    They slide like hell!!! I'd go with the 99 for sure if you're worried about grip

    Definitely live up to the hype, they're some of the best wheels I've ever had. I have the 99 54mm, perfectly grippy for NJ crusty ground, and an awesome controlled slide. My power slides are at their best.

    Do they have shrinkage problems like regular Spits?

    Do you mean how fast they wear down?
    I wore down the 99s 3mm in 5 moths of doing a lot of hill bombs/powerslides

    How slim is the classic shape? Any idea?

    I hate slim wheels

    ha, I was looking for the exact same thing, I ended up just ordering the 54mm classics. I guess the first run of those is gone. Hopefully the next batch is coming soon.

    Is the full shape like those OJ-ish type wheels? what are the benefits of that?

    I ended up getting the Type-S Barros in 55mm/98a instead the streets in my hood suck so I'm using these instead of my 101 f4s.

    Full shape = wider wheel = more surface area = more grip

    Word from DLX is that that FULL shape is going to be back in stock very soon/to keep an eye out.

    55mm 99a fulls are super good.
    Been riding em for just over a month now.
    Felt kinda weird on tranny at first, but now they feel rad.

    Never owned bones, so i can't compare.

    Finally got my hands on some F4's, courtesy of our buddies at SkateAmerica.com.
    It's been months since i've taken wheels off a board and it's amazing how much difference 3mm makes with 2 sizes side by side. 54mm's clearly dwarfing their 51mm little brothers here.

    More on these coming in the next few weeks once i've given them a good thrashing!

    bought a pair yesterday, when i first put them on i would slip out when ever i powerslided. A day later i have broken them in and they are great, I had f1 54mm 101a when i first put them on i thought they were hard. Now after putting F1 53mm 101a Classic shape on i realise how hard a wheel can get and how good harder wheels feel. Today i finished breaking them in and they were outstanding, I love them. I refuse to buy a different pair of wheels every again, reverts and powerslides are effortless and more fun than before. Granted i havent really skated them alot, I thoroughly have enjoyed them so far even when i stood awkwardly on my board and kinda of did a weird miny powerslide thing and ate shit. Now this is going to sound stupid but i feel like a skate better with these wheels on, just a mental thing which doesnt hurt you in any way. So yeah buy these if you like powersliding and white wheels, also they are more of a creamy colour which makes them look so nice.
