So since coming back to skating a year ago I have only skater death wish and tactics shop decks. Both the same wood, so I wanted to try a ps stix deck and picked a quasi deck because it was 8.125 and over 14 wheel base. Anyone got experience with them? Iím praying the Oregon weather does not make it go to mush! At least for a month or more.
Wait tactics uses BBS? Damn might have to try one.

Personally I like the shape of their 8.0s much better.  They fit Thunders/Ventures way more.  The 8.125 I'd have to run Aces/Indies on since there is like no flat between the kicks and bolts.  Also I like a full kick but a square insanely short one gets kind of old after a while.  Plus it's PS so it feels shorter than what it actually lists.

My favorite Quasi shapes are their 8.0 x 32.375s, 8.25 x 32.375s and 8.375 x 32.25s.  I'd fuck with the 8.5 x 33 shape since it's similar (full bandaid style not FA no tail square kick shape) but it's a little bit too long for me.
[close]

I just got the 8.25 x 32.375 shape. The wb and width are accurate (8.25 and 32.375 ???), but the length is more like a 32, 31.95 ish and nowhere near actually 32.375
[close]

Did you put the length in the WB spot when typing? 32.23 is a long fucking wheelbase :P

That defiantly jibes with the other thread/comment about PSTIX measuring with a soft measuring tape accounting for the concave; truth be told the 'long' measurements have kept me off quasi (AW/Habitat) because I don't like long boards. But that also begs the question of if they're marked 'shorter' boards are, in fact, shorter than what they cite.

Makes me wonder if the FA measurements are done tip to tip even tho they are PStix.

Oops my bad lol. Yeah, I remember I had an 8.5 x 33 quasi a few years back and I didn't know at the time but in hindsight it was long ish but almost definitely wasn't 33. I can't say for sure for the other shapes, but this particular one, as confirmed by someone else in one of the gear threads is for sure a 32 not 32.375

From my experience American companies do not like to answer if I try to contact them, being from EU (especially warrant stuff) . Only one has ever answered to me was indy years ago when baseplates snapped in half (stage 10?), they told me to contact european distro and there they said that shit happens, that theyíre not gonna replace it😄 These days I donít even bother to try, I just suck it up and put hand on my pocket and get new shit. The reason why I asked is that has any european pals notice same thing on ps wood? I mean new Quasi would cost me 88USD, I can afford that for sure but should I🤔 Those shapes are on point tho.
[close]

I would say it's not worth it, maybe once in a while not all the time, damn that is $$$ for a deck.

Yeah, I agree.  Especially since ps boards are super crisp and poppy for the first few weeks, but seem to lose their pop quicker than most. 

Iíve actually been skating several Quasiís in a row because, as a lot of people have said, theyíve got great shapes (at least the 8.25Ē 14.25 wbís I skate).  But would I still skate them all the time if they cost me $88?  No.

Go for it homie. I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on one of those 8.5x33 boards. Currently have a wknd (ps stix) and it hit different for sure. I think I like it better
[close]

is it the same shape Hockey used on this? (8.5x33x14.5):


if so, get it. fucking lovely.
[close]

The few Hockey decks I've had (and the one WKND 8.3) definitely have steeper kicks and a bit more concave than any Quasi deck I've had. But the overall shape is very similar.
[close]

yeah I have to concur on FA boards also having way more concave/steep kicks in the same shape/dimensions as a quasi board

Sincerely appreciate the feedback guys!!

they did, from the research I could find on the internet.. but Iím not sure itís top quality bbs wood. My tactics deck had the weird white looking bumps that turned to little chips and cracks on the edges, might have been something up with the epoxy when pressing the deck. And it went soggy after a month. My death wish board lasted four months and never went soggy, I just finally retired it when it was razor tailed to the point of looking like a shaped kick tail, but since I only payed 35 for the tactics board it was no big loss. If hurting for cash I would give it another shot, I might just have got a bad board.

My last PS Stix got really soggy really quickly l, maybe I got a bad one or they save their better boards for their more popular brands like quasi and hockey. Either way, Iím on south central wood at the moment and itís like night and day...

Every PS I've ridden, except Quasi and one Habitat all sogged out in about two weeks (seems like the max life for most pros if not just one week); the habitat actually felt very different, very thin and cripsy compared to anything I've ridden out PS.

