Anybody have any experience with this Ground Industries board?

I might go pick this up today to add to my collection. I was curious as to if any of you guys had any experience on it. I impulsively buy boards when I can get an excellent deal on them, but last time I bought an old MBS Blade which weighed a good 25 pounds and wasn't good for much especially when I...

No no no, lol, I know what concavity is, it's just differentiating the two. The Gen II blade has absolutely no concavity in the center at all? Well I'm good on the jumping anyhow, that thing is a heavy freaking beast, and if I want to jump, I'll take my light as a mitten Comp 95, or the Pro 100. I f...

Wish I had another to compare. I do know that when I jumped it off the ground, it has enough flex to bottom out (super easily so). Is there a significant difference between the thickness? Ill go head and take a side view shot of it on the ground.

Well it's in my possession now. Albeit, yours is intirely more sexy than mine. It's atrocious the condition mine was in... I'm restoring as much of it as i can. Just for fun I tried out the Matrix top truck swap. It does require that you purchase a new kingpin though since the other top truck is sig...

I'll probably use my comp 95 for hole spacing and the like since I can just put a marker through the fully drilled holes. What I'm probably gonna end up doing it seeing if I can scoop up some snowboard binding straps for cheap (might even scoop up some freebies) and just use the mbs ladder and l-bra...

Wait, what do you mean it will crack if it has concave Mikael? As far as I knew, the concave helped strengthen? Also, I have leftover matrix lite top trucks from when I converted some standard matrix into matrix hybrid pros, converting these old "multi-shock trucks" on the blade into matrix sound li...

Well that's disappointing to hear. :/ Thanks for the info, wasn't sure if the axle size had changed when they re-styled them as Matrix's. But hey, at $65 bucks, I believe the blade would still make a good board for friends to use no? As far as I know, the blade USE to be fairly top of the line corre...

MBS BLADE truck axle size

I put out a good offer for an mbs blade to use as a mountainboard - longboard hybrid. I was just curious about the axle size on the old trucks that come packaged with the board. Does anyone here know? It would be freaking awesome if they were 8". Just straight trade longboard wheels and mountainboar...

Oh I know I won't regret it, I've wanted to try them out ever since I got my first board, where I could notice that when in the center of the deck you can hear a knocking sounds by slightly moving left and right. These were the eggshocks hitting the top of the assembly, and from there on I knew tram...

Oh believe me I would have too, but I have to import trampa, and since I was ordering from mbs anyways I just sprung for the stiffer eggshocks because I like the oranges in the pro, but dislike the yellows in the comp.

I want to mention something about this mod that I have noticed. I replaced the yellow eggs during the conversion and now with the conversion the orange seem to act more like yellows in comparison to my matrix pro's. It seems odd to me but it is certainly true. I never thought I'd have a desire for r...

Well here it is...

Well here it is, my final product after finally getting my bushings in yesterday. The end result: WOW. This mod brought my board to life! I don't know if it's the new bushings, nylon washers, and new eggs, but it made my ride so silky smooth and nice that it even seems to have a ride better than my ...

The amazon order looks like the best way to go as of right now. I just called MBS and they said they've been expecting to get a shipment of the bushings in for weeks but haven't and it caused some problems. (For me included.) Luckily, he said he may just have enough in the back to get me some going ...

I just wanted to clarify here, since my original post is unclear. I'm willing to pay $150 for either RCC construction Pro 95 deck shipped. Possibly a bit more for the retaliation deck.

Well I was supposed to try this mod out on my Comp 95 today but for some reason MBS decided that they only wanted to ship 3 out of 4 items I ordered... So I have everything but the bushings (I ordered tires and eggshocks along with the top hangar and bushings.) Kind of bummed out, because they're cl...

USA: WANTED: Pro 95 Deck-Only

I'm interested in any reasonable offers. I'm particularly attracted to the retaliation deck, but again, I'll consider any offers. I also have a comp 95 deck that is still in fairly good condition. It's in no way trashed but it has been used a fair amount, albeit I've only ridden it for a total of ab...

I've heard about the black tires being stronger in the past as well. I'm seriously considering the trampa treads because punctures every few times I got out is annoying.

@Daleyg3: How is the speed on the trampa treads?

Anyone try these? http://www.trampaboards.com/8-inch-black-trampa-tyres-hard-compound-no-inner-tubes-set-of-4-tyres-only-p-10047.html
I have to import trampa being in the U.S. and all, so I'm not too sure what my best option is.

Brennig, are you talking about these? I wanted to get a set of the blues but if they are weaker I'll resist the temptation. Anyone know? I'm trying to buy tires a.s.a.p.

I live in western Washington, and by destroyed I mean either almost completely bald or the tire has literally forced itself apart. I tried riding on them for a while but after puncture #4 in a week I was just done. I'm not at home now or else I'd attach a picture or the balder tires but you can get ...
