The 2007 HO Monza has graphics reminiscent of famous European race cars. Keeping with its race-car image, this ski is not only fast across the lake but also quick to change directions. Some members of the test team found this ski to be temperamental and unstable at the apex of the turn because it creates its speed without much physical effort by the skier. If you are in the right position, it not only turns hard but holds on to angle through the wakes very well. The test team found that the fin settings on the Monza were critical for optimizing all aspects of its performance.
