russ short is new-ish...sometime in the 2000s. bought it to replace a vintage Bing full magenta bonzer i had and sold. the bonzers like to go fast! the faster you go the better they perform. when up to speed, the control and the lift is incredible. the G&S is skatey and a trimming deamon. so much fun on clean lined up days. love being able to run the volan chambered flexfin in this classic...the wide leading base of the fin really smooths out the interaction with the V.
