Since my time skating, I have tried several trucks but I always end up going back to Independent Trucks. Always. That said, I do happen to get axle slip with each pair of Independent Trucks. Two skateboard truck companies that gave me the closest Independent feeling are Mercury Trucks started by Jamie Thomas and Chris Miller, which is now defunct, and Ace Trucks. I would definitely be willing to try out Theeve if only because of their claim that the trucks "probably turns the best out of any truck on the market." Turning ratio is extremely important to me on my skate setup, so any company that boast about great turning gets my attention.
A little bit about Theeve Trucks from their site:
In July 2007 Theeve set out to design the strongest, lightest and best skating truck to date. The progression of skateboarding into big technical tricks has started to demand more from trucks than ever before. Titanium was the obvious choice when it came to taking trucks to the next level.
Titanium has the highest strength to weight ratio of any metal and is 40% lighter than steel. Theeve has used some of the best computer aided design in the world to create not only a stronger, lighter truck but a truck that probably turns the best out of any truck on the market.
With the unique Titanium alloy blend used in the casting process combined with the 6/4 Aerospace Titanium axle, you get less chance of axle bend and a 40% weight saving over traditional steel axles. Add to this the fact all Theeve trucks come standard with Bones Hardcore Bushings you get probably the ultimate skateboard truck ever made.
