They look like a hybrid of Substance THCs and china CNC lathed wheels.
I know Frostie has a set, maybe he could chime in?

Edit: Gotta say though, the decks look pretty good craftsmanship/shape wise (I just hope they're handmade)

all i wanna know is how they are grip wise because they look like they could be along the lines of oak wheels in terms of grip. if so i would totally by a set

Don't know about the grip but the only way they could ever get me to buy from them was if their decks were called Oompa, their wheels stayed Loompa, their trucks were called doopadee, and their tape was called doo. The fact that they didn't think of that really speaks for their lack of creativity

Apologies for the delay... Just seen this. Loompa wheels are definitely grippier than FFs but not as much as Oaks. They roll amazingly well, and love using as a consequence. Definitely recommended, especially given some of the colorways they do.

Anyone tried their boards out yet? The graphics looking freaking amazing!!! Easily some of the best fingerboard graphics I have ever seen. Shame they dont have a variety of widths though.
