    Default New softer STFs on the way



    Guess those 99a F4s are making a dent.

    Whoah, they replied to my comment! Kind of cool that ended up here!
    I probably wouldn't have seen it otherwise!
    It's good to know they are making a softer STF. I may have to try it out once my F4's wear down below 50mm.

    I don't even care if they are like the 99a. My 101's feel softer than the last set of STF's I had. Though I would like to try out the 99's.

    To compete with the 99a spitfire f4's I'm sure. Smoother, faster ride on rough surfaces, and more grippy all around.

    Jaws needs a little more cushion.

    Bones has to at least try to stay dominant in the market. They lead in sales until the f4's were released, and a lot of people hopped on those. I've been a spitfire fan since I started, but I'm not against a softer STF. It gives me a reason to try something new. Something I don't do often.

    I can't imagine how the slide is gonna feel like... I can feel quite some "lag" with Bones when sliding. That's probably what the "anti-stick" slide means with the F4s. Giving you the expression that they're more slippery than they actually are because the little "lag" isn't there.

    Imagine 99a Bones STF with that sticking on slides... (Current STFs are 103a)

    My imagination tells me they're gonna skate like Wreck wheels.

    My f4's slide like nothing else. I'm not sure I'm willing to ever give that up. Haha

    So 101a...



    I expect the softer STFs to come in around 79b / 99a

    Right in line with F4s

    very intriguing. i'm probably more interested in the softer STFs than the SPFs...

    so many good wheels to choose from these days...

    Are the softer STFs gonna come in 5 shapes aswell? Imagine 2 different duro STF with 5 different shapes ea. Holy... I don't wanna be a newcomer choosing wheels nowadays.

    Bones STF, 2 duros, 5 shapes. SPF 2 duros 2 shapes?
    Spitfire F4, 2 duros, 4 shapes

    I wouldn't mind trying these new stf's but the 99a f4's are kinda perfect.