Umm yeah itís accurate. Donít measure tip to tip without including the actual concave of the kicks.

PS Stix measures pre press. BBS doesnít include any concave/shape when measuring. Itís old news.

yes, and I think you mentioned that street plant is another exception to the PS Stix soggy rule?

Literally can't measure pre-press, shape hasn't been cut yet!
If you watch the vids it's pretty obvious the cutters are cutting to length and width, they cannot "see" height or kicks/concave. This is the way CNC cutters work and these cutters are just moving in 2 axis.
If shops didn't cut shapes by length/width it'd be really tough for FA or Alien to use 2 woodshops for 1 shape/size. They probably just send the CAD file to the other shop.
PS Stix might measure flat across the deck with a soft tape.

Love Quasi! For awhile I was riding the steeper squared shape, generally used for the Gilbert or Jake Decks, but I have since switched to the Bledsoe shape that's more Popsicle and mellow.

There is no physical template with CNC. Drafting file, cutting path, cutting speed...
CAD drawing could give you length along the top and/or bottom of the deck, even straight thru the centerline for a "truer" length. But those lengths will vary thru the pressed stack.. see my last comment..

Template stuff is old school. And the templates are scale models, like 1/2 or 1/4 size. I've heard the stories about the old World riders working with Mullen on their shape and how it was art/science watching him make masters for shapes. Seen vids of the Professor doing this too. I'm assuming he has a cutter that uses templates at his Costa Mesa shop for small runs as it wouldn't make sense to have a CNC cutter sitting idle. Those things are probably $100k+.
To transfer this to CNC I'm pretty sure you could use a touch probe scanner, wouldn't need something crazy like laser scanning. Make a CAD file, email it to TJ..


Also
If you measure flat along a deck then steeper kickers will give you longer lengths. Flatter kick, shorter length. Would make it tough to give a listed length unless you said middle of the stack for measurements, some average length wonkiness.

bledsoe shape is my favorite, but i miss the JJ shape that was slightly mellower. Or maybe i got one that was further down the stack.

Lol. Eldee is definitely a human. Heís like a raider on horse back whoís kinda scared to do battle. Somehow he closes his eyes and swings his sword wildly and wakes up in a pile of dead orcs.

totally agree. Should be the standard. Top view + Width length and wheelbase.

Then you should check out skatewarehouse site then. They actually show the side view of the concave.  I know concave varies due to stack but they give you 3 views of the decks.

Just to highlight this a little bit and how much it can vary

https://imgur.com/a/qMqjutG

These are the same model, same size, same mold. PS stix 8.25"...  The one with the green ply almost felt like a different shape because of how much steeper everything was. I was kind of shocked by this so I checked it with boards from other wood shops and it seemed like the mellower concaves (DOA Flat as fuck/SC "E" mold, Pennswood Kiddie Pool) had less difference but the PW ones I had were a 1 and 3 respectively so not that far apart. BBS Antihero boards were almost as bad as the PS ones but I'm not ripping my grip off to check where they were in the stack.

ps measures with the tape flat so all their length measurements are off in my book. does the quasi 8.5/proto 2 shape thats listed at 32.125 really come out at 31.75?

Currently riding an 8.5. Love the square nose. Just recently swooped up the 8.75 because I wanted to try out wide, and hot damn that feels long just standing on the deck.

Their 8.5 x 32.125 shape with 14.25 wheelbase and square kicks is my shit. Maybe the last 15-20 of my popsicles have been this shape. I just bought my third in a row of the same graphic because it's all i can find locally.
There's a lot of hate for ps stix on slap, in favour of bbs, but I think they're great. I love their "pop feel", I find the quality more consistent, they don't chip as easily, and because they're pressed in smaller stacks, there's much less variation in concave / flatness.

how long is the 8.5 tip to tip? the 8.75 is definitely on my list to try once the venture drought is over
Quasi has 2 8.5 shapes. One is listed as 32.125 with 14.25 wb and the other is 33 with 14.5. Although multiple people including one in this thread says the measurements are overshot a bit cause they press the measurer into the concave.

Yup. I think it's the difference between measuring flat across the top, or across the bottom. If you're used to a bbs 8.5, a ps 8.5 will probably feel like 8.625

True! Good observation! Perhaps why my bbs feel more flicky and ps feel like they flip slower.
