I used about a third of a bar my first time and somehow got scrapings on the top side. When I got done, I was a little wtf? It was a mess on my top sheet. As with most things, there's learning curve. If you haven't read the maintenance guide and sticky on waxing, I highly recommend it. You'll use less wax if you understand that there shouldn't be a layer of wax sitting on the base: the wax is absorbed into the base. It's that little nugget that I just kept in my head and while the wax was heavier at the nose where I started, I had the wax amount pretty much dialed in by the tail. Keep at it, and thanks to everyone else for the tips.
Thanks alot man! and thanks everyone for there help!!!
