Hey L D Pumpers, Please see attached. This set up pumps average to below average.

What can make this sing? I have the ability to change out the truck sizes but not the truck type. Can change smaller parts like rubbers, wedging etc, Delrin cups etc.

First 2 pis are front trucks
last pic is back truck







SET UP

FRONT 6" Bennet with tall barrel riptide 85A on the bottom and khiro short barrel 78 on the top nearest the kingpin tensioning nut
Cindrich 15 degree base wedged at 7 degrees extra
Orangatang 4presidents 80a 70mm facing inwards to shorten the truck width

Back 6" Randal with riptide tall barrel 85A on the bottom and short 90A on the top nearest the kingpin tensioning nut
De- Wedged 5 degrees
Orangatang 4presidents 80a 70mm wheels facing inwards to shorten the truck width

Deck measurements where the truck axle bar runs across

At the front the deck is 6"

At the back the deck is 8.75"


Pumps only average but once up and running becomes slightly better
With a slight incline it slows down gradually  and Comes to a complete stop with the rider smashed from trying to pump up a slight incline

I tried the same set up with a 39 inch long board and had the same issues.

I surf so i have tried different pumping styles and know someone with more LDP experience would pump this way better, but it would be a much harder pump for anyone and wear you out a lot faster reducing the enjoyment.

What would make this pump better for a 200 lb rider and a 75 lb rider

Appreciate your help

What's on the last pic? Assumimg the direction of the baseplate is right, it looks like it could be dewedged more. Try to experiment with the wedging at rear and also at front. The first pic is front truck, right? I would wedge it more..

Yep the top pic is the front .

Both wedgings are facing towards the front of the board.

Last night i tried 2 x 7 and a 5 degree on the back 6" randal ( with wheels turned inwards to reduce total width of the back truck and a 7 plus 5 degree on the front with the 5" bennet truck with wheels facing normal

It pumped way better but i think i need to play around with the rubbers as my son is 70lb and knows how to pump to a certain extent but is having troubles

The rubbers are khiro top and bottom now and are both 78.

The backs are around 80 and 85

What rubber duro do most use with bennets and randals?

Thanks for ya help
