    Default Caliber 44's or 50 Cal.?

    I know there are reviews on both of these trucks and trust me I've done my fair share of reading on both these trucks so what I want to know is, which will be better for a full freeride setup for a nemesis?

    Comes down to personal preference more than anything.

    I think for solely freeriding purposes, you're probably better off with the 50 degree baseplates because more turning makes sliding a bit easier.

    50's. Or even better, Paris 195. I have a Nemesis and 180mm trucks just don't feel right on it due to the width of the board (10.25"). And yes I know Calibers are 184mm but sadly the extra 4mm don't make a noticeable difference

    It's just hard to decide since I have never ridden a set before so that's what I was wondering on what SF thought

    Do you know what you're doing right now?
    You're calling a Switch a landyachtz drop deck.
    That gun is not called the barrett 50 caliber, regardless of what call of duty would have you think.
    It's an M107. When you call it a barrett 50 caliber, you're referring to the company that made the gun, and the size of the bullet.
    Barrett makes a variety of 50 caliber guns. So calling it a barrett 50 caliber is about as useless as saying "I have that landyachtz drop deck."




    2dthatsme: get the 50 calibers.

    anyone know why 44's are $2 more than the 50's?

    and I realize it comes down to preference, but why is it that people seem to like the 44's more? Is it simply because the majority of the riders buying these trucks like stability for speeds, or that 50's owners aren't posting as much? I could be wrong but it seems like more people post about the 44's

    Actually, WE call it the "Sasser" (SASR Special Applications Scoped Rifle).



    As for the Trucks -go with the 50's if you intend it for "Freeriding".
    For more of a DH board, try the 44's.

    The guy's holding a gun and live's in Virginia. Think he's got you beat this time, man.
    The closest I come to being black is surfing blacktop
    Because I have to keep my head cocked and watch out for angry cops.
    If not I'm burning on that hood white hot
    And I'm wondering what I did just to get myself caught.
