Kind of hard to come up with a good topic title, haha.
I have a few different fingerboards of varying kick height, width, etc and
it's funny that I have certain tricks better on each one haha.

My switch flips and ESPECIALLY my switch frontside/hardflips are much better on my high kick board.
My flips into grinds/manuals, heelflips, tres, shuvs, and backside flip tricks are better on the medium wider board.

Just wondering if anyone else breaks out different boards for certain tricks.

I feel like when I used to have multiple setups I had different boards for different tricks, but with just one (or two) setups not really haha
If it counts I used to sometimes do nollie tres on my old setup cause they were easier? lol

I've got a brutal coming in the post, that I suspect I will use predominantly for old and midschool tricks. Can't see it becoming my main over, say, a weca. Buuuut, yeah, some tricks are definitely easier on certain boards. I think a lot of the higher level skill in fingerboarding is being able to pull all your tricks on any deck, certainly that's what I'm working towards anyway.

I used to rotate between 2-3 set ups and would notice certain tricks being easier with certain decks. But using multiple decks gets annoying after a while because you're constantly adjusting your feel and it made if counter productive for me. Now I just use one set up and I get some consistency

Only thing that comes to mind is riding a Brutal for oldschool/bowl tricks. I have a pretty specific preference for regular boards, so I don't really enjoy having multiple set ups.

I tried a few setups. and I always wind up back with the same one. It seems like I can only land tricks with my FFg14. I have personal noticed I can land some tricks better with loose trucks and some better with tight trucks.

this post inspired me to get my old setup out. 4ply g12 with ytruck x3 and oak rv wheels. have to say I feel like tricks are cake on this setup. so much pop over my g14 with x4 and ywheels.
