2. A base has "pores" that open and close.yes...generally due to the heat of the waxing iron

3. An Extruded base can hold more wax than a Sintered base. ugg... i don't remember...something like one or the other
4. With regards to speed, Wax is more important than Structure.[I]wax to match the temp and snow conditions....what do you mean structure...chemical structure of the ptex base that has virgin goat turd irradium graphite cobalt craponite or the fine brush structure of the wax...which is really anal[/I]
Snowolf, Donutz or Killclimbz could we sticker the outcome of this for future reference for all of us? Some myths seem to die hard.
