It will stop you cold over the handle bars. A base is built to be used with wax. It's pores absorb wax. From the start I said all the tech on a board is important but you guys wanted to discount wax and I think that's wrong.

And your argument with the 150 waxed or 160 unwaxed, 150 all day on variable snow.. There are a lot of things that make the board fast but that lube called wax between the snow and the board, that's what makes it a rocket on almost any snow when done right.
Lets be clear here. No one discounted wax altogether. This is what started this whole argument

That does make a difference but not more than wax
You are stating that wax makes more of a difference than base type, camber profile, edge tech, stiffness, length etc.
