Well, it's starting to be fall up here in Washington. It's been a great season. After 39 days on the water, the gear is pretty much shot. I have been on a 68" CDX for the last 4 years and absolutely loved it. But now the front boot ripped and when I took it off I saw a 1/4" crack in the top at one of the screws. Time for a new stick.

Currently considering a 68" Monza. Any thoughts???

I'm replacing my system 8 with a Monza ... but I do have a 68" CDX in the shed if you need a quick fix ... I'm in Spokane so shoot me a PM if you want a stick for the rest of summer ... also, Wiley's (out of Seattle) has some good deals on 68" Monza's and System 8's

Monza. Awesome ski when you can ski it right. When you don't, it can kick yer butt. I have a 68" Monza with Wiley boots. I really like it even though I get my butt kicked by it sometimes.

To add to the ^^^^^ The Monza is great but is VERY finnicky about the fin placement. Probably cant expect to take the ski out of the box and ski a PB without some tuning. Something tells me all the top end skis are like that though.

Eh, the goode tends to be pretty much a PB out of the box if you have the fin set to factory specs.

It astounds me how often they do it. But I think for alot of people if you get a monza and find your setting you'll be ahead of the same spot on a factory set goode.

Depends on water and style.

Thanks for the offer. I'm probably done for the year though, so I can take some time...

Was down at Wileys yesterday and they had a couple of Monzas on the rack. Price is, of course, a consideration. So I am also looking at some of the other area shops for a year end closeout.

for gawd sakes, before you buy a monza, make SURE you check with jeff Randol to make sure its not one of those "defective" ones like I got;)

I have a nearly new Monza I will probably be selling. 68", this year's graphics. The ski was used this season, but is in near perfect condition. I recently switched to a Goode. Will be selling blank.

PM if you are interested.

Went from a 68 CDX to a 67 Monza and still smile every time I ride it.

Cool. One question - why did you go down in length with the Monza?
