Anyone know the nose/tail length of the 8.28 shape?

Pretty sure both the nose and tail are longer than these dimensions as listed on Tactics, but not by much.

Maybe more like 6.825 nose and 6.5 tail on the one I had I think, but still fairly normal all up.

https://www.tactics.com/real/harry-lintell-oval-828-skateboard-deck/brown

https://www.tactics.com/real/mason-eyes-828-skateboard-deck

WIDTH (IN):   8.28
LENGTH (IN):   31.7
WHEELBASE (IN):   14.125
NOSE (IN):   6.75
TAIL (IN):   6.375

Those dimesions don't add up to the length correctly anyway, short .2 all up.

Trucks are 4.25 wheelbase 14.125, nose 6.75 and tail at 6.375 adds up to 31.5 total, so a tail at 6.575 adds up to 31.7 as stated.

I can measure the one I still have (not here right now) and correct those numbers as needed.

Best webshop that lists all deck dimensions is r-fskate.com from Japan, they list measurements in metric.

Couple listings for 8.28 shape
https://r-fskate.com/shopdetail/000000017391
or
https://r-fskate.com/shopdetail/000000017393

According to that site tail is around 6.4 and nose around 6.8 for Mason 8.28 shape.
There could be slight differences between same shapes based on deck location in stack.

Thanks for that shop link!


I need to keep that shop site in the quick links as they are so good with dimensions, pics and info - seen boards there before but never remembered to go back and check.

So their measurements equal 6.88" nose and 6.38" tail, which add up correctly to 31.7" total length and would definitely have been too short for my liking, which is why I would have passed it on.

Those guys who skate that shape love it though, so I can understand how that could be good for the shorter street skater.

Anyone know the nose/tail length of the 8.28 shape?

I have one. My measurements (with a ruler, on top of deck, which did NOT bend with curve of tail/nose):

Tail: 6.43
Nose: 6.86

Measured with a tailor's measure tape, from center of baseplate (e.g. mounted truck) to end (e.g. effective length), and did bend with tail/nose:

Tail: 6.187
Nose: 6.687

Also, Tactics tech specs can not be trusted. At all. It is often grossly inaccurate

Are the Full SE and Manderson the only DLX that are 8.25 or 8.38 with a 14.25? I know the black Eagle is 14.25 and the 8.5ís are as well. I believe the black eagle is longer than the 8.5 right?

Blk eagle IS longer than the 8.5s. The 8.4 comes in closer to 8.25 than 8.4. That, also, has a 14.25.

How do I get this site to be in English?

Both Chrome and the Microsoft browser come up with a translate option, on my computer.

Not sure if this will still come up on another browser or on a mobile though.

DLX boards with 14.25 wb:

8.125 x 32 black eagle and other graphics in that shape

8.5 x 31.85 blue eagle and most graphics in the 8.5 size (but there is a bigger 8.5 too)

8.4 x 32 (assorted graphics from all brands)

8.38 x 32 (Manderson shape)

8.12 x 31.32 (assorted graphics)

8.75 x 31.75 (new shape AH board)

8.25 x 32 Full SE shape

Thank you all! I was thinking of setting this up with thunders but the tail seems kind of short

Itís weird.  The tail is just a TINY bit shorter than my usual 8.25/14.38 I ride (we are talking like 2 16ths of an inch), but I can TOTALLY notice itÖmostly on any blunt variation.

That is exactly where I was feeling it too.

Blunt and ollie to tail variations just didn't work the same with shorter tails, even if it was only a tiny little bit shorter.

I was skating the shape 8.12x31.3x14 for more than a year now and there was always one available either through AH or Krooked and sometimes Real. It seems that there is none currently, also not in the catalogs. Anyone knows whats up? I am based in Europe for the record.

Shapes will often get released every second drop, if not every drop, just to provide maximum coverage for the less popular shapes, so that short 8.12 size might be one of those.

I know there were a number of boards from older drops still around, so doing the usual 8.12 search might come up with something.

There are a couple of weird 8.12 listed on the Real catalog, so not sure if they are the longer 8.12 x 32 with 14.25 wb or shorter - I am going to go with the longer versions, as a few sites have them at 32 length, but at least the red Real board is listed as those shorter dimensions, so check for that one.






