Default Mook frames for a beginner?

I didn't know if I should put this here or in the beginner's forum but I just decided to put it here hah...

I'm just starting aggressive skating and I was wondering if mook/freestyle frames would be alright for a n00b or not. I know some people that say antirocker is the best way to start out but I've heard sooo many people talk about how amazing mook frames are so I had to know if I could start out on some

Thanks a lot for any help :P

Mooks are pretty solid frames..but i would say are more geared for higher level of skater..if you want a free style frame, try the kizer M1 frame..they are more"meat" on the them, and will be less squilry than the mook...but i would suggest anti-rocker if your just starting out...

Really depends on the skater. I know I started out anti way back when but I'm now skating freestyle (mooks/F1 freestyles) Honestly for grinding they're awesome but if you're going to be doing any ramp skating they can make it a wee bit difficult i.e. catching grounding out on every lip on every ramp.

Do you plan on grinding a lot? Or do you prefer gaps and bowl riding?

Freestyle frames = grinds
Anti frames = grinds
4 down flat setup = bowls with more speed and agility (turning)

Never start with freestyle. NEVER.

Also, try to get urethane anti-rockers like the 4x4 Horror 48mm instead of plastic antis.

I agree..I dont like plastic anti's..try and find the smallest ones you can though..its way better to have them as small as possible..
