How can you tell if a Hockey deck is PS wood or BBS wood?

How can you tell if a Hockey deck is PS wood or BBS wood?

The warning sticker is what I look at first, but if you bought it recently then it's probably BBS. The sticker that was on all my bbs hockey/FA decks is black and white while the one PS uses is red and white and a little bigger.

Also, I don't remember if this applies to Hockey/FA but usually PS decks have a laser-etched serial number between the front truck holes and the sticker will be placed above it while BBS decks usually have the warning sticker placed between the front truck holes. The color thing doesn't apply to all decks either, as BBS does use red/white stickers (as well as customized ones) for a lot of boards. If you have any questions about a particular deck you can always try emailing the company and asking or posting it here and seeing if anyone else has one and can tell you.

Smartass when you get a chance can you remove Troika from Pennswood? I was wrong about that one, they only used them for one small run a long time ago and I highly doubt there's any floating around. They now use Point distribution which I believe sources decks from a variety of manufacturers. I know they're a tiny local company that you'll almost certainly never see outside of a Pittsburgh shop, but I don't want anyone to buy one under the impression they're getting Pennswood and end up with something totally different.

No problem thank you for being quick on the fix. This thread is a great resource that I've used countless times so I want the information to be as accurate and up to date as possible.

I see you added some other shops at the end, I think Woodchuck does Death boards.

NHS is just their distributor and not their actual manufacturing spot. Decks distributed by NHS are mainly made by Dwindle, the same spot that makes the decks for Thank You Supply (Almost/Enjoi).

Yeah, I think 2 wood shops now, Goleta (Santa Barbara) and China. Mini-logo is the China stuff. Hoopla and Positiv are dead sub-brands? Idk which factory made those.

Smartass trolling me with Woodchuck! I see your Woodchuck and I raise you an Elenex.

Woodchuck makes the list Vision doesn't? Dorfman's pissed!

I'll look thru my notes for the names of the China stuff.

Are these Dwindle boards still pressed in China or do they have a separate US woodshop for Santa Cruz and Thank You?
Did any of you guys ever notice that if you took off the end "er" from his name, moved the "b" to after the "i" and then added an "l" to the "b" that you just moved, you'd spell "Bible"?

Sorry if this is pedantic..
DSM is the woodshop in China. Full name has Chop Chop and a city name in it. Can foreigners own a factory in China? I don't think they can, think they need to partner with a Chinese national.
DSM makes decks for Dwindle, NHS, and others.
Thank You Supply is Dwindle's direct mail order just like Fun Factory is for NHS.

Now if Dwindle was smart they'd have a small wood shop in Cali for Rodney to play around with. Maybe not presses but CNC cutters to make new shapes (and small runs like that freestyle deck) would be a good idea, just send some blanks from China.. Definitely a heat-transfer station.

Probably something like that, or even some component you wouldn't necessarily think of like bushings. I've seen a lot of those real oval/AH eagle completes (with trucks from slant or anchor or ruckus or something like that) on Rakuten and Ali express so I would think that's the most likely scenario

Are the deluxe price point boards in Europe hecho en Mexico?

Don't think that the price point deluxe boards are made in mexico here in europe- i'll try to find out at my local shop tomorrow...

I'M pretty sure that the kiddie boards with the weird trucks are china made! and i guess that this is how DELUXE ended up on their customer list

Deluxe uses BBS/Generator in Mexico. If you have a board that says "made in Mexico" it's probably either BBS or PS. Blackbox used to have a shop there too, but its been gone a while. If you look at the first post in this thread you can see a list of who uses what woodshop.

Does Clutch/ASF do a made in Mexico sticker?
What happened to lamie's woodshop? Did it become Clutch?
Who bought Taylor-Dykeman's(sp?) stuff?
Anyone wanna go into the difference between BBS and Generator? Pretty sure they're 2 different companies. GSD owns Generator and they started out as a silk-screen shop?

Has anyone here had issues with companies giving out information as to where they press their boards?

I just asked a local company and they said the information was "confidential business propriety". Then gave some marketing spiel like "our boards are made where some of the most renowned companies produce boards at the highest level" etc.

That's super classic. Check on one of the previous threads for an IE from Antiz
