Anybody have experience with 9” popsicles from Clutch? Looking at a Roger but curious about wheelbase and general shape.

All these wide board options available but it seems like the ones with noses all have too much concave everywhere and with too steep of a kick.  Boards originally with that width (earliest 90s)  used way flatter molds then what's offered right now.  I hate these fat concaved out tanks.  They're super stiff too.  Hard to snap I guess.
  It'd be cool to see a super mellow football series 9.75.  One with a 13.75 and one 14.5.

I had a Blood Wizard 9” pop that was Clutch. Very tapered nose/ tail almost pointy. WB was 14.5, length a shade over 32 measuring straight/ not flat on deck.  The thing that bummed me out is that I have 9” Aces and they stuck out- the deck was more like 8.8 when I measured. It was worse because of the taper, more like 8.7 near the trucks. It looks like they measure before they sand the rails and they REALLY round off the sides. The wood was great though, a little heavy but snappy and not too stiff.

Anyone know the non-listed dimensions of this?
Specifically width at back truck?

As per the pic 9.5 x 31.75 with 14.25 wb.

I don't think the dimensions have changed much if at all from when they first came out, but the one I have with 169s and normal sizes wheels fits well on both the front and back, so I am going with about / almost 9" still. 

They definitely didn't taper down too much at the back compared to other boards, and on another similar deck I have 159s with wide Slimeballs wheels which also sits well.


There is one here (on 215s), with subsequent comments after it (some people saying 169 or 159s were good):

Another one here (that has 169s and looks perfect):

Met someone riding a Heroin 10" with 215s and small wheels the other week, he wasn’t flipping but skated ledges and did manuals, looked like fun. Still fine-tuning my Gonz 9.81 setup and waiting for a 9.25 popsicle to try out, but 10" with 215s is definitely on my list now.

Rad!

Was that the OG (no) concave or the modern concave version?

The OG just has the slightest concave through the board and flat nose, only a turned up tail, which was a bit weird at first but worked for a cruiser.

The modern concave version was actually very steep when I stood on one a while back in a shop.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

This is the modern concave, this is gonna be my main rider so I felt like having no concave or nose may have made a lot of tricks difficult. It is fairly steep, but I do a lot of slappys so I like when my feet feel locked in.

Yeah that would be perfect then.
