So after skating for 7 years with low and tight trucks, I picked up some indy highs and loosened those up.
I lost a handful of tricks but the most noticeable was the laser flips and hardflips, it seems low as fuck compared to before and sometimes even underflips.
When I land from a big set it becomes all wobbly and I eat shit, haven't attempted to do hand rails yet with loose and high trucks because after eating a lot of shit from the tricks I usually pull off at carpark I stopped for the day due to soreness.
Just cruising around is much more fun though.
Anyone got tips on riding loose & high or should I just stick what I'm used to?
You've spent 7 years riding tight trucks, you're obviously going to have a hard time getting used to loose trucks... Are you sure you skate legit hand rails ? Or you're just talking about skatepark hand rails
I'm talking about actual handrails.
I rarely ever go to skateparks since cops are handing out citations like a pamphlet.
To give you an Idea of how tight it is, I've always tightened my trucks with 2 & 1/2 threads popping out.
I've tried loosening it to no threads or 1 thread popping out and the board just gets all wobbly to the point I get wheel bite on stairs.
