^ That shape looks rad.  Nice long nose and tail.

Stoked to finally get my hands on a Very Big Egg.  Even more rad that it's a guest board for Ira.

Heroin 10"
Indy 215s with bones hard bushings and forged hollow baseplates
52mm F4 Classics
Mob
Diamond hardware

Can anyone chime in on what the supply situation of these is? Didn’t fully understand the info in yesterday’s Heroin live feed on Insta. Are these sold out with minimal online appearance, or were the ones out there early bird sales with the majority of decks hitting stores after the catalogue drops on Monday? I desperately want to try this shape and missed out on the original Bigger Egg.

There were shipping delays getting the decks to most of the shops, the ones you're seeing out in the wild came from shops that got their orders on time. When the catalog drops, the direct to consumer sales start, so they're holding it back to allow the shops that had their orders delayed a chance to get the boards and sell them, before the distributor starts competing with them.

Thanks, excellent. :)

What do you think of the 161s. I am upping to a 9inch deck. It will be them or the Indy 169s hollow forged.

I can chime in before 144p gets on here.. I have 161 hollows on a 9" Polar pop and 9.5 shaped decks and they are amazing. I believe They are my first set of Thunders in 30 something years of skating so I didn't know what to expect. I did have to swap the bushings out for 94's because I'm about 210 lbs. Great pop and they make flipping big setups a lot easier for my old tired legs.

yeah rode 161's today and can't get down with the swirliness of the stock bushings. even had an ace top in. need harder thunder replacement bushings for sure. I also just don't really like the type of turn they offer either though

Jay do you run risers with them? I disliked how these "dive" into a turn(wheel bite) with no risers and with stock bushings. But when I added 1/8" risers with harder bushings it was game on.

You skated 151s @jay_nev ? If so how do the 161s compare?

yes risers. Haven’t been able to find harder Thunder replacement bushings. Kinda gave up.
@Frank and Fred a year or so go I don’t really remember it being too different just wider

Cross posting this from the set up thread for more clout

This board is super fun. Obviously nothing more tech than kick flips is happening, but it's got the feeling you want from an egg board and the money bumps and green dip look sick

Seeing a lot of gold in here lately and I’m feeling very inadequate but here’s my crosspost from the set up thread.

Just set up this bulldozer dildozer at my in-laws.

Ace 55’s classics
Bones Big Balls
Spitfire F4 52mm tablets

There is already an app for skaters. It’s called Grindr

Compared to the last bunch of boards posted here, this is bland af. However, after trying some different shapes I wanted to fuel my renewed love for flat, manuals, and ledges by going popsicle again. To celebrate the occasion, I went all in with Titaniums and a fresh set of Bones Swiss. This is the most luxurious board I have ever set up.

Jart Multipla 9" (going Heroin popsicles after this)
Indy 169 Titanium
F4 99a Classics 52mm
Bones Swiss
Indy cylinder 92a bushings (not sure about these)
Indy hardware
Mob grip

A bit late on the response but thunder 161 are great, had to put dlx super Cush 94a barrel bushings on as the stock thunder are way too soft for my frame.
If you ride over 54mm you’re gonna need risers.

Thanks! Nice short WB compared to most 9" popsicles, only gripe is the shallow concave (hence my planned move to Heroin). Been skating plenty of these over the years without cracking one. HLC is solid.

Width: 9,0”
Height: 32,34”
Wheelbase: 14,2″
Tail: 6,84”
Nose: 7,11”

Thank you bud! I saw those dimensions and was ready to search..but thank you for mentioning the mellow concave, because that's a dealbreaker for me unfortunately.. I need all the leverage I can get for flipping the big boy decks. Thanks again for replying!

Cheers, this one was an odd find of the last 9" popsicle Jart has done in a while, it’s sold out everywhere with no replacement. They used to be widely available all the time, which is why I was happy to run with it and deal with the shallow concave. I think the only HLC 9" popsicle that is currently available is the Sour Gustav Salmon one:



There appears to be plenty stock of the Craig Scott pro model from the Heroin Call of the Wild series, which has a deeper concave:

9.0 inch wide, 32.48 inch long, 14.25 inch wheelbase, 7.5 inch nose, 6.75 inch tail

Can I have the full big boy experience if I get a 9 inch deck but use my 8.5 trucks? Maybe with a 3 speedrings on each inside? It might be just a one time thing so I don't really want to get new trucks, but I really want to try being a man for once

Depending on the shape, there are plenty of 9"+ boards that you can run with 149s. Most 9"-9.25" football shapes taper to 8.5"-8.75" over the trucks. You can also run wider wheels. I have a Tired 9.25" that I use as a cruiser, and I run Indy 139s with it since the OJs I have on it are super wide.
