Good for the moment
I tried 68a barrel with a retro 74a cone On a Homer GoG
the riptide feel stable and when you go in tight turn it works fine and progressive
it's quite expensive but it's good one, We will see how they work at the end
(I wanna see if it still good after few month of ride)

hope it helps a little bit

Been testing also WFB Fatcones in front Foxy and Homer and really like them.
Just got APS barrels to rear truck but no comparison tests against SHR's done yet

YES!!!!!!!!
I recently got a big batch of softer 62a, 65a, and 70a cone and barrels to go in my SK8Kings 2X Front truck. These seem like they'll work great by swirling around in my driveway. I hope to soon put them through a tight techy course. As advertised, they seem to "squish"/compress more than other brands so for slalom use they seem really well adapted for front trucks especially.
