The benefits with square tail decks (in my opinion) is that you can usually pop straight tricks such as kickflip and stuff that doesn't really spin straighter, especially nocomplies. Other than that they're just more fun to use and when I got used to them it felt so good and honestly much better than a normal shape deck. In the beginning of using them it might take a bit of time to get used to it. My friend who is used to regular shape decks is still struggling with kickflips on a squaretail haha. It's up to preference I guess, I love square tail decks at least!

Nice, thanks. Ordered a Bawsewood deck and he accidentally sent me a square tail. He said I can send it back and get a normal shape if I want. I'm trying to decide what to do haha.

I'm strongly considering it. My only concern is after I get used to the square tail all of my other normal rounded tail decks will feel weird

Not at all. I make square kicks decks and it doesn't mess up anything. Just like having 29 am 32mm trucks. riding one wont make you feel weird on the other.

Excellent because I decided to just keep it. I'll post a pic in the set up thread. I tried a couple kick flips and it didn't really feel too different which is probably a good thing, but I'll have to sesh it to really feel it out...but that will have to wait until tomorrow

It's been a while since I last came back to the scene. Anything new? Noticed that instagram is the thing now. Anyone in particular to follow? Last time I checked 32x100mm were the norm, is it 34mm now or what? BRT 3.0s or Ytrucks x5s around? Last I was here berlinwood released 33.3mm decks.

Here's an Instagram Topic with the people around here:
http://www.fingerboardhq.net/t15034-instagram

33mm is pretty popular at the moment, but everyone should use what feels comfortable. Most of the companies still make 32mm.

Nope, BRTs 2.0 Ytrucks X4 are still the latest stuff.

Has anyone here tried Homewood or Emanant? I'm looking into getting a second set up and those are two brands I'm looking at for my deck. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Nice, they're kind of what I have been leaning towards. Do you know the length of them if I got the mid shape in 33mm?

If your screws are long enough , maybe try to put a nut on the other side on the baseplate part and see if you can tighten it like a nut and bolt haha.
Can't think of another way besides glue or lots of tape
