I thought I would share some photos of my G&S Proline 500 which I got in the winter of 1978. At the time I used to look in the window of Eric Snooks, my local skate shop on the way to school but there was no way I could afford the Big Foot and Shogo Kubo in the window. Anyway I got this instead with some 70mm green Kryptonics which you can still see here. The white truck is an ACS I got around 1990. I believe these days these decks are as rare as hen's teeth but I still go to the shop on it

Nice Deck. Do you remember what the two rectangular stickers used to be?

Yes they were two silver glitter skate shop stickers which looked pretty bad and I took them off around 1980. I should use something to remove the glue residue really.

Geez, whiny little bitches!  Gimme, Gimme, Gimme......

Rollerballs didn't work worth a shit, the 50/50 Yo-Yo's always split apart.  Now I'm with you on a reissue Pine Design, but the pool deck with the routed rails all along the middle sides, connecting into the wheelwells.  That would be awesome!

All the 50/50 yoyo's I have seen and used held up under all conditions without fail.  Are you confusing them with Emotion Slix?

Nope.  The yellow & red original Yo-Yo's where the inner half was 1 color & the other half was the other, would split apart, since they were 2 separate pours to make 1 wheel.  Not to be confused with dyed Yo-Yo's.  The early Yo-Yo's sort of looked like the Emotions, but the Emotions were 2 separate materials & tied together internally a little differently.

the ones i'm talking about may have been dyed..around '82-'84...thought they were like 98a's? single outside conical...i thought they were pretty rad. the new alva's look similar shape-wise. maybe they'll re-issue 'em with some good 'thane.

They already did, 2 years ago.  97A's in white.  You could dye them whatever color you wanted (the OG ones were dyed, too).  Long gone now........
