There is some full retard going on here. Wax is certainly a factor in speed, but how is it not understoos that it's only one of many factors involved---and not nearly the most important.

My NS Raptor 159 and T.Rice 161.5 were bloody fast, both of which would be faster than other boards I've owned such as a Bataleon Goliath 157 and Lib Skate Banana 159, regardless of what brand/temp/formulation of wax you put on each.

18 Snoplanks Asym Fish . 18 Arbor Terrapin . 17 NS Maverix . 17 NS Twenty Five . 16 NS Swift - 14 TJ Brand Retro Fish
18 Rome Katana . 17 Burton Malavita Wing . 16 Burton Genesis X
16 Flow Talon
