Depending on conditions, it will last you a handful of runs.

It will come off within the first run. Not worth it IMO.

Thats what i think too.. i was lead on to believe that it might preserve the real wax job for a lil longer as well as make ur board glide better

That is the "selling point" that is more theory than reality.

the only kind of rub on i've ever used was the paste kind that swix makes. it works but only for a run maybe 2. the only reason i even use it on occasion is if i'm in a competition and its hard to get speed for some of the jumps, in that case it worked fine cause i only really needed one run but other than situations like that its not worth it.

I've only used it a handful of times (cuz I got some for free), but it's not really for the recreational rider.

IMHO, it's designed for racing, one run and done. Finds you a couple of tenths, a few mph for a run or two. Then you give it to your tech to redo. Not something that's intended to last longer. Depending on how abrasive conditions are, you might get more out of it, but it's pricey and you'd be better off paying for a hot wax.
