    Did they send you any info on stock set up? I would be interisted in knowing what they are recommending.

    The sheet inside the  box only has Monza and System 8 #'s on it. I will measure the fin tonight and let you know where it is at, bottom looks very close to the SS, will find out tonight about that also when I get it home. Flat black paint on the top, easy for touch ups I guess!

    Compared the A-1 to the SS bottom, they are pretty much identical till after the rear boot. The A-1 has rounded  edges and the SS stays with the sharp 45 degreeish edges all the way to the tail. Anybody got an idea what the two differences will create?

    This A-1 finishes a turn like a monster.........as long as you maintain a slow handle.

    What do you mean by "a slow handle"?..do you mean quiet upper body with letting the handle out slowly; then skiing back to the handle.

    That is way off the Monza #s, so they must have really changed things around.

    I'm running my animal boots one hole back
    </p>

    I added a little fin length, much better

    Ham is correct, the A1 can really turn

    I let a friend try it yesterday. He couldn't turn it. I am not sure how well Goode skiers will like it. He skis too far back to initiate a turn on it. It has a huge sweet spot, but it isn't on the tail.
