Currently using a G15.

Can anyone recommend a heavier deck? It feels quite light to me...

Speaking of this, I'm about to order ytrucks and oaks. Do they fit together as nicely as winks and BRT's?

no, FBS just came out with some spacers for Ytrucks to be used with single bearing wheels such as oaks to make them fit better, unless you can get your hands on a pair of oak dual bearing wheels (been trying for 6months and never see them in stock)

Edit: BRTs and Oak wheels will give you a heavier setup tho. i used ytrucks and a g15 for a little bit and felt it was way too light as well. brts and oaks made a huge difference

The G15 I had used felt pretty heavy to me! But yea BRTs and Oaks will help in the weight department too (I like heavy fingerboards as well).
