When you switch truck brands do you also change your deck WB?

If you switch to trucks with a shorter WB do you also switch to decks with longer WBs or vice versa?

Lately I've been trying to skate the same truck brand (Thunder) no matter the board. That said, I won't even look at a board with a >14.25" WB.

I just switched from indy highs to venture lows on the same deck and while they are totally different, I can't say I would want a shorter WB deck for the ventures even though they extend the axle to axle WB.

In the beginning there was Jack and Jack had a groove. And from this groove came the groove of all grooves. And while one day viciously throwing down on his box Jack boldly declared "Let there be house!" and house music was born.

Yes.

Indys and Ace I will only use on wheelbases 14.38+. absolutely no 14.25 or under.

Ventures I find perfect on 14.25

Nah. Always 14 wheelbase for the last 4-5 years. Ran it with Indy tensor and thunder.
