    Da blues vs brass monkeys

    Hey guys, im riding slashers right now, and im thinking of replacing them in the near future. Im really temptated to try the brass monkeys, Because of the size, but my doubt is if they have the same response to slides that the da blues have, and that buttery feel they have. And if they last as long as the da blues do!! Thanks!!!

    I've been riding with brass monkeys for about a month now and love them. The smaller size gives me the rocker I'm looking for (presses and freestyle) and doesn't sacrifice the durability of that the da blues have.

    They are just as buttery as da blues. Pretty much just a smaller version of them.

    Agreed! And not just saying that cause I work at Freebord. I tested these prior to their release and based on their performance and durability, we released them because they are a bad ass wheel. No regrets!

    word I think the brass monkeys look sweet! And I was thinkin they may last about as long as the blues because they have smaller cores? Since Im all about coring my wheels :D
