Blue Max vs Orange Crush vs Redline etc

How about sanding it? I sand mine with 800 grit. Sometimes follow up with 600. Not quite as sharp usually hard to get that back. 

 

Also, while we are on the subject of these three....I have noticed so far that either all of a sudden I am squeegeeing over areas that I shouldn't be or it seems to me the redline nicks a whole lot easier..maybe it is just me, but one of my guys has the same problem. Him and I put new ones in our handles and in a week or two we are having us a sit down and sand party for what seems like forever. 

The blu max is 95 durometer and the redline is 98 durometer.  The harder the more easlily a knick could happen. Im a skateboader and the wheels are a similar urethane ranging from about 95-100. The small amount is actually big difference in feel. The 99 and 100s can get flat spots & knicks (uneven skid marks). Softer wheels and it wont happen.

This thread is going to go way off topic. haha  I saved my money for a long time to build my first good skate board. It was a Psycho Stick with Gull Wing Trucks , Bullet wheels and German bearings. I ran out of money and couldn't get grip tape for a few more weeks. I need to get a repro of it. I also want a Christian Hosoi board, just because I always wanted one and never got it.

I think I like this one but time will tell. It's a good in between the two. Haven't had any issues with the redline but damn it's stiff.
