Guys at the shop said the same thing. They said the Thunder lows usually bend when you hit huge gaps, but not from flatground. I still like them the most out of all trucks though (when I did have non-defected trucks). I've been trying out Indys for the last couple of months. Just the raw standards. I hate that they weight like 20lbs. Feels solid and secure though. And do they make Indy lows now?

Yeah they do make lows now. Haven't heard much from them. People generally say you can't tell the difference at all anyway. Indy's are heavy as fuck. I know a couple of people who ride Tony Hawk's new truck company Theeves. I'll probably get them in the next two weeks and give them a go. They're getting a lot of reviews saying they're better than indys in all aspects. But all titanium :S? Sounds like another gimmick.

holy shit @ those bent thunders lmao

i pretty much ride thunder, indy, krux...anything except ventures because of the shitty design they have when you put them on/take them off.

i had tensors and idk, i just prefer something more solid feeling.

Think I'm going to give these a go. Long shot. But hey whatever I've never bought trucks before I just use my friends old ones.

^Woah what the fuck man? Thats probably a manufacturing defect you might be able to get warranty on that. From flat ground only? Unless you weigh over 100kg that doesn't make sense haha. Try and see if you can get warranty for them. That puts me off getting them now smh . Might just get the indy lows.

Once i got a pair of indys, ive never even though about getting anything else. 129's till i die

Skated some 129's the other day on my friends board. Shit is solid. It turns well and it's really stable. Buuuuut. I skated some Theeves and ended up getting a pair instead. Give them a go. I've got a couple of friends that skated Indy's for years but then moved to Theeve and claimed they're better.

I used to skate back in fresh/soph year of HS, but I quit since. Cause for some fucked up reason, I would always be inclined to sprain my ankle. After I healed from one, it would happen again just a month later lol. Does this happen to anyone else? I bought those ankle braces from Pro Tec, but it was hard to flick

my best deck yet has been: Krooked, Ricta, Thunder, Bones Reds
For shoes: Vans Chukka Low, Adidas Campus Vulc or a Blazer SB

Fave skaters: P Rod, Koston & Mike MO

what do you guys think of skating Blazer SB's? Hard to get used to I found.

Ventures turn worse than pretty much any other truck and are weak. What is the point of a light and low truck when it is a piece of shit?
