The 2005 Monza was the best one.
I have skied on 05, 06, 07 mine, 08 and then swithched to A1, A2
After the 05 monza, HO tweaked the skis every year slightly.
If I had the 05-08 monzas tuned and ready to go the 05 would be my choice and I can guarantee that it would ski better. But NOT as good as the A1 or A2
