Is it abec 7?
Bones are just the best. Period. And how did yo break bearings from 3 foot drop? They must have not been a reputable brand because I go down stuff too but I've been using the same set of Reds for over a year. And a hint about destructo: don't buy anything besides their trucks. There are other companies like element that try to make other products besides what they originally were making, but end up just making crap. There are just a few exceptions.
So far the destructos are awesome. They're the same price as reds but they were out of stock . I found ways to ollie 4 and a half feet so a few days ago I was on a skateboarding jam for 5 hours non stop and I started getting crazy with my high ollies, dropping like 5-6 feet and throwing my board on stuff and after a game of skate, my left wheel on the nose site just didnt move anymore so I went to the front desk and asked for a tool to take apart the wheel and see what happened. I guess an impact bent the shield which caused it to pop out and so the bearing balls fell out. I tried building myself a new bearing out of the broken pieces they have there in the community box thing but I had no luck since it was too hard.
I didnt have reds though.. I had stock West 49 crap bearings. I guess that's why they broke... They were slow anyway but I'm slowly buying more professional parts until I get a good deck since like I said, my old deck just snapped in 2. It had alot of pressure cracks though so I guess I know why it broke now.
Well I bought them because they were what the guy at the front desk recommended. He said that he liked the Destructo ones after the reds.
I dunno, I'll go check... One thing I can say is that my old deck had abec 5's and my current deck had abec 3's. I'll go check which one my new bearings have...
Edit: Yup they're ABEC 7
Here's some footage I got today (me)
A very weird heelflip:
3 foot high ollie:
Yeah my normal ones are 2.5 feet and everyone around me say I get as high as my chest when I Ollie... It's about 3/4 feet... My record is over 3 feet though
Lol. No, sorry. The world record is 45 inches, which is under four feet. How tall are you? Unless you're ollieing up a 7 stair and have pics to prove it, .... If you can even go up a 3 stair then you should be proud. 7 stairs is just an unrealiestic stretch of a claim.
Umm dude heres me ollieing 45 inches.:
Lol sorry I told my friend it's not possible And I measured it now it was 2 feet and a half lol... Nvm it's still high for me since last year I would be lucky to get an inch off the ground. Sorry for the misunderstanding I thought the world record was like 5 or 6 feet lol
How tall are you? And just to let you know, you're suppose to measure up to the lowest point that your board is... so in your second to last picture three posts up, you'd only count the distance from the ground to the tail.
I'm 5 foot 6. In my last pic the board is even though. So I say 1 to 2 feet. I got 4 feet off a drop which was 3 feet tall. (I was at an indoor skatepark today and I didn't take footage even though I was there for 5 hours (from 5 pm to 10 pm)
