They're great after they bend a little.  Soon I will offer a Ace conditioning services where I will bend your trucks to their sweet spot for a small fee.

Turn great but my 66's were bent after a few carves and I weigh 160. Some have gotten away w/o bending them and the smaller sizes might hold up better but they need to step up their QC bigtime. Anyone wanna buy a pair of lightly used (one run) ones? They were bent in a perfect bowl so there all tuned up and good to go!

I can help you with that, Tony.  Next time you're out this way I'll take your board for a spin.

I have one board set up with 66's. They turn great,,,,,,,,,,,and release well off coping. Although I have not taken them through a full thrashing. I was 208 lbs when I first rode them,,,,,,,,,now I am down to 177 lbs. (back on a serious fitness kick) I was not able to bend them at 208 lbs. I have a buddy that skates with me that pulls some massive aerials.........I'll see if he can bend them. If they are bending it means that the actual axle metal isn't properly hardened or just a bad alloy. Most likely getting periodic bad batches of axles,,,,,,,,,poor quality control. That's probably why some bend and some don't. 

 Back in the day........ I broke a few ACS trucks right at the pivot,,,,,,,,and Bennett baseplates ,,,,,,,,,,,but never Tracker or Indys,,,,even after the alumimum hanger was worn through to the steel axle! That's quality!

OK Pat - Where did you get coloured 55's from? I thought they only did the smaller sizes anodized.

I mix up my set-ups a lot and been using a set of 44's and 55's for over a year on whatever my current rider is. i'm an occasional grinder and svelte at 235lbs neither pair has bent.

are they the best quality? Nope. They are really responsive though.

ACE trucks=crap metal.
my 55's after ONE session;

that's a ridiculous amount of wear for a 2 hour "old man" session.
