: These decks are unparalleled by pop. They have such amazing rigidity and pop. Also, they are all fairly light, only downside is though, the ply's tend to split and crack easier. But for the first months of skating this deck, it is very reliable and has great performance.
: Personally, I am not a big fan of these decks. They are fairly strong, but seem soft, and heavy. Also, they do not have much pop.
: These decks are very good, responsive decks. This is the a-teams mastermind, rodney mullen's new company. Basically, they have the most of the same characteristics of a-team decks.
: These are very strong sturdy decks, but they do not seem to have much pop. However, these are quality decks, and are worth their money.
Shorty's: Chad Muska, one of my favourite skaters rides this deck. The deck is a good strong one, but is fairly heavy. They are not flexable and break easily. Very often the nose or tail will crack off but still it is a very popular brand.
A-team Decks: This company is out of business now, but when they were still making decks, they made good all around decks. The decks they made were lightweight, and depending on your preference you may or may not like them. They were fairly strong, and had super flex. Also, the ply's never ever split, and never really chipped, just dented. The feel and responsiveness is what makes the decks so good though. The mellow concave and light weight, makes it easy to maneuver in the air.
