...not implying that I could take full advantage of such a deck, but one can dream...

Speaking of reinventing or improving the wheel . . . how about another run of wheels?  BD is perhaps the most beloved of the BDS wheels, but long out of stock.

aye, another run of BD dubs and minidubs would sell pretty quick I bet. I'd be in for a few sets for sure.

It seems almost imposible to find a modern pool deck bigger than 9.5 z 33 and a 15.5 wheel base. So how about a modern pool machine with a full suared off nose, deep concave all the way through the tail! Measuring 9.75 x 33.5 and a 16 or 16.5 inch wheel base!!! I've never seen one of those! and of course with all of Wes/Bulldogs bells and whistles that make his boards the best!!! Old school Cross graphic would be cool too! While I'm dreaming of the perfect deck here!!!!!!!!

Ouch has a great idea but sticking with more of a BDS/ mellow concave.

OK, most guys skating BDS decks are accustomed to mellow concave or none at all. Everything I have read points to something between an OOT and Unholy Grail. (I may be wrong though). That leads to some ideas or maybe an OOT 2 if Wes wants to play. Very cool to see other folks opinion on decks.

What can I say...I like that wheelbase! hahaha. Having said that, I can fully appreciate some of y'all wanting a shorter wheelbase for a change. I'm just greedy and self absorbed.

how many BDS decks do you have with a 17.5"-18" wheelbase?

I agree with Chris and while I love an 18" wb going one way or the other would be more likely to round out just about anyones quiver of BDS decks. I know I am a minority who prefers 19.5" for most of the parks I ride but that's what works best for some of us so that's the direction I would like to see it go.  I also know that's an uphill battle so I would give in and and settle for a deep concave with a fairly steep tail,  a stingish or mild fishy shape, 32.5" long, 10.25" wide with a 16.5" wb and some killer artwork by Wes. Only then will I sac up and learn how to ride the backyard pool at Lake C.
