917 8.18 31.75 / 14.25 wb
139 Hollow Forged
Spit Classics 54mm, now 52mm (and perfect)
Modus Abec 7
Indy Bolts
Jessup

917 is now BBS and this feels perfect so far. And it feels more stiff and crunchy as the Anti Hero I had earlier this year.

Ok

Ace 44 flat top washer
Loophole 54 Vs
Reds
Allens
Jessup




Going to be using these for the next run of Fortress Skateboards.
First session-ledges, flat, a bank, and a small set of stairs
First impression-nice full shape, but not square. Concave and kicks on the mellower side of steep. Nice stains and routing. Stiff with a little give. Good pop and flip. One sesh in and Im hyped.

The P2 was a very handsome shape and I loved the ultra square nose, but I think I'm just not a mellow concave/kicks guy. Decided to try the quasi proto shape again before I give up and just ride hockey decks forever.

9" at front bolts, 8.8"ish at rear.
169 Indys
56 Ricta Chrome Clouds 92a
Santa Cruz Rails

I have some harder 56s I might throw on because I want to get more comfortable sliding, pivoting, reverting. (Smallbeating 83b, which is like 103a??) But I really only cruise and these wheels are nice for that. As you may notice, my "tricks" have come down to riding without falling, and nose stalls on curbs


I love seeing AHTBM decks on here. Stevil is the absolute best sort of human.

I wanna play you in a game of SKATE for the right to continue talking shit on me.  You think you got me?

Also, that bit between BFRD & Sneaky had me laughing so damn hard.
Thank you, fellas.
I owe you both a beer as payment for the smiles you brought me with that one.

Beautiful.  I really enjoyed the 917 deck I skated for the past month. The wood quality felt good. The shape was more tapered than I was expecting but very functional.  Id buy another one if any shops around me carried them but I dont think they do.

Did you censor Getz' name with that sticker? ^^
And I think the wheels are 52mm. The 53mm classics are orange.

But anyway, sick setup. :)

It's weird. On thunders i just couldn't get used to the wheelbase i think. Pretty sure it's a short one. Felt good the first session then took it off and put it away. Either that or the steep kicks confused me!

Got it back last night and now I'm skating indy's it felt great. Hopefully it continues

My guess is the length and wheelbase, the 8.0 - 8.25 are under 31.5" with a 14" WB. But the 8.38 is quite regular looking (8.38 x 31.75 x 14.25). https://www.skatewarehouse.com/Evisen_SP21_Team_Deck/descpage-EVSP21T83DK.html

Don't Indys generally make WB even shorter than other trucks though? Or do I have it backwards

You have it correct, Uncle, its just that wb/effective wb are but pieces to the greater puzzle.
As an example, Ive skated well on boards that had a short wb, with aces, and I attribute that to maybe helping the short nose and tail lengths.
There is way too much going on with the setup math, all I know is I dunno.
