    i actually disagree. the blue cs are awesome for the first few mm, but then grip up on you in the middle of the slide.
    when i had them it was the most annoying thing. I would not recommend them for high speed freeriding.

    guess youre not going fast enough...haha cause you're the only person Ive ever heard say that about any rf's. I've ridden every duro, and both shapes in every duro and have never had issues with them gripping up mid slide...

    Dat means you gay den. But seriously never had these grip up on me they perform their best at speed and are ******* awesomeness for everything. I remember dh'ing my 81mm 82a rfs and they were soooo fast, used them in a few push races also very fun. Sliding I would go 76mm I you want them to last a while 73 if you want them to slide best around 70mm (completely broken in at 70mm anyways) and 70mm of you need to avoid wheel bite.

    I had a 70mm 80a cs set as well and had the same mid slide grip up problem, I've ridden many rfs and never had this and my friends set felt awesome, so I think it was a bad set.

    If you were going fast, you were probably doing it wrong. If you weren't going fast, you were definitely doing it wrong, because you should have been going fast.

    I don't know about centersets because I only ride lipped wheels but I love 72mm 80a for everything. They're fast and buttery even when new when you are skating tech dh; once you break them down a few mm they are sweet for freeride. I have 74mm 78a for my haul ass wheel and I'm getting some 70mm 78a as well.

    My friend had a set. He slid them lots without a bearing spacer and he loved them, however I was a bit sketched to ride them because the cores were so shakey after so much abuse. They definitely last forever, and shouldnt slide bad once broken in. As a general rule, anything s9 is should be good.

    There fixed it for you. IMO, Sector 9's beginner stuff is pretty awful in comparison to other companies at the same price point.

    I don't know what your talking about but most of their decks are stupid cheap and pretty decent, all their wheels are great. I can't believe how awesome pretty much all their wheels are. Plus they are all long lasting. 60 dollars for a decent bamboo cruiser or 69 dollars for a large pintail that can be chopped into a dope sauce speed board ain't nothin ta **** with.

    Not sure for the deck. But wheels of s9 all seems legit exept the biothane one.

    Anything that isn't TS Ghost or RF is horrid imo
    Their not DH Division boards sorta blow. Bamboo Flexy W cave on some and essentially zero concave with too much sag on the others.

    I don't know man, I have ridden a bunch different wheels now from the S9 line up all of them have a decent or above average slide and also there are allot of boards outside the downhill division that rock. Mini shaka, super shaka, co-pilot, goddess of speed, deep end series double kicks, carbon decline, and some others.

    Plus most of their decks retail for cheaper than 100 bucks besides the downhill division. If you are looking for something cheap to start out with, it's not a bad dealio.

    Nope not even the time I slid them first. it's either your technique, your pavement, or you don't have spacers in your wheels.
