Yeah...well the top one is for sure. Run Bones, no washers to really open up the truck.

If you have access to a set and are in a warm climate, the film stock bushings or medium aftermarkets are the best things I've run in my mag lights so far. They've got a little more surf than the bones and really let you get deep into that 55mm turn but they're the nipple and formula keeps them feeling firm and stable the whole way. You never really feel like you're going to bottom out or wheelbite. The bones are probably better if you prefer that more responsive, thunder-ish kinda jawn though.

I would rate venom Street formula as a good aftermarket bushing for them too and thunder stocks work as well. Indy 92a cones didn't feel right and the tensor replacement bushings are marginally better than the stocks but still absolute dogshit.

Bones medium are working well in my atg maglights.  Not perfect.  I noticed you canít get loose with these trucks or theyíll wheelbite easily even with the 55mm height (Iím using 53mm wheels). 

Anybody try switching up the pivot cups???

Y'all think the 9.0+ maglight is still on the way? Haven't seen any updates from tensor and their website/ig presence is pretty much non existent.

The last new item I remember seeing from them was a velvet coated hanger (?)

I don't think the 9mag is happening. Even if Dwindle figures it's shit out, unless the truck was 100% ready for production, I don't see them investing any money in it. Same with the redesigned mag baseplate.

I just went detective on the tensor team, based on who in their bio
Daewon had tensors in his latest clip
looks like TJ was riding thunders in SLS
Brezenski had indy
Bevup's riding aces
Gallant's still riding tensors

AM kid Steven removed his link, which if you don't know if you @ someone in your bio, that person gets notified, and can approve or deny the linking to their page, as well as remove the hyperlink. It'll appear as white text and not a blue actionable link. He was also on blind. He's riding tensor in his, "I'm on DGK now" clip, but I imagine if you're a kid and you still got a box of trucks laying around, you're not going to immediately buy new ones.

and since I'm in this tensor/dwindle rabbit hole. Holy shit. I just went to thankyousupply.com
Tensor's $85, a set GTFO

I just got a pair from zumiez for $55 shipped with tax. Just in case the end is near


Edit:
They were actually ďmagsĒ and not ďmaglightsĒ, looks like Iíll be returning them.  Luckily you can take them to a physical store for free returns

i saw TJ skating some redbull contest in SF recently and he was on Thunders too. seeing as he's officially off Blind, he's probably off Tensor, too.

What do you mean? I've never heard of this. Pretty sure there is only one version of magnesium Tensors. The only exception would be the recent Mag Lights that were shipped with alloy baseplates, but that was just a sneaky move from Tensor to get rid of old stock. As long as it's the ATG, you should be fine.

Check out how the marking on the left of the truck just says ďmagĒ and not mag light.  I couldnít find another place that sells this online and was thinking it might be an older version?  The axels arenít hollow and I assume the kingpin isnít hollow either

"Magnesium construction means reduced weight: 30% lighter than standard industry truck."

You should be good to go. Go ahead a get you some after market bushings.  The grind is awesome!

I already have a set of ATG maglights and definitely love the grind on them.  I actually feel a lot more confident on these trucks knowing Iím not gonna stick. And somehow the turn with bones mediums (recommended by Xen) is growing on me. I wanted to buy a second pair because their lifespan seems short either from grinding them away or bent axels.

Anyway they were delivered today with non-hollow axels and kingpin and weighing in at 312 grams, still stupid light and maybe even a more optimal weight compared to the proper hollow maglight? Not sure if Iíll return these yet, could be interesting.  One weird thing is that the sticker on the bottom of the baseplate says $19.99 which is less than what I paid

Oh wow! For me I'd almost prefer the Mag over the Mag-light then. I didn't even know that was an option. I just thought it was an edited photo. That's really cool. I'll be on the lookout for some. 

** I'm even more baffled looking at Thank You Supply site again and seeing that they sell Indy's on there with no regular Mag's listed. lol

WTF?

I didn't even know they made a mag truck without the hollow kingpin and axle.

@metchup what does the top of the baseplate say? I've had a few pair of map lights. The first pair I had said magnesium on the baseplate. The other I had didn't. I reached out to Dwindle and they said, they had to rework the full magnessium baseplate. I'm thinking if the top of the basplate says magnesium, you may have gotten old Zumiez stock.

It says guaranteed for life, doesnít say magnesium anywhere on the baseplate unfortunately
