Honestly its worked fine for me...Particularly over here on the east coast...where are snow is fast most days.
Now my board has run slow when I bought the kit wax and used the yellow in warmer temps...rather than the red???
But hey...2 each his own.
When riding in warm temps, your board is going to be slower no matter what wax you use. Using a warm temp wax will give you better glide. Using grocery store wax is just stupid. And again, your board runs exceedingly slow.
I use cheap wax all the time, but it is snowboard/ski wax.
Using an old iron is fine. I did that for years. A proper wax iron is nice but not necessary.
