its fingerboards... any one can make this stuff.

anyone can try to make a fingerboard. and even sell it, because some IG kids buy every piece of crap. But that doesn't mean anyone can make a fingerboard. u know what i mean?
I own 'a few' decks now and there are huge differences.

Oh okay! I understand now. It never occurred to me that p-rep was mass produced! I thought they were made just the same as everyone else's, but I guess I should have seen that coming. I mean...how else would they be providing them so cheap with a stock that never seems to sell out? Anyway...thank you for the help everyone! I think I'll give it a few weeks and then upgrade the board and then go from there. I wish I could just go all out all at the same time, but I just can't afford it yet unfortunately. I think I'm going to hold out for a beastpants board still, but I don't know. That flatface G14 some of you have mentioned looks pretty nice too. Maybe I'll get both just to try them out.
ONE LAST QUESTION!
The indy trucks that come on the tech deck long boards...I've heard it's not on every long board. Does anyone know exactly which one I need to buy to get those trucks? I don't live near a toys r us so I'm going to have to order online.

This is one of them. Click image for large version..



You can tell the the difference on the baseplates that are completly square and will have white pivotcups as well as white bushings. Can be found on ebay from time to time or amazon or with a little luck second hand. Might be getting hard to find these in local toystores or what have you these days..

Link to a couple different ones on amazon:

Yeah, berlinwood would be a good choice if you think there is a chance you might loose interest. There is a good chance to get hold of one second hand at a fair price If you want to save some cash. Then if you find yourself loosing that interest, or want to upgrade, you can simply resell the bw and get rid of it pretty fast.

But if what you really desire is a Beastpants and can get hold of a "feral" mold version Im pretty sure youd love that too!

The problem is, a new Beastpants stock sells out in seconds and you need luck to get one. So i wouldn't focus on that, do avoid disappointment. But if you can get one, grab it and don't give it away again wink

Regarding TDLBs: They're great if you get them for cheap. The items Bakko posted are $20-25, that's way too expensive imho. Then i'd spend only $5 more and get professional trucks (Ytrucks X4 raws).

I bought two TDLB before Christmas for 14 each.
the X4 raws are nice but with shipping it cost me more like 45 50ish.
