I bounce back and forth between those two sizes. I'm not too picky about wheelbase but I've become quite a stickler for the nose and tail being big enough. I like companies like Quasi and FA that are doing the real squared noses and tails, but I can deal with it being rounded as long as it's roomy enough like an Anti-Hero or something. I recently set up an 8.25 that was really tapered like a football shape and I couldn't deal with it. The nose and tail felt tiny even though the board itself was still an 8.25.

Same here, prefer bigger fuller shapes for my 8.25/8.38. WB can either be 14.25 or 14.3x. I can't stand tapered/pointy shapes.

Thing is I like 8.3s with both WB, super rare to have 8.3 with shorter WBs tho, on average.

(soz annoying Q's)Been looking at this madness shape board basically since the brand started but never seen one in person.

Anyone had one, thoughts? Does it taper more than it looks? Thunder 149s alright?

Not that one but I have the square 8.37 x 31.6 shape and I hate to admit it's one of my favorite decks in the entire quiver. Mines the mild concave mid kick mold, not sure what that one is. I skate it on Thunder 149 hollows and its perfect. I've been skating it as a wet weather setup for months just to try and kill it and it still feels great.
