A "trick" I do is I use an all temp wax for the entire board. Before I scrape, I put some cold temp wax along the edges about an inch wide and melt that in good. What this does is prolongs the wax life along the edges. Cold wax is harder that all temp or warm so it does not ear as fast. Another awesome product for this is Arctic Hardener.
I do the same thing with all-temp and cold wax but that's basically what the bataleon wax is supposed to do, the wax for the side bases is harder so it doesn't wear away as fast.
