Edit:
after some sleuthing, it looks like it's a control board. Anyone got opinions on control?

I would not ride anything pressed at Control even if it was free. Some people like them though.
agreed, weird wood that looses its pop, also strange unroutered edges on the top ply. sc, bbs, dwindle, penns for me

Ok

Why no control?

@TwisT pretty flat, thatís why I liked it. Mine were stiff, stayed that way. I prefer a little more flex like ps, but Iíd skate em again. Studio is control, ya? Man their graphics are so sick. Another company that I should buy from
[close]

I've never held one/stood on one I like the feel of. It's a shame because I agree Studio is sick and I like a lot of their graphics. Now, I've never personally skated a Control since I haven't found one I like, but I've heard a fair bit of bad feedback from people who have tried them. The most common complaint is that they are soggy from the get go.

I donít think Iíd call mine soggy....I tap boards on the ground to kinda Ďgaugeí (just total bs on my part) the pop of the board. Obviously Iím also checking it via, you know, actually attempting tricks and what not, but a quick tap on the ground is gonna happen, often. Anyways, the control boards sounded the same, good solid sound, sounded better than they went tho. If any of that drivel I subject whomever to makes sense. Wasnít terrible, durable, lasted, wasnít amazing.

This is actually one of the new ďCanadian madeĒ moose decks from TGM. I bought a moose deck last year to keep with family up north. It had Made in China sticker and it felt dead on arrival. I bought this just test some diy heat transfers, and immediately noticed it was different wood.

Iíd say it has mellow concave but the kicks are the same as this dlx board I have. I also weighed the boards. The blank is 2lbs 15oz. The dlx is 2lbs 12oz. I doubt that makes any difference.

Interesting to hear "same kicks as DLX board" as it seems they are almost the pinacle of what a good board should feel like with concave and kicks, to some people at least.  I have seen two different DIY board press molds built from taking a DLX board (clearly see the graphics, or even say "This is a Real board" in the post) so I would imagine others including some of the bigger woodshops would be looking at that and making board molds to those concave specs too.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

Also, what is it called when you round off the edge of a skateboard? Routing? I feel like a lot of these smaller wood shop never round of the edges as much as bbs. It makes their boards look thicker. Thatís why I weighed it.

I disagree about the kicks.....to me they are flat, not steep but sudden, not a lot of curve to it....for some reason they remind me more of crail?  The most common trait is they are both on the mellow side....

Not bad, not great. I've only skated the blanks so maybe the pro decks are better but I wasn't impressed with them.

I just got a new Studio deck and man, am I bummed. Skated it 3 times so far, just flat ground and low ledge stuff, and it's got massive chips and cracks all over it. Bummed because the graphic is rad but the deck quality is terrible.

Does anyone know for certain where Zero boards (specifically the classic graphics like this one) are currently pressed? I thought for sure they were BBS but this one doesnít have the usual made in Mexico/skate at your own risk sticker. It does have an etching for the width, but no other stickers or markings.

I have been looking around and it would seem that Zero is one of the companies that has different boards for different parts of the world.  I had thought in the US they are BBS now, maybe the same at other places and seems our local ones here in Australia, or at least some are still Dwindle (clearly have the Dwindle markings as per insta post I will put up) but this is usually the same as the Baker Boys stamp, on Baker, Deathwish, Birdhouse, etc so I would be thinking it would be BBS, but would have to feel the concave to know - does it feel more spoon shaped in the kicks, or if you have one of those boards or anything BBS does it feel like that?

Right now Iím skating an 8.25 x 32.125 Black Label and the shape and feel does seems quite similar but off the bat I think the Zero is a tad bit steeper concave wise. Of course that could be due to where they are in the press stack and the mold used. I suppose itís pretty safe to say this board came out of BBS.

The Black Label boards I had recently were on the mellow side, so that sounds about right.

I think too with covid, some of the boards that might be allocated to one distributor or specific brand have been reallocated to another, just to get the boards out there, as per a Real I just picked up without a number pressed on it, but any which way it is the good wood.

