I was speaking of the brand, not the man. Brand seems to be fine, obviously I don't have access to their numbers, but they're making and selling trucks.


You shouldn't have been considering my post you commented on.

Semantics, po-tay-to, po-tah-to. And more to the point...YAWN.

They have to exist before they're Randal killers. Randal the truck, not Randal the man.

Paris seems to be doing the most damage to Randal, out of any of the "Randal Killers." Gullwing has really stepped up their game, as well, but they seem to be solely at shops that sell Sector 9. I'm not sure if you can buy Gullwings separately, from shops that don't stock s9. I've thought about trying the Gullwing Chargers and bombers, but I won't buy Paris trucks...For me, it's Randal or Grizzlies all the way .

Earth to Gob - Vipers aside, there are a slew of precision machined Randal killers currently on the market.

Prototypes Plus 1st Addition
Kahalani
Chocolate
Cindrich
Bear Smokies
Radikal
Dragon Talon
Munkae
Jimz
Confederate
Magun
Aera
Zealous
kooky
666
Fux
890
Surf Rodz
TouHous

With that kind of competition, Randal should have took whatever Sector offered and ran as fast as he could back to his depression on the beach.

Has Confederate started back up? Last I knew, Chris disappeared sometime around November of '07, and nobody had heard from him since.

edit:
To nitpick a little detail about slob's post, to me, a Randal killer was in the sub-$50 category. If I recall correctly, the cheapest trucks on that list are the Zealous, which ring out at about $150 for hangers. Unless you're some dude who's got a prototype run of the first design of Zealous trucks in his basement

If you want to base your thinking around cost, so be it. I'd rather have a truck that out performs regardless of cost.

There's a reason Randalls are so cheap.

We know you like expensive stuff, slob. But forgoing semantics, has Confederate started back up? Does anybody have Chris's contact info?

I'm not arguing there's not better trucks than Randals...I'm saying the Vipers are Vapor, so they're not in the race AT ALL.

And I agree with slavadov a Randal killer will have to also come in it's price range to count. Hell yes, hi-zoot, unobtanium, CNC'd hunks of heaven are crazy fucking cool super duper hi-quality pieces of art...but give me something in "everyday" land to compete against the Randal, then you have a valid argument.
