Chances are i go with the square lipped ones forsure. thanks guys. (oh and I'm not local, unless you wanna send them to Saint Louis, MO )

and i haven't been able to try either the releases or the advantages. I've heard that the advantages grip A LOT though haha. I'm tempted but money is a little more strapped atm..chances are I'll just do some side set blue RF's. Can't beat that price.
Square lipped yellow rf's = one of the best wheels around IMO. Rad's are a little more gears towards advanced riding.

go with the side sets(blue and orange) if you're doing more downhill than freeride. that lip is there so you can dig into those corners/hairpins. and they still slide pretty well.

I was personally riding the 78a(yellow) side sets for awhile. They slide when I want them to, and grip when I need them to. If you're local, I got some samples from Sector that I can throw you.

have you checked out RAD wheels?

Sector wheel samples sounds like heaven, I am eternally jealous.

just finished a set of 74mm yellow offsets. Awesome wheels for dh, and super fun to freeride once they get worn down

Need a bit of advice. Got checks, regular decent 180s. All can be done at 20mph atleast don't really know how fast I'm going.

BUT for the life of me I can't seem to wrap my head around everything for the switch 180. Any advice on how y'all went about learning them/doing them? thanks and that video is dope!

Concentrate on "sitting in the chair" and keep your legs locked in place, carve into it, and create the power with your hips, not your legs. I'm terrible at learning new slides haha but once i get it I've got it, they take alot of practice to get down.

Yeah, So ALL of this week that's been on my agenda. I assume it's false confidence but this sugar is so ****ing amazing under my feet. I love it.


Anyway...yesterday i officially got em down somewhat. I need more speed though forsure. Feels good to throw a decent standie goofy, end up switch and bring it back though. Winding up and that with my arms, and carving into it seemed to be the most help. thanks though man! it helped!

I was thinking the same... I've been in the market for some new trucks lately, although if I were ever to decide to spend a good amount of money on some trucks I would just save up for some Munkaes.

Get them. I ride billet ronins and have ridden quite a few sets of cast and they feel very close to the precisions. Cast ronins are by far the best cast truck on the market.

Have you ever ridden munkaes? They feel very restrictive and nasty, they are one of my least favorite precisions i've ever tried. Go with cast ronins

Yeah, I want a pair of precisions and I honestly...just can't ATM wrap my head around buying legit precisions yet. But when I found out that ronin's have the support pin, are a trusted legit truck company, AND all precision/cast parts are supposedly interchangeable, and $85 shipped. I can definitely say I'll be pretty close to buying a set by the time spring gets here.

Haha yeah I have a few buddies from AZ and they ride munkaes. I just dont think munkaes can compare to some of the nicer precisions out there, though.

Well they are cheaper end of the precision spectrum. But hey, to each and all their own.
I'm not here to sell Munkaes haha.
Who do you know from out here? Phoenix or Tucson people?

Justin Daily is a buddy of mine. I kinda know Cole Kurtz and then I'm pretty good friends with Jordan Hessler. Not exactly sure what part they are from but they go to school out there

Hey, I know Dailey also! He's actually in my club. He's a sick rider.
I've never skated with Cole, but he looks like a cool dude. I don't know who Jordan is.
Have you ever heard of the Fisk brothers? They're 4 grom brothers who are pretty damn good, especially for their age (at least so I've been told). They're from the Phoenix area.

That's an odd song choice for some 13 year old white kids.

On another note, what do you guys have to say about transitioning from 50* to 44* (or similar degree) for freeriding? I currently ride some Randals and I'm curious as to whether it's worth making the transition, if you guys know what I mean.

Justin is rad! Hes a socal native who goes to school out there, so I get to skate with him a good bit when school isn't in session. I've seen that video before, that kids not bad.

Ha. Yeah, a little odd.
For strictly freeriding, I'm not sure lower degrees will be a huge help. However, they do help with twitch once you start going faster. Its really up to you to experiment and see what you like.
