OG
Yellowood maybe? or is that more of a medium
Flatface decks are kind of on the high side too

Smooth and Evolve have the highest kicks of any 32mm deck we've used. Can post some side shots if useful alongside BW or whatever as reference?

Guys, I know this has probably been asked loads before, and I've already ordered a new set of BRT's but I'm just curious whether it'd be worth getting a set of Ys as well?

I want 3 nice completes, but I really wanted to know if there would be a big difference using Y Trucks or just using my Indy wides and get some Witchcraft bushings for them instead of spending another £30 odd on more gear?

Anyone have Indy wides and Y's who can give me a good comparison?

I'm sorted for wheels, getting some FF BRR edition wheels and I'm ordering another pair shortly too, I'm just wanting to know more about Y Trucks, they look nice and I always thought they look better than BRT's but since getting a set of those, I can use any of my other setups well at all, I dunno why but I struggle to do the tricks with those setups which I used to manage no problem, but since I got the YW deck I find it amazing to use, but my other setups are hopeless now, I really have to put loads of effort into pulling trucks off on them, but the YW makes grinds and even flips a whole lot easier.

I just don't know if it's worth order Y Trucks when I'll have 2 sets of BRT's and Indy Wides, so if someone could explain if they have any benefits that my current trucks don't have (except the kingpins that's obvious) that would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

They take dual bearing wheels which BRTs doesnt. They dont look like shit. They feel more well made to me than BRTs.

I had 3 sets of y's and traded them all for brt's. The paint on them wears away very quickly, they are also extremely light.. which I actually dislike. This causes a lighter setup therefore giving you less control because your board will fly around a lot more rather then going where you want it to go. Also they work best with Dual Bearing wheels which cost a fortune over the long run. Also the kingpin nut system is just annoying to deal with.. annoying to change bushings with and take a while to remove the kingpin. Brts are the better way to go in my opinion because they are more reliable, spare parts are readily available, last longer, perform better and cheaper in the long run. But once again its all down to preference happy

I have Y's now. I had a pair of 29mm BRTs way back. Didnt really like them, but I plan on trying out 32mm BRTs.
Honestly, If you have the money, getting a pair of Ys cant hurt you in any way. If you like BRTs more, sell the Ys.
I can really compare, but of course, its all preference.

A very subjective thing, truck selection, and I think you'll find polarised opinion is split pretty evenly between BRTs vs. Ytrucks. So while Ytrucks aren't my thing personally, the weight and out of the box bushing softness are undoubtedly part of the reason why a lot of folk prefer 'em to BRTs.

What I think you will find more consensus on is that both Ytrucks and BRTs offer a great experience, and as you already have Blackrivers, I'd suggest going with Ys is no bad thing... As I say, many people prefer em, and you won't know unless you try!

Thanks guys, Mikkel I never said Ys look shit mate, total opposite I was considering them long before I got my BRT's because I preferred how they looked, but found my current trucks going for £25 which I just couldn't turn down so grabbed them, and I stuck them on my Ambition which is pretty dead as far as pop goes and instantly noticed an improvement, then I got my YW and stuck them on there and was blown away.

I was quite used to trucks being fairly tight, but I got some FF Team bushings and tried them out and I'm really loving how loose they are, but they don't look like they'll be very durable, can't wait to get my package from Trent to try his bad boys out though, and because I ordered 2 sets and managed to get some spare cash I thought I'd just order another set of Super Silver BRT's to stick the bushings onto.

The main reason I was asking about Y Trucks is because of the way the baseplates slightly stick o it toward the nose and the tails, I thought maybe a set of Y Trucks on a YW would stop this.

Not that it affects the performance any, it works brilliantly, just little things like that annoy me, also how some of the screws are barely even threaded into the baseplates yet on some holes they've screwed right through, must be down to bad countersinks, but overall I'm impressed with it.

I was just comparing them to other trucks. In my opinion Y's are the only ones that look right. I can't stand the look of BRTs.

Ah, sorry I misunderstood you.

I've never tried them but they were going to be the first set of decent trucks I bought until I found these BRT's cheap, I couldn't not buy them at that price, and I really love how they feel.

I'll maybe pickup a set next month just to try them.

What's the size of veneer, which is being used to make decks? In milimeters. I'd like to make a few custom designs for a deck (for fun) in Photoshop/Illustrator.

Guys/girls, I've been looking on FBS today and saw these bushings called O-Ringz Revolution, does anyone here use them, and how are they?

I have other bushings ordered anyway, but I was wondering about these ones.

Thanks.

yeah, i have o-ringz on some china-trucks. They are okay, can't say anything negative about it.
They don't fit on every truck, like bollies for example, because the kingpin is too short. Then u need a longer kingpin, like the FBS xKingPinz.

Thanks man, I might just order some to try them out, they only have a drawn image of them so I haven't seen what they actually look like, but the image looked decent, gotta be better than using washers and ordinary o rings on China wides, or my TDLB Indy trucks.

The other bushings I've got ordered are for my BRTs, dunno how long they'll take to arrive here in the UK though, hopefully not too long.

Revolutions break really quickly and easily sad
Even the 'hard' ones are mad soft, not worth the money :/

If you want some loose bushings go for witchcrafts happy

I've got 2 sets of WCs coming, I had to order directly from them as TNP had none left, I'm in the UK, so I'm hoping they don't take long.

I'm using FF team bushings and I like the real loose feeling but they are already starting to wear out, pretty much just the same way the o rings that came with the China wides I have tbh, the washers end up flattening them out.

The Teflon ones are holding up though but trucks are well tight, even with just the one washer.

I want my Witchcrafts. happy
