8.25 carpet co with black magic grip. The shape is hella good.
Independent standard hollow 144, i had to take off the bottom washer for the pivot to sit in the cup properly, also so the hanger could sit correctly on the bushing. Seems like the bottom bushing was too tall.

I tried the mid indy 144  (first pic)and they just sucked. The truck wheelbites faster than thunders and venture low. Also the trucks never rebounded no matter what bushings or pivot cups i put on.
Spitfire 50s with swiss six.

Been skating dunks lately.
Really enjoying the the set up, not just adjustment from a 7.75.  Only adjustment is that my shoe catches more of my grip, so my flick makes the board float higher than im used to. So i have to jump higher than before. Also i hardly turn since im not used to skating high loose trucks coming from tight low trucks. I'll be turning lightly and forget i could turn more and catches me off guard since I'm waiting for wheelbite not a deeper turn.  ::)

It's funny you say that, I (and all the homies) like the graphic too; I think the blk/red/green works better than the 8.5 orange/blue/green (which is also an amazing shape for you 8.5 riders).

The foy twin is a hybrid (to me anyway), especially after skating so many twins...crail twins feel the same (tho not as full). Habitat are BIG BOY noses, Quasi and dlx, mellow/wide tails, the two new cosmic SC twins (which seem to be phasing out fast) have long canoe noses, just gross. This foy (at least in the pic) leans towards a nose rather than a tail but when riding it 'it doesn't feel like either'

I found a cheap SC twin (the one twin from them I've not skated); hopefully it stacks up.

If you are on the fence about an 8.25 twin, I gotta say that this one is 'the one' and I've skated just about all the 8.25s out there (not the toymachine which also has a true 14.25 WB and long at 32") PLUS this is the rare breed with a larger than 14" WB so there's that if it matters to you.

Truth be told I'm still waiting for an 8.3 holy grail twin.

I'm on the SC 8.4 twin and I'm liking it a lot, wouldn't mind keeping a stack. The kicks aren't as pointy as I originally thought and the length at 32" with 14.25" WB is great with Venture Forged, easier to manage than the Habitat / AWS. The graphics are the biggest downside, I'll take the bland Habitat Apex graphic over the eagle / cat monstrosity.
Venture Truck Height:

5.0 & 5.2 LO
STANDARD - 1.88” - 47.75mm
FORGED - 1.85”- 46.99mm

5.0 ,5.2, 5.6, 5.8 & 6.1 HI
STANDARD - 2.09” - 53.09mm
FORGED - 2.04” - 51.82m

Politic 8 flat mold with pepper grip, last time I use anything besides black magic.
Venture low 5.2 standard stock
Spitfire 50mm f4 classic

Board skates great just the graphic feels sticky. Had been skating a 8.25 with Indys standards. It's cool to not be that good so changing set ups doesn't affect me that much.

Lithe is new brand to me so I don't know for sure, but they might use similar idea. I forgot to mention that my deck also has slick bottom. All boards are handmade. It's local company which I want to support.

Ordered this deck a few months ago but put it on ice once I saw it was PS Stix wood. Decided to set it up in honor of the new TM video, but hated it for the 20 minutes I skated it. Had that ultra-flexible noodle feeling that you randomly get with PS boards.
TM Hoban 8.63


Got home and immediately swapped it out and had a fantastic session on it the next day. Long live BBS.
DLX shop board, "IV" stamp which is my favorite, and has a very cool subtle herringbone brick debossed pattern on the bottom ply. 8.75x32.62, 14.62wb

F4 99s 51mm
Quantum Atoms "ceramic hybrid"

Beautiful setup, but I think I would have a werewolf-like transformation into some horrible creature if I was forced to setup a fully fresh complete but use old bolts on it.
