can turn much harder and faster

I just wanted to tell you guys how happy I am with my Monsta!  I love it!
I was worried I would have a bit of a transition period going from my 7’6″ hybrid to the Monsta, but it really has not been very hard.  It is WAY more responsive, so that was the biggest part. Today I had some really nice turns and can turn much harder and faster.  It floats me really well and the traction pad is helping me adjust to the right positions during the rides.
I have it setup with the quad fin arrangement.  It seems to be working well.
I have not tried that yet since the quad fin setup seems to be working well, but I am curious what you guys think.
