Quick acceleration on the Super Swiss

I've used these for a long time and they are right up there at the top. Tough and quick acceleration. In this case you get what you pay for.
More Speed Please, oh and two = one Mason jar

These are huge for me and honestly I just got them; they've not been ridden. But I do have Moonshine MFG Drifts 80a & 82a and I do like them a lot. I like these because going bigger on my DH setup should mean going faster and I'll take the super wide CP these have. Plus they must be good, they taste the same as my others once scrubbed down with grocery store Vegetable wash.
Something's Odd
Posted on 2020-08-04 Verified Purchase
I have well over a dozen of these high quality stickers on my wheeled Craftsman tool chest.Okay, now the odd stuff. Once applied, they Do Not Come Off without pain and suffering, not to mention the sticker Will Be Destroyed! Recently I've noticed my cart moving swifter but more stable... I need some on my DH board!

it, that is. I've been using the non tall version of this bushing in some Paris Savants 180mm 50's for a while and they're awesome. They didn't seem to need a lot of breaking in and the rebound is nice and consistent.

In this case, you do get what you pay for. These are made from high-quality leather and everything looks to be double stitched, so I expect these to last a long time. I have had no problem with the velcro that the other Skater mentioned. The 'fit guide' that you print out was all that I needed to make sure I got the right size. These are awesome gloves and the travel bag is a nice touch for the price. Of course, I wanted to buy them from Scott here at MuirSkate but they're out of stock and I couldn't wait any longer.
Awesome hardware and shock risers

I have purchased several of these kits in different lengths, they are all good! I actually like the hard to find Truss head bolts for my traditional bottom mount boards too. The shock pads are nice riding on my Mini Fractal.

This little longboard has some sweet Chomp graphics and is great for carving the sidewalk. I put 165mm Paris trucks, 1/4" pads and 70mm 78a Hawgs on mine. MuirSkate is a great place to get your gear. It shipped out right away as all of my other MuirSkate orders have. Scott and team are awesome.
Savant's are sweet and MuirSkate is a champion

The Paris Savants are quality trucks and this version has very cool anodizing. I love the rake on these trucks and the stock bushings are just right for me at 165 lbs. Scott at Muir is awesome! He went way beyond what you would expect to make sure I got what I wanted. Outstanding customer service from Scott and his team. Thanks MuirSkate.
