I recently (well, end of last season) switched from plastic scrapers to a metal scraper. The metal scraper seems to take the wax off much better with less effort, but I'm wondering if it's possible to take off too much wax so that you end up with a suboptimal job. Should I back off more? I don't want to go back to the plexiglass scrapers. The edges wear eventually and I have to keep replacing them.
im not sure if its possible to take off too much wax since anything left on top is excess anyway but it is probably possible to scrape some of your actual base off if you put to much pressure on it. when ever i scrape i usually dont get it ALL off anyway and just leave a slight layer to be taken off by the snow once i start riding.
