I'd say they mostly equal out. But if I see a graphic that I must have, then the graphic would be the determining factor.

Combination of size and shape for me, but I'm swaying more towards size.

I enjoy trying different shapes, but if a board's too wide I won't bother with it.

I wont buy a deck with a shitty graphic.
I wont buy a deck with a shape that is way out of my preference.
I wont buy a deck where the craftmanship is bad.
I wont buy a deck thats is much wider/longer/shorter than my preference.
I couldn't care less about rarity unless all other factors score a 10.
I wont pay $30 for a deck i don't think is worth $30.


With all the decks that are avaible i see no reason to not go for the "perfect" deck, rather than buying the first one you see with a nice shape.

That said, i think what is the most important aspect for most of the kids today is hype. But that's not on your list.

I gotta say shape and size equal but I voted shape... it could be made terribly and look awful and be not even close to rare but if I like the feel of it I will enjoy the deck for a little while

I look at all of them except rarity.

And what also matters alot to me is who/what is behind the company I'm buying from.
For instance, I'd rather buy from someone who has a passion for fingerboarding and his/her products, rather than someone who's just trying to turn a quick profit off of the scene.

True that!!!!! Peeps will pay a ton of money for the hyped deck that might not even work out for them shape/size wise. scratch 

I personally go for size, now that I know what works for me!!! When I first started I'd go for price/graphic. Now I could care less how it looks as long as it's 33.5mm/98mm

True words Mikkel.

For me: Shape > Size > Craftsmanship > Rest
