Gunmetal or sabres?

Looking for a all round truck was thinking about 46 deg. Any body used either or both?

Search silverfish forum. You can read about trucks all day. Or longer.

Been there and done that it made my eyes bleed. So on another tangent have built some Indy 215 hybrids as I struggled with all RK trucks I'd tried in the past.

You don't say how or where you want to use this set up. That may determine what degree of baseplate you go for. Setting up trucks to your liking is all about the bushes you use IMO. Most trucks can be made to work to your liking with the right bushing set up.

Good point TonyB, it's for sliding and a bit of bombing. Like I say I've gone for hybrid indys mainly due to the low height. I've tried randals Paris and tracker all RK and not really taken to any.

Both are solid trucks, the bushings you choose will dictate the feel of the trucks. That will dial either you choose in for the intended use
