We are heading out to the Morro Bay push race but we will be back this evening and I will respond then.

Would like to order a bunch but not really sure what to take..

Is this APS boardside - WFB Roadside a common recommendation?!

And what about the Our bushings feel a couple of points softer than they test, so order accordingly!

How huge is the difference - like the distinction between a standard venom and a shr or even more?

thx

(me weighing 148 and I would like to test them on 180 47/50 Calibers DH, 160 42/53 Calibers push/pump and a 128 Bennett +19* for ldp
btw: pre countersunk bushings as an option for trucks with spherical bearings would be great)

Brad,

Got to spend some time this weekend trying out the blue WFB bushings that you sent me. The board I used is a foam core GS board that Brian Morgan built for me. It's a rockered deck with a 24 inch wheelbase. It's set up with a Seismic 130mm truck on the back that is dewedged 7 degrees and a Randal 125 truck on front on a 42 degree baseplate running flat. i had this deck pretty much dialed in for me using orange and yellow Venom bushings on the front (with a blue Khiro cone as a cap on top). This setup would pump for medium distances almost by itself. I was very used to the setup.

So, this weekend I took out the board to try out your WFB bushings. I pumped around for about 10 minutes so I could compare them back to back. I got back to the car and installed the new bushings. The squeeze test I could tell the bushings felt stiffer and was expecting it to be harder to pump. I pushed off, got my footing, and started to pump. About 15 feet down the trail I could tell that these were going to be interesting. As I pumped down the pavement I could tell that the rebound on these bushings was outstanding. Not too much, just right. The lean on the bushings felt different. It felt like the bushings didn't pack up as much the deeper you got into the turn. I'm guessing that the lube that is built into the bushings had something to do with this. It felt easier to get to full lock without it being too easy at the start of the compression of the bushings. Weird but very cool. They did feel softer than the rated duro but had the rebound of rated duro. I spent the next hour enjoying the pump until I gave into the 90 plus heat and humidity.

I like these bushings so much that I plan on start replacing all the bushings on my current setups laying around the house. These bushings feel like you've taken it to the next level.