If I'm not wrong the DSM ones could be leftover inventory from when they were still pressing in China. I don't keep up with their brands and graphics much but late-2020 I think they went back to Mexico, just before Chris Cole got back on the team.

https://zeroskateboards.com/pages/d3-2020

Around my neck of the woods I've seen boards from this series with the DSM cut-out and the laser etching.
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"?

It's not uncommon for companies to get dwindle or other Chinese made boards for the markets outside North America.

That one was the first non stock pic from shops I have seen of the top of the Zero boards, everything else just being generic shape of board with wood grain and zero logo or something, but the wood grain was the same throughout all the boards, so I knew it was just the art version.

Still yet to see any others in shops though, so I don't know if it is some or old stock or what here in Australia.

The 7.875 I bought actually came in at just over 8

With the small wheel base didn't really do it for me either. I was expecting 14.25

Anyway my point is I wouldn't put much stock in the dims they do provide

i dont know any with those exact measurements but these are pretty close:
primitive makes 8.25 x 31.75 - 14 wb
anti hero makes 8.12 x 31.38 - 14 wb
the anti hero is one of my favourites, its really short.

Magenta were much the same as Passport, and the 8.5 was short (too short for me) at about 32, some listed as 31.9 with 14.375 wheelbase, which is about right for the one I had in the shop a while back.

Another place has longer dimensions on other boards

https://www.skatedeluxe.com/en/magenta-gore-dreamer-8-5-deck-black_p139592

width: 8.5"
length: 32.25"
wheelbase: 14.5"
nose: 7.125"
tail: 6.625"

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

Hopefully I remember about that 8.12 ah when the time comes for another deck. The sizing follows the same ratio as 7.75 on 5.0: .12-.15 overhang. Itís also the limit of what my personal skating does ok with, once I go past 8Ē truck, no good comes of it.
Thanks for the reminder

Does anyone know for certain where Zero boards (specifically the classic graphics like this one) are currently pressed? I thought for sure they were BBS but this one doesnít have the usual made in Mexico/skate at your own risk sticker. It does have an etching for the width, but no other stickers or markings.



Still BBS. Sometimes they run out of stickers or just forget them. The width stamp thing is something they've been doing more often. I've seen it on birdhouse and deathwish decks too.

 
besides baker/deathwish anyone know of any 8.25 x 31.5 ?

This is my preferred dims so I could ramble on forever but I'll try to keep it simple. Do you have a preferred wb or concave? Also note that the baker 8.25 ia actually 31.8, however the birdhouse 8.25 is 31.5 and a better shape than baker in my opinion.

14" wb options

- Blood Wizard has a good 31.6 shape thats very flat.
- If you can get ahold of one, the strangelove heart skull 8.25 shape is between 31.3-31.5
- as someone else noted palace, evisen, and colours have a 31.5, i think its a stock dsm shape..never skated one so cant comment

14.25 wb (lots of ps stix)

-  old WKND (like before mid 2019 or so) is probably my favorite 8.25 x 31.5. Its got a nice tail and a huge nose. If you somehow find one of these buy it. If you hate it ill buy it off you.
- some PS Foundations are 31.5, theres also a 14 wb one but i haven't seen one for a minute. Flat and mellow. Great shape.
- clutch O shape is nominally 31.6 but the two ive had were both closer to 31.5. Medium concave, medium tail, slightly steeper big square nose. Easy to find and very good alternative to hockey/wknd/snack style decks. Coda uses this shape and I suspect the newest run of pizza is all clutch O but I haven't confirmed yet.
- some older PS FA/hockey 8.25 are 31.5, again hard to find now but great shape

Toy machine/Foundation has a mellow PS shape thats supposedly 31.5 with a 14.5 wb, but the one I got was more like 31.75. Its also becoming harder to find PS tumyeto boards (unless the latest run which i haven't seen are back on it) and I have no idea what the new ones are, only that they're china wood.

I'm probably forgetting some but this should get you started. Keep in mind that some PS boards are measured with concave so their tip to tip length will be like a half inch shorter. For example quasi 8.25 is listed as 32.125 but its actually 31.75 tip to tip. If any of these look good to you and you're having trouble finding one shoot me a PM. Any time I come across a short 8.25 I bookmark it, so I can hopefully point you in the right direction.

Just saw some Baker boards in the shop, they come with the deck with punch over the front mounting holes
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"?
