I've seen some discussion of them on the Nicholl's forum. They seem pretty expensive. From all I know they make a good snow ski. Look at Goode. Dave Goode started off making ski poles. Later some well thought of water skis. Saw he was doing snow skis a few years ago.

Goodes hook was that his gear was all carbon. What's Fischer saying makes their ski so much better than what's already on the market?

Dumb question, can you post a link to the Nichols site? I tried to get on that site but even after a google search I couldn't find it :confused:

You can demo with Schnitz at Okeeheelee ! It will cost you $100,
which he puts toward any ski you purchase . Just make sure he has the correct sizes & models for you to try out before committing. If you have never skied Okeeheelee you'll be in for a treat , it is Mecca for serious water skiers & warrants a pilgrimage.

Okeeheelee is in West Palm Beach, FL is the $100 for a set with instruction or just for use of the ski???that's a tough area to get to from the northeast...have to start checkin' on some airfare...

everyone has been raving about the D3 Custom X5, gotta just get on one myself...think i've "outgrown" the HO Phantom...

Try http://www.h2osmosis.com @ Trophy Lakes in Charleston, SC. I was able to try a Monza, F1 and D3 there last fall. I left with an early X-Mass present(D3 X5). It was great to be able to test them all at the same time in the same conditions.

How is your lac? ;)

You will not find yourself lacking instruction @ Okeeheelee !

Trophy Lakes is not a bad Choice either.

What year Phantom are you on ? I still have my 02 Phantom as a back-up.

it probably is an '02 or '03, tough to tell...i was on a 68" '02 now the newer graphic tells me it's an '03...what are you skiin' on now???

Last years Monza 70" With Fluid Motion single ! It took me 2/3rds of last season to get it set-up properly. I think I'll wait a few seasons before even thinking of going thru that again. :eek:

Don't buy anything before you try & Don't listen to hype .

My rule of thumb when setting up skis: If Chris Rossi has published non-stock fin and binding locations, start there because they're probably right. I skied his Goode 9100 settings for several years. With the 9600 I didn't go far from stock but Chris didn't have any setting published for that ski since it came out after he went to HO.

Chris did not have much info for 70" Monza nor did HO.They still don't post number for the 70" Monza @ HO! The Monza seems to be very sensitive to boot placement (& fin settings).

I ski girly speed (34.2 Mph) & my PB is 5@35off , Not on the Monza yet. Once I got the set-up , I was doing 2 or 3 balls @ 35off most sets!

BouyChaser, I think the Phantom you're on is an 02, as I had at least 3 seasons on it before the great ski swap of 05.

Want to try my X5 tomorrow? Weather is less than ideal, but I'm dying to get out there...

Nice work! I didn't spend that much time on the Monza; I was probably on a ski one size too big but I don't plan on going back. Once I got my 9600 dialed in last year I could run 32 off/36 without too much trouble. Hopin to break off some buoys at 35 this year...

02 was the last season for the Phantom ,They switched to the Phantom Truth for 03 (not nearly as good a ski)!
