PostSubject: Redemption/Agape review   Fri Jan 29, 2010 7:29 am

A couple weeks ago I ordered an Agape Shocker deck from Redemption Distribution. I finally decided that I've used it enough to be able to review it properly.

Shipping: Shipping was fast and hassle free. I received it four days after I bought it, which is great because it shipped from Jordan out in MI all the way out to AZ. Shipping is $2.00 flat rate for everything.

First Impressions: The deck came in a mini-zip style bag with the tape between the business card and the bag. It came with two Redemption stickers and one Agape sticker. As soon as I pulled the deck out of the bag I said "Thank you, Jordan!" it was that nice.

Details: The deck is standard five ply with the plies going: maple, black, maple, black, maple/graphic. It has nice lacquer(the graphic isn't lacquered though) The holes were drilled to perfection, my Wides fit perfectly. The top is stamped with the trademark "R."

Performance: The pop(I'm referring to skate pop, as in how well it responds to popping the board up) was great. The pop2 (referring to the sound) was crisp and realistic(no dull, hollow sound.) I've had it for about a week now and it is still as stiff as when I got it(rock-fucking-hard.)

---------------Tape-----------------Tape--------------Tape----------------Tape-------------------Tape------------

Redemption Tape(old size) is pretty decent. It is standard neoprene tape with the exception that I'm pretty sure it has a cork base(chemically) in it. It's grippy but thick(2mm.) It breaks in after a nice long sess.

I highly suggest getting it if you're on a budget. The new tape is 1mm thick, which I will be reviewing when I receive my new order of it. With a budget concern, I would recommend this, but if it's not in stock I would suggest getting some Hale tape from the redemption site(Click Here)
