I have- I actually liked the Proto on them didnít like the 8.38 shape and gave it away.

There are 2 8.38 shapes one was used for Gilbert, which I didnít like, but I really liked Al Davisí shape. Now that he is cancelled not sure what else I would get from them.

I second this as well. I did notice though the blessed shape works well for me with 44s

Mostly hit or miss for the other stuff tho

I should clarify I rode the AL shape on Thunder and it was great. I tried the Rizzo shape recently and didnít like it at all on Thunder or Indy, didnít keep it long enough to try Ventures

I emailed Quasi about this (admittedly a few years ago now, so possible outdated info), cause I was wondering about the 8.38's. Reply directly from Chad said 8.38's were all the same shape, same wheelbase, and that any difference in concave/steepness was on account of woodshop variations. I had a Bledsoe 8.38 (Drip graphic I think) that I loved, on the steeper side. Got that Claire graphic 8.38 last winter and it was DOA flat, retired that one early.

hows the mies board? i was gonna get the 8.75 hockey but it sold out so thats my second option. is it actually a true 8.75 or is it smaller cause of the weird ps measuring and hows ps wood? havent tried one yet, all my previous decks have been bbs.

Dunno about the 8.75 but all the 8.5 and 8.25 quasi's I've had actually measured slightly bigger.

I wish I didn't have to look at your sig in every thread tbh. That shit is annoying and usually so are your posts.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think Quasi makes any decks with a wheelbase over 14.25. My JJ 8.5 is 14.25 and not a hair over

My first Quasi Ė the Bobby Dekeyzer pro Ė was 8.5 x 14.25 WB. Loved it.

Then I learned some of their 8.5's have a 14.5 wheelbase. I ordered a mono and a proto deck thinking they were the same sizing, but nope, you can see the size difference. And right now, I'm on their 8.75 which has a pretty long wheelbase Ė 14.75 I believe. 

Anyways, once I get through that, I'm gonna try to stack protos and the JH models when I can find them.

The Quasi Mono 8.5 has a 14.5 WB I believe, a friend of mine had one and it was a lot longer than the other 8.5 Quasi I had, almost felt like a twin nose, the tail was quite long.

Yup, they do two 8.5 shapes. If you're looking at an online shop and they list the length but not the wheelbase, the 32.125 is 14.25 wb, the 33 is 14.5 wb.

Glad I got the 8.5 version, that shapes cool but not what Iím after. Although, I just asked my local to hold me a Pool man board and that ones similar, but 9Ē with a 13.875 WB. Going to be a good cruiser.

That Quasi shape is the worst of the bunch imo.
