Tbh, this truck weighs as light as the TIH Theeve trucks and the Tensor magnesium's and it's much, much more cheaper and in my opinion much stronger than the magnesium's. I think it's pretty cool how its a hollowed out kingpin and axle, where you can see right through it! Defiantly, makes them really light and so far these trucks are doing me good! :)
Pros: lightweight, durable, grinds smooth, great feel, turns well

Torey Pudwill "Kings" deck. This board features P2 (Pro-2) Construction which includes an oval shaped aramid fiber reinforcement panel which enhances the natural performance and pop of the supporting 7 thin veneers of maple. The result is a lighter board with exceptional resilience, creating a "Spring Loaded Pop" effect. 7.88" x 32". Imported.

Bought the new P2 deck, Just to try them out. To be honest, heck yeah this thing looked great right out of the box. Great design on this board! But I skated this deck and I don't feel any difference in pop. It feels the same as any other deck I skated with. So, I say bull to the fact that they say this has spring loaded pop to make you go higher. I wan'ted to see what weighed less, my new P2 Deck or my old Zero (normal 7-ply deck). Thinking my new P2 deck would be much lighter but there was a great weight difference between the P2 deck and my Zero. The Zero deck weighed much lighter, much lighter! I was disappointed, Plus I had indy's hollow on the P2 deck, the other deck a standard steel tensor truck! I'm sorry I'm criticizing this deck so much but it's true. Just stick with a normal 7-ply maple deck, you be much happier and it be cheaper.
Pros: stylish, cool graphics
Cons: doesn't feel good, too heavy

I would say get your next shoe size up then what you normally wear but then it be to big. I just wish the shoe was a little big longer, just a little. So my toe wouldn't cramp up when I do a trick. Maybe I just need to break in the shoe's just a little bit more. Other than that, the shoe does fit pretty well, so yes this shoe is true to your normal shoe size. -Though, I wouldn't recommend this shoe if you have a wide foot. If your a slim skater like me, it be just fine. This shoe is a nice dress shoe as well, I also like how on this shoe the laces are pushed back and it's great because now my shoe laces don't break. Like all other skate shoe, they will get beat up, for me skating this shoe first day it got a hole in them. Board feel with these shoe's feels kind of odd to me, I guess I'm not used to it yet. The cushioning on this shoe is alright, it could be better but it does it's job and it's not as bad as were when you skate with them your whole foot hurts. Overall great shoe for the price! :)
Pros: looks great, stylish, laces don't break, good grip
Cons: uncomfortable, rips easy, poor board feel, poor cushioning

 Globe Heathen Hi - Men's
Globe Heathen Hi - Men's
Straight from David Gonzalez himself: "If Black Sabbath had a skate shoe, it'd be the Heathen." Nuff said! Suede and/or leather upper. Highly padded tongue and collar. Fully hidden ghillie lace system. Micro-vent eyelets. Vulcanized outsole. Imported. David Gonzalez on The Heathen Hi: "I’m hyped on The Heathen because it’s my first pro shoe and I designed the whole thing to be my style of shoe. It’s got good insoles where you can jump down anything you want and your heels won’t hurt at all. It grips and wears really well. It skates good and lasts. One pair of shoes will last me for a month straight if I want them too. Also, on the Hi, the tongue has a really cool thing where it laces to the side. It’s just a really cool shoe."

When I saw these shoe's online I thought they were the bomb! The texture looked so sweet how it looked like snake skin pattern leather. When I finally got the shoe it was pretty raw (looking at it in person). But here is when the problems already started happening. I ordered a shoe size which was suppose to be 9.5 but it seemed a litter bit larger like a 10.5 even though the tag inside did say 9.5. When I finished lacing up the shoe's, I put them on and tighten the laces up. Yet, another problem occurred. If these shoes had the laces outside of the shoe this problem would have never happened but since this shoe is only a "in-side lace shoe". The stitching that holds the laces in the shoe broke off, just from tightening it! I am very disappointed in Globe and the poor quality of this shoe. Yes, it's pretty cool having the laces inside the shoe but have a back up, (alternative plan), giving the option you can either put laces inside or outside. With that said, I decided to send them back and go at it again to get the same shoe hoping that maybe it was just that shoe and that the next one might be different. But I was wrong :/ It happened again with the stitching.
LOL sorry this was so long xD
Pros: looks great, good board feel, stylish, comfortable, good grip
Cons: rips easy, non-durable, inside shoe laces = bad idea. stitching rips.

A staple in the Lakai collection, the Manchester shoe is as comfortable as it is versatile in skate-oriented performance. Flexible vulcanized construction paired with a tacky gum rubber outsole allows for unparalleled board-feel. Suede/leather/nubuck/canvas form fitting upper ensures a super comfy skating experience. Full-length shock absorbing insole takes all the punishment and spares your knees when you drop off ledges, stairs, and gaps. Grey colorway glows in the dark, eyelets and Lakai Logo polka dots illuminate! Suede/leather/nubuck/canvas uppers. Full-length shock absorbing insole. Vulcanized construction. Tacky gum rubber outsole.

I got these about 4 days ago & I started skating the day I got them. Already went through 4 pairs of laces. From me doing varial kickflips just ruins these :( The left side of the shoe already has a hole! The stitching on the shoe where it connects the laces onto the shoe broke off in those four days of sk8ing. If you buy these shoes, Do not skate in them! Buy them for the style and just for looks!
Pros: breaks in easy, looks great, good board feel, stylish, good cushioning, comfortable, good grip
Cons: poor ankle support, rips easy, laces break easily, non-durable

Great bearings to have! They are very fast and ride's smooth. The only problem I've had is that it got wet so the performance wasn't as good as when I got it new. But that goes for all bearings out there.
Pros: smooth ride, great speed

XblazenX's Questions
 
Aluminum creates a strong base for raw grinding and epic flip tricks. Dimensions: 5.0 axle pair up to a 7.75" deck. Set of two.
 

First Magnesium now aluminum?

How light, and how durable are these? I picture aluminum as being the worst of quality.

Is the new P2 Decks worth it than a regular 7-ply maple deck?

More specifically, I plan on getting this Plan B P2, 7.75 Complete Deck. It does add alot more to the price value but is it worth getting this over a regular deck?
