Board is good and strong! Love the simplicity and have absolutely no complaints out of the box…I’ve even used it a good bit and it hold up amazing. However, I did order skater trainers with these and they still haven’t come in the mail…so the board is great but I question the shipping. Nothing against the board though!
I wanted to learn how to skateboard after all these years and after watching a bunch of Braille videos decided to get this board. I figured at 24 years old I'm both young and old enough to do whatever I want lol. When it finally arrived I ended up spending the whole day rolling around in my garage figuring out my stance, learning to turnaround from fakie and almost landing my first real ollie. I've had no issues with the board so far and seems like everything works fine for a beginner and I assume everyone else too. Bearing roll fine, grip tape had no air bubbles and was in good condition, I'm already looking forward to the next time I have a few hours to get some more practice in and finally ollie properly!
Started watching Braille on YouTube about two months ago and decided that I needed to get back into skating. This board is very good quality. Board feels strong, trucks are very smooth and the bushings dont squeak at all, bearings are very smooth, the wheels are a harder compound but ride ok. It makes a great affordable board. Only problem I had was some bubbles in the grip tape but those were easily fixed. I havent touched a "trick" board since 2006 when I graduated high school but nailed a nice ollie and shuv it ... FIRST TRY!!! This board felt so good it just made me willing to full send even though Im 33 yo. Thanks Braille I'll definitely be back for parts and a new board if I manage to break this one.
This is an excellent product and a huge bang for your buck. As I've said in the past the bearings on these completes took my complete surprise. When I've bought completes in the past, even direct ordered from pro brands, I've always had to replace the bearings fairly fast as the tend to use whatever they can get cheap. I'm not sure if the brand they uses in these but they are amazing and continue to roll extremely well. The board is a feast quality like you would expect from any maple board. The generic blank wheels have been holding up get well. All and all I'd say this probably the best board you'll find at this price point.
