the only issue with soft wheels for a new rider is they typically don't have the speed they new to learn correctly. at first it's hard to tell yourself it's much easier to do big standup slides(at least 2 parking spaces) without going over 25mph. hence why I always suggest new riders go with a harder wheel. once you get better go to a softer slide wheel. just my stupid opinion.

I never said Otangs were icy...they are just chattery/choppy as hell, and sound like an goat being fingerfucked by Freddy Krueger. Sorry to disagree with your opinions, but I just cannot imagine anyone WILLINGLY riding 86a Stims for a freeride wheel.

Edit: Not to say I completely hate all Orangatangs. The 80a Inheats and 4Prez are fine tech DH wheels
it's cool bro. I ride tweakers. just saying I rode stims and loved them. on new pave they slide amazing

Surf Rodz and Paris trucks are also two very different designs...
yes he does, but that doesn't mean he can't slide them well or that they don't slide well. they slide awesome just as good as any 78-80a round lipped wheel out there. I've ridden like 20 diff types. I think this is the only otang wheel worth riding. and yes they are way different. plus one is precision one is cast. that still doesn't mean they don't lean and turn way better than paris. shit original trucks turn better for a day before you break the hard plastic bushings.
