Posted some 5.0 HIís in the classifieds section if anyone is interested.  $35 shipped...

https://www.slapmagazine.com/index.php?topic=112995.0

Wish I woulda seen this 24 hours earlier; set up a 7.75 board to mess around on and really wanted some 5.0 hiís for it but the only small trucks the shop had were Indy 129s so I just settled for those. First set of Indys Iíve been on in a while too; theyíre a lot more squirrelly feeling right off the bat but Id be lying if I said I didnít miss that surfy turn that they have.
[close]

Dang, bad timing.  I would love to have sent them to someone from this forum.  Those Indyís will serve you well, though.  Great trucks.
[close]

God damn. Fuck I would have used them too!

I ordered 6.1s for my FUBK set up. Ended up getting 5.2s sent instead...

6.1 sold out everywhere else, so I went and bought 159 indys. I always like them, no problem but damn.

So then I just said fuck it, kept the 5.2s and threw them on my 7.75 haha, where usually I would use 129s/5.0

Double dang, lol!!

tried forged ventures on a polar with a 14.5 WB and fuck was it my worst day of skating in recent memory. felt like riding a tank and all my tricks were under rotating. pop feel was atrocious. tried to not bitch about the change so much but it was a unbearably bad experience

Forged on anything past 14.25 is no bueno, feels like you're ollie-ing in molasses. Maybe if you're a taller dude that could work but in my experience going short board (31.6) or long WB (>14.38) is a bad time with forged.
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"?

I've skated forged on up to 14.5, its pushing it a little bit, but its comfortable and stable and I got really good yield on a lot of my tricks even though it took more effort. If I was more atv, skated more gaps and transition and stuff I'd probably prefer it. But since I'm mainly low impact flatground, ledges etc 14.25 is better overall.

14.38 is ok too, but I do notice certain ledge tricks getting a little bit harder even though its more comfortable of a ride.

Was hoping I could find somewhere decent that had Thunder High 148s (trying to retire my Indys). Nowhere I trusted had em. Took my plunge on some 5.6's. Might but a new deck too, cause it already feels too long, but I think a shorter length, and wheel base will make this a good decision. I'm excited. The heat, smoke and my own alcoholism has kept me from skating but I'm looking forward to being a kid again. Open to getting gassed up for joining the Venture gang, or dismissed for whatever reason.

I know there was another gilby venture thread but it looks like he wasn't just borrowing a set up. I have a feeling venture is gonna get even more business now.

If I were to get some 5.6 V-lights, what difference would I experience from Thunder 148s Hollow Lights? 14-14.25 WB decks.

Looks like he either can't find old ass independent or he's a full convert like every other pro. I back it regardless.

Slightly longer WB. More pop because theyíre higher and longer WB. A little heavier and clunkier than the Thunders and a slower, more carvey turn compared to the quick, snappy Thunder turn.

Just re-listed my Venture 5.0 HIís at a lower price.  $30 shipped in the USA...

https://www.ebay.com/itm/293738088072

Ordered these from JB77, thanks JB77!

Now I gotta get a 7.75 deck.

Iím rocking 5.2 lows rn and it was fun for a while but I clearly need higher tricks. I could go skinnier though. Excited to see how backside 180ís feel on these 5.0 highs. That is one trick that performed much better on my previous trucks, Indy 139 highs.

i've skated indy 139 polished for a long time but lately been skating 8.38 so i'm thinking about making the jump and trying out venture's 5.6. just can't decide between getting a hollow or the regular? can't seem to find any hollow's atm so might just settle for regular 5.6 high's. are they any heavier than indys or lighter?

I am into 5.0 hiís. I got some with a green Eagle and 53ís and it felt like home, didnít have to try to land stuff. Looked hideous and I stopped riding it. Got to get back to it.
5.2 lows are great, but I need to ride an 8+, if I go back to bigger boards....

They do pop heavier because they extend the WB out 0.25" more than Indys.

Standard Indys add 3" to WB, standard Ventures add 3.25" to WB.

I stopped into Nowhere Fast shop in Beverly Ma today. I was looking for ceramic super reds bearings.

They got mad 5.2s I looked quickly but venture was the entire case almost.

Maybe Indy is over?

This is true. As long as you stick with a wheelbase that's not too long you will get used to it in a session.

rotations are coming around a little slow on 360 flips with forged plates and 14.25 wb (17.75 wb axle to axle). would the shorter wb with cast plates help this out? have a pair i can swap with a friend but wouldnt want to try it if its all in my head

Yes. I'm running hybrid on the dlx. It's got almost a 14.5. I also have changed my tre a little again.

I hang my toes off little higher on the tail when I scoop

The front foot is little more below ctr board than usual.

This has been bugging me for the whole day: is it the hanger or the baseplate that make the Venture Hi or Lo? And does anyone know the height difference a Hi versus Lo of a similar model?

Lowest to highest, measurements are from Tactics which look iffy:
- Forged Lo - 48.3mm
- Forged Hi - 53.5mm
- Cast Lo - 53.5mm
- Cast Hi - 53.5mm

I tried riding 5.6 V-Hollow (only Hi model, no Lo model) with a cast baseplate on a deck with steep kicks and the pop was unforgiving especially coming off 5.2 V-Hollow Lo with a forged baseplate. I thought about swapping the cast baseplate with the forged one to lower the height, but it would add 0.15" to the WB resulting in a heavier pop (albiet snappier).
