Ok.  I'm eventually setting up a 7.5 mid-90s pinner and was told that 5.0 lo's were the best.  Which would anyone recommend for the first Ventures (they're all polished apparently): team edition, v-lights, or v-hollows?  I'm at the mercy of my local's inventory, but yeah.

If you are coming off bigger setups I wouldn't go with hollows. There will be a huge weight difference just with the small deck and small trucks. For me the hollows make it too light.

Only because Iím annoying: regular 5.0 loís are surprisingly heavy. Iíve never skated the hollows/lights, as I donít like the way they feel, underfoot, rolling/and especially grinding. And as was noted above, more weight isnít as much of a concern on a smaller setup.

TL:DR  Iíd just get the cast ones (teams).

Congratulations on getting a smaller setup.

Maybe split the difference and go with V-Lights. Iím skating Hollows 5.0 hiís, theyíre fun but possibly too light, not enough resistance. Interestingly, Venture Loís and ever so slightly heavier than hiís. Ok is definitely right, reg 5.0 loís are kinda little bricks - but might work for you.

One thing with the hollow/light lows: they're even lower than regular lows, like 47mm. So keep that in mind depending on your wheel selection.

51mm is the right answer, think of that beautiful pinch.

Putting risers on Ventures seems criminal.

I used to run a 1/8" shock pad with my venture lows back in the late 90s. I know that was/is taboo but I always felt like it made up for my running lows and 50s on shitty east coast ground.

Also, if you do want risers on Ventures, Diamond fit perfectly.

I found some 90's baseplates in my toolbox that must've been from high school, decided to try out the Krux DLK and slapped some 6.1 hangers on there. Once I'm healed from my back injury, it's on! The kingpin swap was so easy, just like putting in a grindking in back in the day.

how did it affect the wheelbase? im curious

I'm not sure yet; I'll report back after setting it up this weekend and measuring the difference.

I can't skate ice cold ventures. I feel like I'm going to die. I was trying to dork around get a little clip in downtown Salem and I ate shit twice in a row doing nothing.
When they freeze they just shimmy. Ace never stop turning in the winter. It's the only truck that works for me rn.

The V-lights/hollow/titanium are 52mm. They have a thinner forged baseplate.

So Venture folks, question:

A month or so ago, I had some Amazon credit and got some 5.8s from TGM's storefront. I was initially kind of nervous because people had mentioned TGM selling counterfeit Swiss and F4s, but these showed up and look legit. I've skated them a few times, and they're the stickiest trucks I've ever ridden in my life. My regular spot is a lacquered and waxed curb that is super smooth, but these are pitching me over and over. I've skated Ventures on the same curbs before, and don't remember ever having this issue.

Any chance they're fakes, or do me and these trucks really hate each other that much?

Ventures, from the v beginning, weíre the cheaper truck, no?
Iíve heard some grumbling that the metal is a cheaper mix, but I donít know anything about any of that.
My experience is that they need to be ground down some to break in, and then start to get better, but never Indy good, as far as grind feel goes.

I donít think itís the metal, but rather the way the hangar is shaped with sharper angles. Ventures def grind harder and youíll notice it if youíre coming from more round shaped trucks like Indy or Ace. I do agree it gets easier to push through grinds as you break em in. It could be pseudoscience but I theorize the angular shape of the hanger makes for better lock ins on some grinds, so just get your Indy riding friends to break the ledge in for you and reap the benefitsÖ

Thanks for the responses, folks.

Anyone able to ID what size Ventures Gino is skating in this pic? That board came in 8.38" and 8" if that helps.
