    I'd say get lemons or higher. I got lemons on my dervish cone roadside barrel board side and I weight a little over 160. This is a very carvey setup, you could definetly go higher or get double barrels if you wanted.

    I actually think you should try sabre bushings. I used to be a huge venom fan until i ordered my fsm and decided to try out some sabres. They seriously blew venom out of the park in my opinion and I would look into them and see what you think. Bushings are cheep anyway so you dont have much to lose

    The durometer chart posted above still works all the same

    Way too simplistic. Rider weight is only one factor in setting up a skateboard and bushing feel is a personal thing and relates to the type of skating you do. A lot of 120 pound street skaters like rock hard bushings and I weigh 220 and ride 85a durometer bushings all the time.

    shape also plays a major role

    cones vs barrels vs elims

    when i had parises on my hellcat (im trying some bears out now) i ran 90a divine barrel / 85a khiro barrel front, and a 83.5 bear pumpkin / 79a khiro barrel rear. Granted, I didn't have that many bushings to choose from, but that worked for me. My friend recently bought some 81a venom barrels, and those things are GUSHY. I want to get some now.
