Indy mids vs thunder trucks

Do the Indy mids have any advantages over thunder trucks. They seem to be a similar height.

If you already prefer Thunder then I don't think the Indy Mid would change your mind.

I'm sure people would happily discuss this in Shoes & Gear.

I usually ride thunders and tried indy mids when a friend rode the same deck, wheels were about the same size too.

My personal opinions that might not be similar to yours at all:

1. They turn better, which is pretty useless because thunders already turn great.
2. The pop is disgusting if you're used to thunders. Even though the indies are wayyy heavier, the pop felt extremely light to me. Like you can only use half the force and need to pop a lot quicker. Imagine skating your setup, but with 10mm smaller wheels. That's pretty much what it felt like to me due to the decreased pop angle.

How do they compare regarding wheel bite when riding them loose and with 52mm wheels? Indys as bad as Thunders?

For me it was the same total level, but different engagement. With Thunders if you bite you pitch, with Indy I feel I can sometimes ride out the bite but it happens more often. Others seem to be the opposite. I didn't hate them like some, but did have an issue with the IKP loosening and canned em for Forged Hollows. I didn't mind the weight. But, I do prefer Thunders.
