Went down the rabbit hole and requested for sample reports both 2 market research companies. I got the sample reports in PDF so hit me up if you're looking for some bedtime reading.

Also this research company is covers decks, trucks, wheels and bearings. Having a major analyst boner right now:

Edit: still have 3 Magenta boards from BBS in 8.125; if Canada Skate Shop brought in samples from other woodshops like Clutch or Chapman I would have loved to try a few.
[close]

Same thing. Chapman doesn't press boards anymore, they use ASF/Clutch blanks. For what it's worth, the two decks I've had that came from Chapman (8.38 coda and 8.25 hotel blue) have felt better than the other clutch decks I've skated. It's almost certainly down to the fact that they were both the O shape which is pretty much exactly what I like (square-ish kicks, big nose, full shape, 14.25 wb, around 31.6 length) while the others were P or K shape though.

I've grabbed Canadian shop boards and they are good....ninetimes, menu, both BBS/generator.  I think blue tile too....
[close]

Wasn't bluetile quincy wood or am I thinking of blueprint? Too many blues.

Where did you get your information from regarding Chapman not pressing boards anymore? My buddy is starting to go through them for boards, but this information has not been brought up. Everything on the site still has manufactured in the U.S by Chapman.

I placed an order with woodchuck

Iím pretty sure they wood for willys workshop and finesse, but I havenít confirmed. I really like finesse boards

They do a lot of shops. They do the current blueprint logo stuff, Death, premium, selfish(which is still a thing in Asia) and some red dragon stuff. they do that brand burger that youíve probably got Instagram ads for.

 they also did the decks for the teen choice awards.

Probably right on the first one with someone buying the rights to Selfish, the Chinese translate to "Freedom Center 4-Wheeled Car". The TGM ones are old Wenning and Jeremy Rogers models so ancient stock.

The Wenning and J Cassanova boards don't look horrible

Where did you get your information from regarding Chapman not pressing boards anymore? My buddy is starting to go through them for boards, but this information has not been brought up. Everything on the site still has manufactured in the U.S by Chapman.

I couldn't tell you exactly where I first learned it, but it's more or less common knowledge (or maybe 'open secret' is more accurate) for people who are woodshop nerds. Chapman used to use a woodshop in Maine but it closed down a few years back and they started using ASF blanks. The boards even come with the asf/clutch shape code stamps. Doesn't mean they're bad, I think they're better than the old Chapman wood personally.

 "Manufactured" is kinda subjective I suppose.. They are still taking the deck and printing the graphic and wrapping it, which is more or less what they've always done, all that's changed is the woodshop that ships the boards to them. If it still says that then I'm not sure if they're being purposely ambiguous about it or just never updated the website.

FYI this business model is pretty common these days... There's at least a half dozen or so places in the US that do the "import blanks/print/wrap/ship" thing. The only US woodshops still operating I'm aware of are South Central, Watson, Drifter, Pennswood, Prime, and some smaller places like legend and customskateboards.com. Quincy shut down last year and were supposedly moving to a new location and coming back early this year (according to an email conversation I had with the owner) but that still hasn't happened and I'm not sure if it ever will.

 my understanding is, if there are transfers lying around those can be sold and printed. I saw it happen with Given.

I saw the eBay post of someone selling a bunch of given transfers and I saw the local dude whose ďbrandĒ bought them, and got them printed, then saw the shit he got from friends of emeric pratt, when he was selling them.

My guess would be TGM ask the wood shop, what Crap do they have taking up space and can you throw it on a deck for cheap. But again thatís just a guess.

Thanks for the info. My buddy contacted them and asked if they still manufacture, or if they are getting them from clutch. The response he got was "we partnered with ASF last year....".

Does PS Stix still do Toy Machine pro boards?

Just picked one up, 8.25 14.175 31.8ish. I'm hearing PS go soggy and razor quick. Surely nothing can razor tail as quickly as my Primitive deck did.

does it have a lazer-engraved "PSXXXXXXX" production number at the top front truck holes?  If not, it's not PS Stix.

has anyone (*cough*buttfart?*cough*) taken note of  what bonding method for plys each presser uses? I feel like epoxy being a fairly hard resin would completely change the feel of the wood, as opposed to other glues that don’t harden as much? just a shower thought. I feel like I once heard PS say he hates epoxy? can’t remember

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.

🙄

I mean, some renowned companies use shit factories. Iíve never heard of a non disclosure for a factory.

Nah, didn't have the PS on it. Do PS do that with every brand they do?

Been seeing a lot of Girl and Toy Machine logo boards from the same couple of sellers on Aliexpress. There are probably 100s of woodshops in China supplying to the local market. I think someone on this thread mentioned hat Maxallure was done by PGI, another China woodshop of better quality than the regular stuff coming out.

That puts no confidence in me to by a Girl or Chocolate to ride. As I like the 14 to 14.25 wb on the mellower side. The Toy Machine I rode is a pro model. I'm down here in Australia.

Back to the drawing board, thanks. Just such a shame 3 day life of a deck.

A friend who rides exclusively Crail wood has had bad luck all around, the 2020 Girl deck he just setup lasted 2 hours of flatground skating before snapping over the trucks.
