been looking for an egg that i can use with 159's.

i've been thinking about getting that chocolate couch shape, drilling the nose to be shorter and using that as the tail. drilling a board seems easy in theory but maybe hard in practice. like how do i get the thing to stay completely still?

Villani 9.12 board is perfect with 159s. Deck tapers so truck fit flush.

There was an 8.3 egg around by Heroin before. And the Krooked Cromer "Lil Snuff" was 8.38

I didn't even see your reply until after I posted and went back to check, but yes, same thoughts!

Most egg shaped boards taper a lot, so the 8.3 DLX egg is about right for 8 inch wide trucks over the bolts, Cromer Waving Hand or other Krooked boards, but they might be a bit scarce depending on where you live.  There are still some in Australia.

It is also known as "Lil snuff" or "football shape" but it is the same board.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

Yeah the Bighead yellow ones. They actually roll pretty decent. I've cruised on the board about 5 times to 7-11 and to a few spots. Have not had a problem with cracks/rocks or anything. Only complaint is that I've had to adjust my bearings in them twice. As in smush them in again twice. 2 wheels became a little stuck. Never had that before, unless my 1992 memory is off. I just remember flatspots from then. I usually use 52 Bigheads, BUT I think I may size down to 50 from now on. I've got some 52mm F4s on my 7.81, and I may be in the minority, but I think I like the cheaper wheels better. Albeit, because I'm used to them.

I've got some boardycakes 44s that I'm pondering using on my Lotti showgirls (I bought this to hang, but the shape is perfection - I may not contain myself. I've set it up twice then took the trucks back off - ha).

This combination will unlock triple kick flips for you.

That looks great.  Wonder if I could get away with running 139s on that with a wider wheel like conical fulls?

Broke my Deedz football on flat tonight. :(

TBF, it was 34, and I landed hard on the nose a handful of times.

Board was great though! R7s stay super crisp.

I think the Deedz is too narrow for my size 11s. Flip tricks were great on it, but slides and even crooks were harder with the narrow nose & tail. Plus my 8.25" trucks are a little wide and I don't want to buy a new set.

Here's to hoping for a 8.5-8.75 football, 8.25 over the trucks and <14.25 wheelbase.
