Monza vs. Goode

Monza vs. Goode is the question.

Whats the differences between the two skis? Please share personal experiences if you have them. I have a decision to make soon!

Well here's my It seems to me that there are two types of slalom skiers: those that can make an HO work and those that can't. Well, maybe there's a third group, awesome skiers that can ski well on anything but I'm not in that group! Last year I was upgrading from my 9100 and tried a Monza - I think I gave it about 10 turns before calling it quits. It just plain didn't feel right. I ended up with a 9600 and I love it. My take is that they are all fast, stable skis across the wakes, the differences are in the pre-turn and turn. Goodes, D3s, and to a lesser degree the 6AM (which felt slightly HO-ish but not bad) settle in after the edge change and carve a nice turn whereas the HOs don't really carve, they just kinda turn back towards the boat in a yaw-type motion. I don't like how that feels. I would try both to see which one suits your style/preference better but if you're in Indiana and have to make the decision soon that might not be possible. YMMV, etc.

I agree with ski36short, either you love HO or love something else. It's a feeling and either you get it or you dont. I know that I have said it before on here but I absolutely love my D3. HO just doesn't do it for me. They feel like work.

I've just bought a goode 9200 LTD, i'm looking forwards to seeing how it rides. I've been on a mapple a bit, and liked its ride, hoping the goode also rides deep like it.

I just sold my Phantom Truth if that helps. Prior to that I had an Old Mach 1 which I enjoyed. The Phantom I just never felt confident on.

You can get a Mapple very reasonably right now. I don't think I will ever exceed it's capabilities and it is kind of amazing how it ski's. That being said I will ski anything and own an s-load of skis.

I think the Mach 1 is a tunnel style ski, and the goode would ski better for you the truth is more of the current syndicate style.

I've got a Monza!

I've got a Monza & it has been the most difficult ski to set-up that I've ever owned ( Came from a 02 Phantom) . I did finally get it , but what pain to get there. If you can try skis before buying , that would be the best. Goode's are great skis , But I will not buy 1 until they start putting in inserts!

yea inserts would be nice, you can put them in though. try jagersport.com they've got some information as far as how to do it.

Really just keep checking your screws to make sure they're firm, and they work out very well.
