hey..

im considering the Tan Tien board but was wondering what trucks to get..

Randals have a good name, at hopkin they put on paris 180s, at momentum they have the holey ones.. what do you guys think? whats the difference?

any 180 + trucks will work i think.

i personally choose bears, but randals are good as well haha. i haven't ridden paris trucks but people think pretty highly of them.

sooo yeah, not very helpful from me haha. :)
man i run parison mine and they're fuckin boss trucks.
nice and solid but turn enough to smash stand up slides and carve, but not so loose that they feel twitchy and get wheel bite.

I personally wouldn't worry about holeys, i had a bad experience with them and they just sucked. barely turned after a while. just bad.

Randalls are a very tasty truck, you can customise heaps with the bushings and stuff (as with paris) and are a bit stronger (I've found).

And thats it from me
Did you have your top washer flipped? It contacts the hanger and restricts turn unless you flip it. I personally haven't ridden holeys much but I enjoyed them when I did. Can't go wrong w/ randals or Paris though.

Have you got your heart set on a tan tine Paul? There are lots of other boards out there that are just as great and heaps cheaper. Look at the comet Fsm, or maybe the rayne hustler. They will be up your alley for sure.
aren't they all pretty much the same price though?

i'd recommend the hustler. the kicks on the tan tien are going to grind down pretty fast when you stack, and also it's majorly flexxxyyy, so it will only be able to do very light bombs... (i think)
No they aren't

the Randall 180's have surprisingly tasty stock bushings, well for me anyway
i reckon they're defs a solid buy for any board
u just mentioned completely different boards bro...

fsm is a stiff freerider and the hustler is a snappy carver like the dervish. the tan tien is a completely different board for a completely different riding style. look up the BC moray or the pulse can make somthing similar

dude, i just personally don't like loaded boards, i know some people like them but they are a freeride board, so if you're wanting to bomb anything then have a looksie about.
yeah i know... i know paul, this will be his first board, just thought he might want to check them out...

The tan tien and the hustler are the same price from hopkin and the fsm is only about $40 Cheaper. Certainly not "heaps" cheaper. For a difference so small, he may as well just get the board he likes best. If he keeps it for a year it is less than $1 per week more expensive.
