a little grittier than Jessup but the backing is softer/lighter than Jessup. I was worried it would suck to put on but itís almost like the backing is more flexible than normal, not in a bad way. It was easy to put on, used a regular razor on the grip and the plastic one to pry a car mount thing off the back of my phone.

How do yíall cut the grip on a sharp (not sanded) top rail? Just straight to the edge? I knew it was like that but forgot and remembered once I was a few inches in to cutting.

Very cool.

Are they club cs?

Love the succulent stickers
Thanks! They came out of a pinata a couple weeks ago.

Loving the bearings! The Dolly sticker was made by a friend out in Beaumont, TX: http://www.drawcomicdesigns.com/new-products-1 Looks like she has this and a couple other designs left from her last release.


Very cool.

Are they club cs?

Yep. Since I got these Iím constantly checking for more.

Chocolate Yonnie Coldsorez 8.18" x 31.5" pop secret (G028)
Grind King disruptor 5.5 (8.125" axle)
Bop Shop 53mm 99a wheels (klasiq shape)
Bop Shop "1.60934 kilometers" grip (comes with a paper machť razor)
Pusher bearings

Saw the trucks were on sale and my curiosimadness got the best of me. Also been wanting to try these boards for a while because I have a 6 ply factory sample/prototype pop secret that I really like, and this shape is right in my wheelhouse in terms of dimensions. The shape is classic crail with the straight rails and mellow concave but kind of steep kicks. So far I don't hate it but holy shit is it stiff and I think I'm going to have to experiment with other trucks because it feels pretty heavy.

Wb and what are the GK like ?

14 wb, Crail actually has a very nice site with full specs of all their currently offered shapes for those of us who weigh our trucks and use digital calipers because we swear our current board is thicker/thinner than the last one (aka are mentally ill).

GK have actually surprised me so far. Sometimes I buy stuff kind just for the fun of trying shitty gimmicky skate gear (of which GK have long been the...well.. kings) and then it surprises me by actually being pretty good. I'm not totally ready to say these fall into that category yet because I've only got 2 days on them, but so far they're better than I was expecting. I am taking them off this setup already but it's more because I don't think they're a good fit for this deck than for any other reason. They're not heavy but not light either at 361g, which I guess isn't bad for a full cast truck but they're also only 8.12 axle. Turn is good. Didn't blow my mind but they definitely ain't krux, and I like the weird metal bushing cap thing. The bushings themselves feel pretty good, I'd guess probably right around 90a... they're very pliable like the improved indy stock ones so I did have to crank them down a bit to avoid biting any time I landed weird or tried to take turn too sharp. Grind felt fine, pretty much the same as indys. Overall I'm going to have to try them on a board I'm totally comfortable with to make a real decision as to whether or not I like them, but I can say they're well made and the materials are good.

Spitfire F4 54 (worn down to like 50 i think?)
Bones Reds

What was mentioned earlier about Pop Secret being heavy- I've definitely felt that. I have a Real Mason deck on ice, and was amazed how light it felt in my hands, since this is my second Pop Secret in a row. But it's not fucking with my tricks, so I guess it's all good.

Crailtap graphics have been more hits than misses recently, but they do best when they keep it simple with their iconic logo. I got shipped a 8.25 Pop Secret on ice, add that to the pile of decks I will get down to skating eventually.

Good choice on the trucks. I was thinking about getting them too but got forged hollow 149s instead and I'm glad I did. Also this setup is a beauty.
all this indy talk has me tempted. havenít skated some in a long long time. anyone know if the forged hollow 149s are taller than thunders? currently ride thunder teams with 1/8 risers.
