Husband took it in to be waxed while I was helping my daughter get her ski boots on. When he brings it back there are scratches all over the top of it and one of my union bindings has a big ass dent in the heel cup. How hard to you have to hit one of those heel cups to dent it? So mad.

So, I am buying an iron this week and will be doing it myself from now on.
It sucks to learn valuable lessons the hard way. Lol! As for how hard it is to dent a heel cup, I'd say they slammed it pretty good. I know I'm not nice on my equipment, but I've never dented the heel cup on my union Flites, and believe me, there are time where I thought for sure I should have. Also, my waxing iron came from Goodwill. I think I paid a dollar for it. Don't overthink it, it's just wax.
