I was thinking of getting the reissue Mullen deck that 7.4 deck .. Seems a bit wide for as short as it is and kinda looks like the rails mite not be parallel .. Has anyone tried it out I'm thinking of getting one but I'll only get it if it's functional.. Cuz 99$ is too much to just hang on the wall

I mean it's the old shape that Rodney rode back in the 80's and won all the contests, so it will work.
Keep in mind that the decks were a tad thicker back then.

Ok, I assembled one of these reissues for a customer, and the deck felt kinda flexy under my weight (like 200 lbs.)
Flat, single kick decks are always a tad more flexy when you use the modern 7 ply construction......I need to measure one btw.

The rails are not parallel -- there is a slight curve throughout.

What is the point of the curved rails I have a decomposed Mario stienman deck that's curved a bit, it makes it really unstable to land in a 1 foot rail position or standing in Cooper position, but it seems to get more height on rail flips
