Crocket Hi

I don't want to influence you or impart any bias before you skate it, but I'm curious how that red proto feels to you. I recently got the 8.25 and was mega stoked as I love red stain, but it felt noticeably thicker and duller than the previous quasis (8.25 purple proto, GC acidply, GTH, and 8.37 AD after death) as well as most other PS decks I've skated. I switched from venture hollows to ace 44s and for whatever reason that made it feel a lot better but not in the usual PS way. It still feels heavy and like I'm thumping the ground rather than snapping off it when I pop. I do like it now and the shape is still fantastic as always but I'm curious if its a weird batch of wood or I just got a dud or something.

I’ve skated a couple of Quasis before and they felt ligth and crisp. Hopefully it was just a bad batch of wood. Anyways, it won’t stop me from enjoying it.

Stopped by the skateshop before going skating today and grabbed a surf shape. It was a total impulse buy, but I’ll eventually set it up as a skatepark board

Bought some thunders from one local and paid more than what they would cost online... picked up a real, end racism, deck For the wall.

Went to another shop and got a thrasher hoodie and a sheet of drkrm grip. Also bought a sheet of mob for a kid who was trying to get the cheapest deck possible.

Honestly, I like my raws. If you’re mostly riding skateparks, they’re awesome.

Vans Kyle Walker 2s. Might be my new favorite shoe. They look pretty crazy but they’re so comfortable.

I liked 1s way better. Where the velcro is kinda hurt my feet also I find the flick to be a little odd from what I'm used to.

Quasi 8.5 - Proto
Quasi 8.5 - Logo
Crocket Hi
Spitfire F4 - 54mm conical 99a

I don't want to influence you or impart any bias before you skate it, but I'm curious how that red proto feels to you. I recently got the 8.25 and was mega stoked as I love red stain, but it felt noticeably thicker and duller than the previous quasis (8.25 purple proto, GC acidply, GTH, and 8.37 AD after death) as well as most other PS decks I've skated. I switched from venture hollows to ace 44s and for whatever reason that made it feel a lot better but not in the usual PS way. It still feels heavy and like I'm thumping the ground rather than snapping off it when I pop. I do like it now and the shape is still fantastic as always but I'm curious if its a weird batch of wood or I just got a dud or something.

@Buttfart Rapedick I just set up a 8.25 proto to skate Saturday and I didn't notice any difference. It was from the shops newest receipt of Quasi decks as well. I am also on ACE 44's, and came off of a dead sounding, soggy, month old Hockey, and as surprised the Proto sounded so snappy as I am typically used to the dead sound with ACE.

A few factors my madness has picked up on, my boards sound the most dead with new bearings on ACE. Also pure madness here, how far do you sink your hardware bolts? I have noticed that with ACE my bolts will just keep sinking and tightening but never "get tight", as opposed to Venture where they get tight and stop. I have started bringing the heads right to flush, taking out the allen key and giving another 1/4 turn from just the nut side and I swear my boards have less of a dead sound.

Ok

Nah that checks out to me with ace and bolts, and all the stuff about sound: same over here. Ace feel softer and the baseplate seem thinner, compared to venture.

About to set up those 56mm 97s, classic shape. Excited to try a bigger wheel that isn’t a conical full.

I got a board from the last Carpet drop and I think USPS has lost it. It’s been “In Transit” for almost a month.

It's just USPS at the moment. I just got some records that were mailed to me over a month ago (NYC to Philly) and am waiting on a couple boards that have been in transit for almost a month. They'll come, but they're just insanely backed up.
I know we aren't madness shaming in the gear section, come on were better than this.

- 2 Polar t-shirts
- CF sold out in here so I had to settle with some 53mm 99 tablets
- 2 sheets of Mob
- Indy Ti149 whitout the cross on the baseplate, feels weird.
