TLDR: best and worst of drop deck longboards?
My first ever longboard was a double drop Kryptonics, it crumbled after only a couple months but it got me started on skateboarding and eskate in particular, since then I’ve always had a soft spot for the asthetic and feel of drop decks. Tell me what you think of them and which ones are best for eskating!
First drop deck: Kryptonics…actually from Target, it was short, hella low, and hella cheap…1/10 for eskate, couldn’t mount anything to it if you tried, but damn it’s natural to push with
Second: Minority…this one was sourced from Amazon, honestly not awful quality, decent feel and lots of space, really good for stop and go with the length and foot wells…5/10, it’s kinda bad for reverse mount and impossible to forward mount but as a light hub board it’s been great, just enough room for electronics underneath…also not spectacular structural integrity but it’s still going strong
Possibly third: Getting a Sector 9 Faultline second hand tommorow, it looks like it can forward mount with BKB fixed mounts and it’s wide enough for a Tayto enclosure so the plan is deck swap it into a dual kit, which would be dope…the drop is rather shallow but should be enough to index off of…maybe a 7/10?
Vote on all the drop decks you’ve ever used and tell us if they’d be any good as an eskate!!
