Not sure the exact WB of 9 Death decks, its listed different everywhere I look!
Its definitely short for a 9 though :)

this seems to be the last one of these boards
i hope this dimension is possible to find again. it looks absolutely perfect. i would say the nose is slightly more full too and the tail is a more rounded / aggressive cut.
6.5" tail, 7" nose, 14" wb. it will be on Indy's.

if i get thunders, which i very likely will at some point, i will probably go to the 13.75" wb Real board they are coming out with. i hope other people enjoy these boards too and they keep making them.

been on this for a couple months now. originally i was put off by how much it tapers in the tail but its chill now.

I picked up an Enjoy Thaynan from the ThankYou sale for $29.   8.75 with a 14.25 wheelbase and a short tail.  I haven't set it up yet because I have another board I have only skated twice, but I'm more exited about it after having it in hand.  It really is a nice shape.

Is that the one with the 6.3" short tail? That's the only thing that always kept me from getting it

Listed as 6.3" and I measure at 6.4".  Tail angle is pretty mellow so I don't think it's going to be a big pop angle when the tail hits.  Probably going to set it up with Ace AF1 first, which should give a similar axle to end of tail as some of my setups on Thunder. 

The shape reminds me of boards I skated in '91, like the G&S Shannon May with Cindy Crawford  or the CCS Wrench

At $29, if I try it on a couple different trucks and it doesn't work for me I won't feel remotely bad about leaving it at the park for a kid.

I can definitely see a few more people picking up those boards, given the shorter length and wheelbase but still having a fairly normal shape or brand choice.

Easy to remove the graphics on the stained boards / paint over the black widow too if someone is not so keen on them, funny as they are.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.
