Can anyone recommend some UK based quality blank decks?

Iíve been looking at the route one blanks but not sure whether to try them or not

The reviews of their blanks are really good, mellow concave and short to average wheelbase if you like that.  Nothing that says where they are from, but one guy likened them to Toy Machine in feel (before Toy went to China)

Not sure what these guys do, but they are in country manufacturers.

I was not skating for a long time but started up again and bought five blanks from Drifter, made in Georgia I think? I like painting cats and shit on them. Dude that owns the company was super cool and helpful.

Theyíve been awesome so far. Iím not super picky but theyíve definitely held up well and are more durable than the CCS blank I started back on. I think Iíll buy more when I make it though all of them in like a hundred years.

BBS isn't too happy to hear about this. May suffer the same fate as Ben Degros.
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 was almost going to tag you in this, but thought you would see it soon enough anyway.

It was a big deal here, with the supplier supposedly not being allowed to name the source of their boards and only being able to sell them if they were printed as graphic decks for reputable brands with a required minimum RRP, so I guess see how that goes for them.

I had / have a couple of the blanks still and although they feel similar, they still don't feel the same as any of the big brands that use BBS for their wood, which I find very interesting.

I talk too much.  Sorry.

don't buy from blankdecks.com their decks (at least the imported ones) are not that good. they're heavier and thicker than a normal deck. they also break easy if you stomp your tricks or are a heavier guy. if you're only skating flatground, they're alright
