Danny Sargent and Ed Templeton were the new street shredders for Schmitt Stix and then soon after, the New Deal. Since Vision was partnered with Schmitt, there would be some overlap of sponsors, which is why Sarge is rocking the VSW. I do recall wanting a pair of the DV8 high tops, but I never got them or even tried very hard to get a pair. I stuck with Airwalk. Sargent's parts in the New Deal vids were great. His Useless Wooden Toys performance was raw SF footage with no music so you heard every grind and every screech of urethane. As for 1281, Sargent pulled a switch backside 180 down the Big 7 at EMB. He was one of the first people to do a big gap switch. Unfortunately, he faded from the spotlight because of heavy drug use and that was the end of his pro career.