DLX is really good with getting back to people, so even get on the DLXSF.COM website and use the "Hit us up" in the top right corner to ask them about that shape.

Appreciate the info, thanks! Lets see if I can find some older drops around, I habe been looking for that red one actually. My Main concern was that those Boards with 8.12 width are currently listed as 14.25 wb which got me concerned. I will hit up dlx

I'm working on tail slides now and this is my main concern lol. I might stick to the 8.38 shape and just deal with the extra length

For all those people missing the FULL shapes, I had a look back through older catalogs and this one might be the winner for the most FULL shapes of almost all sizes, but also might be the last catalog with any at all.

https://www.antiheroskateboards.com/spring-2020-drop-1/


There are too many good ones to list, so I will just leave these two, which were more unique shapes that I don't think I have seen again before or after, the Evan 9.1 and Robbie Russo 8.75 sort of an egg.

Anyone know if the 8.4 and 8.5 shapes are any different outside of the 0.2 inches in length? The 8.5 measured super close to a 8.4 last I checked so it seems kind of redundant to have both in production

A couple of things to note, apart from the fairly common assessment that some 8.5 width decks are not actually 8.5 wide, as follows:

The 8.4 is true to size in the boards I have, at 32 long with 14.25 wheelbase and really good sized kicks and a decent straight shape, staying 8.4 right through and rounded kicks.

The standard 8.5 x 32.25 with 14.38 wheelbase is also a really good shape, slightly bigger than the 8.4 all round (width, length and wheelbase) and definitely an even 8.5 width in every board I have of that size, good shape and normal kicks - a bit more pointy than the other board but still fairly rounded.

The increasingly more common shorter 8.5 x 31.8 with 14.25 wheelbase in every board that I have has also been true 8.5 width, although this is the one most commonly said to be not 8.5 and more like 8.3 wide from others, the board tapering ever so slightly and just felt like the tail was a touch shorter, with the shorter length overall.


People like all three for various reasons, so depending on what you are after, the 8.4 is a really good size and shape overall, ever so slightly more nimble than the shorter 8.5 size with a better shape.  The shorter 8.5 if it is actually more like 8.3 might be more what you are wanting in a slightly narrower board too, but I guess it is just luck of the draw depending on whether you actually get an 8.5 or something not so wide.


There are other shorter versions of DLX boards coming out too, so if you were more keen on wheelbases closer to 14, hold off for a bit and see what else comes out.  Real floral series are already out now, with others following.

^ 8.4 has a longer nose than the 8.5 (14.25wb), too.

Also, in my experience, the 8.4 was a tad under 8.4 I've had three of them. All three came in at like 8 5/16ths (8.312).

Yeah they are definitely not as wide as the usual 8.38 x 32.25 with 14.5 wheelbase, which is a hair under 8.5 anyway.

Kind of funny, but that is just how they are.

I want to like the 8.38sÖbut I just canít. Nose/tail a have ever so slight ďfootballĒ type tapper to them that freaks me out. The 8.25/14.38 is the best deck ever produced in the history of skateboarding (II or III stamped).

Iím loving the 8.5 with 14.25, but never see that 8.4 in production. How much smaller are the kicks on the Mason? I dunno what it is about the 8.5 but it flicks and skates better than my normal 8.25 BBS with the same WB and general shape.

Nose and tail on the 8.28 are like 1/16th shorter than the 8.5/14.25. It's a tiny amount, but I seemed to REALLY notice it on any blunt-type tricks, and on nose/tail slide; tail/nose felt too short to me.

Just measured my Grant Taylor 8.25x14.25 with the MS Paint looking eagle and itís 8.3 at the middle and bolts. This was measured with the concave.

It is a funny one.

The 8.5 is not as wide as 8.5 (as others have said) but the 8.25 is often wider than 8.25 from all the 8.25 boards I have had.


Iím loving the 8.5 with 14.25, but never see that 8.4 in production.


There is usually one 8.4 in every other drop nowdays, last one being the Taylor Debris deck, before that Grosso Daily Suck, this current one from AH:

^ thank you all for the detailed breakdown. I might try the 8.4 at some point. I have one more Krooked 8.5 from earlier this year that I just set up. I impulse bought a 8.28 Harry Lintell deck and love it with indys but the kicks are kinda short for my liking. It's been hard finding a shape that I truly like long term
