This is my second pair of the 52mm snape wheel and I’m enjoying them, they slide well and I haven’t had em flat spot yet. They stay pretty white and aren’t chalky either like a bones stf.

How do they handle rough ground/slide compared to 99 or 101 spitfire f4s?

I had waywards back in the day, though I think a different formula, and they slid a lot worse, like a classic kinda.

beautiful, passports are always so clean! How you liking the Dicksons?

The Dicksons are great. I do a lot of heelflips and the rubber toe and heelcap are yet to really wear down after a month of wear. Every other part just skates like a standard canvas vulc though; so a lot of shoe goo, and they're almost ready to be switched out. I have those new synth Maranas waiting in my closet.

Not the OP but this is my favorite BBS shape and itís pretty standard across most companies that use it. Itís decently full, but not as much as a Real Full or Full SE. itís very middle of the road if that makes sense. I swear that PP decks last me longer than the other brands that use the same mold tho I had one last 2x as long as my other recent decks and I ended up just getting bored of looking at it.

I'd say it's pretty full. I've never ridden a Passport before but it's comparable to the Real 8.25 Full board I have.

Hockey Nik Stain 8.25Ē (the real skategoat)
Ace 44 Classics with Riptides
Spitfire F4 OG Classics 52 mm
Bearings
Hardware
Mob and a little clear Jessup
Last Resort ABs

On my third pair of Last Resorts - I think theyíre great skate shoes

Ordered some regular Spitfire conicals to add to the set up but got impatient. Been skating mostly conical fulls for the last year - looking for something similar but a little lighter feeling.  Donít see many non-full conicals out in the wild.

Perfect. I was thinking of trying that board in the 8.44 shape, but seeing the top view reminds me of how well the classic Hockey shape skates (love it with Aces, too).

Job is shipping me around scandinavia for the next few weeks. Had to fly out through Frankfurt, which is like one of two airports that won't let you carry a skateboard around, so I decided to wait until I got here and set up a monster.

Yeah Iíve been fully back skating for almost a year now and my compulsive buying has led me to many sizes and shapes of decks.  I really think 8.25Ē is the overall ideal width for me at this point and the Hockey/FA 8.25Ē shape is so good.  If I was smart Iíd stock up on those and stop switching it up.  Must admit I was intrigued by the 8.44Ē shape though but I donít wanna go up in size again right now.

I feel bad, I really wanted to throw some Ventures on there but I just couldnít. Ace classics have kind of ruined other trucks for me for the time being.

That looks like an extremely fun board to grind curbs and ledges with.

Still on these Crail G052's. Switched a bit up recently. Went from F4 97s back to 99's, been skating a newly built park and the 97s felt slow to me. Also picked up the new Miles Silvas Omni Thunders, very amped on them. They are a slightly higher Team Hollow. I always liked the feel of Thunders but they were too low for me. These are great, no wheelbite.

Specs:
Girl Sean Malto 93Til (G052 China)
Thunder Miles Silvas Omni Team Hollow
Spitfire F4 99a 52mm Classics
Bones Swiss Six
Almost Gold bolts 1" Allen

The go52 is my favorite crail shape for sure. I love the sea foam blue with the brown bottom ply showing. Looks so good.

Its great! I've skated 8.5 trucks forever. But actually retired the trucks yesterday after I realised the axles were really bent. Put some 5.6s (two washers on the inside) to see what its like and I think I may stick with it for a bit. I put more detailed thoughts in the magic carpet thread, but tldr: slightly better leverage for flip tricks, less wheel jamming on nose/tailslides, sharper turn at the expense of less stability, more wheelbite, and a little less grind room.

I may have to try the 5.6s after my current are done. Which will be pretty soon. I am also sizing back down to 8.25 tho because I have 4 decks that are that size waiting to be set up. I'm thinking the size down will help with flip tricks and I won't tire out as fast.

Yeah it makes a lot of sense on 8.25. I skated 8.5 trucks for years, skated a few 8.25s last year and kept the 8.5 trucks for the most part. Never had a problem with it but now I'm kinda seeing why people like having slightly smaller trucks than the board. Depends on what your priorities are really there's definitely pros and cons
