I have not rode Nosno trucks. I'm comparing them to Trampa, GI all 3 gens, and MBS matrix reg&pro.

I'm just starting to ride them. Two things I like at this point: super easy to switch between orange and yellow blocks, and they turn well.

Third thing: if you ride yellow blocks, with a little work you can actually ride bowls like a skateboard. I'm shocked, I could never do it before.

Slick tires, 100% loose yellow blocks.

Then you drop and do your thing :)

Showhey already bend it. I want to try it and all new stuff(f5 and pro 97 deck) but they seem to me to be unreliable

I do not think that this is an insurance case if you bend it by grinding or jumping. I saw a lot of bended matrix pro and matrix lite. the only hanger which I and my friends could not bend is regular matrix, so I ride them. although this trucks was released 12 years ago

I recently cracked my Tom Kirkman deck :( My board is pretty old and knackered, so I forked out on the complete pro 97!
Can wait to ride it in a couple of weeks. I'll post my thoughts up here, and will be riding skateparks so will see what it's like to throw some turns.
Not sure about the new trucks as they seem quite narrow/weak, but can't wait to try the concave deck and new bindings! :D
If you're not falling you're not trying ;)

I was really studying the pics on the MBS site yesterday. And in all honestly they look pretty cheap to me... So hearing someone has already bent a set doesn't surprise me!

it's not me bend it. Showhey ( rider from Japan ) bend it. Matrix 2 pro
matrix 2 and matrix 2 pro's have the same hanger - they just have different axle.
here is the picture but it is difficult to see something
