Are you saying that your unwaxed sintered base is only going to be marginally slower than when waxed?

I have not tried TBT yet... closest I've tried to that is the Combo Platter from Forum. I do agree with you that base shape makes a big difference though. Wax does too.
Leo, i think you may be mistaken. He is the one arguing that base shape does not affect a boards speed as much as a fresh wax job does. And as soon as someone argued the point he seems to have changed his point of view to suit.

Im with you, wax makes a small difference, the big factor is the shape of the board and the camber profile. Which is exactly what i said t begin with, i have no idea what this dude is on.
