Guys at the shop said the same thing. They said the Thunder lows usually bend when you hit huge gaps, but not from flatground. I still like them the most out of all trucks though (when I did have non-defected trucks). I've been trying out Indys for the last couple of months. Just the raw standards. I hate that they weight like 20lbs. Feels solid and secure though. And do they make Indy lows now?
