Default Spring tension on Axis longboards

Spring tension on Axis longboards? I turned them all the way up and I can play good with my ankles at about 180 bpm but with my hip flexors at like 100 bpm i am leaning back and struggling.. and when they are loose I can got to like 120 bpm hip flexors but can't play evenly with ankles. So I was just wondering if its one of those mess around till you get the setting you like things r just few ways ?

Agreed. I read recently one awesome guy started on max and just gunned it, and another has about three quarters. I think the biggest thing to do is just stick to one and do the hard yards. If you keep fiddling you have to keep relearning technique.

Personally, I'm cranking about 75-80% tension. I love pedals that stick like glue but I found 100% was hard on the shins. Good, but I run out of steam too fast to stay motivated, so I'm just working my way up. I personally reckon the tighter the better for 3 or 4 note licks though...

Take with a grain of salt. I'm just learning the art of fiddling. (g rated) Before ttwo months or so ago I just slammed one pedal at the same setting for five years lol

Like anything else, don't go by leaps and bounds when adjusting anything. Just slowly back off the tension until things work best. Back it off half a turn and then play them for a few days, if it's no enough, back them off another half a turn until things again jive in the universe.

(wow, things jiving in the universe, it must be early, lol.)

Was thinking the same thing when I read the orig. post…:)…as others have stated just keep tweaking til you find the settings you like…chances are you'll change again somewhere down the road as well..I know I have..
