The Killing Floor 8.38 mashup 1/1

Liking the colours on this one. Is this the KF 8.38 shape with 14.3 something WB? How do you find it pairs with the thunders?  Just curious because i ride same combo (148s with 8.38)

Thanks! It is the generic bbs 8.38x14.38x32 mold that quite a few brands like Pass~Port, Sci Fi, etc. use. I have ridden it on Thunders, Indy forged, Indy Standard, and even Ventures and love it on the Thunders.  It's very similar to the DLX 8.25 but as a slightly longer tail and shorter nose but they skate super similar. I haven't found anything seriously wrong with it and TKF uses sorta mellower decks from the press but not Baker mellow.

I don't mess with colored trucks, but raw hanger with a colored baseplate is a nice change up.

I don't either but I had the urge. I've got regular cast plates too if I get bored and it's paint so lots will flake/scrape off over time

I'm assuming those are Donovan's new pro model? I fuck with the baseplate color but hate when there's too much going on with the hanger

UMA 8.5x32.25 ( I had an Almost board that was 32 long and its the same, so I dont know about that)
Concave is medium, not too steep, not too low. Board itself was made in China according to sticker, but seems fine after 1 session, maybe a little too heavy  (Again, I had a Almost board before this one, which was super thin and light as fuck, so maybe Im just used to that, and also, this one is dipped)

Thunders 151, both trucks down to the axle, I give them a month tops, I think they are both bent
Minilogo 52s, 101, the lockin shape (A-cut I think?) Ive been skating these wheels for a good 3-4 last sets, and I see no difference between them and STF Bones, and they are half the price
Bones Swiss, probably 4 years old, never cleaned, shields off and they still roll perfectly
Indy Phillips bolts, missing one in the back
Jessup Ultra grip
Emerica Wino G6 cupsole slipons, the Spanky colorway (Favourite shoes of all time)

May have to try one of these shapes for my next deck, sounds like a good blend!

The 14.38 is the generic mold, there is another 14.5 they make that is the DLX Dreamer shape and Baker and a few others use one that is basically identical. I always measure the WB. I do have a Krooked 8.38 that is 14.5 and a spare set of 148 but I haven't skated it yet.

thinking about it it might be a tiny bit shorter than the blue eagle since the board i compared it to was well skated, so its probably more like 31.7 long, 0.125 shorter tail, but the shape as in the concave is pretty much 1:1 identical, wheelbase is the same too

I have had quite a few of both shapes, but it seemed like the 8.38 with 14.5 board is not used for the generic shape that BBS has for the 8.3 width boards.

There have definitely been a lot of major brands use the 8.38 x 32.25 (or 32.12) with 14.5 wb including DLX, Baker, Birdhouse, Element, DGK and more, but the other generic 8.3 shape is a bit thinner overall, as well as the shorter 14.38 wb and slightly shorter 32 length, when comparing them directly.  The tail is definitely a touch longer on the generic shape too, which is the main thing I noticed, moving the back bolts up a touch = shorter wheelbase and longer tail, which in some ways I would prefer, but they both work well enough, depending on your needs.

I like the 8.38 longer board on my standard Indy 149s or one set of Ace AF1 55s (more transition / all rounder for me) but the shorter generic 8.3 one works well on Thunder and Venture trucks, especially the 8.25 sized trucks, eg Thunder 148 or Venture 5.6 as per some guys I know who skate that setup more as a tech / street board, but they still shred everything on it.

Pairing deck to trucks is still a personal preference, but I feel like some work well together, others not so much.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.
