Dakine Super Tune Kit 2010

Dakine Super Tune Kit - Snowboard Ski Tools And Tuning Reviews & Sale | SierraSnowboard.com

Hey I would like to start doing my own tunes and waxing. Is the kit worth it? Comes with:
-Large multi pocket case with zipper
-Adjustable temperature tuning iron
-Edge tuning tool
-10 [ 25 cm ] file
-Wire file cleaning brush
-Metal scraper
-10 [ 25cm ] wax scraper
-Pocket stone
-Ptex (2)
-Octane Bar ( All Temp Wax )
-Scotchbrite pad
-Tuning tips

Or should I just buy the Iron itself and get everything else separately at a hardware store? I know I can use a reg. iron from WALMART, but I would like the temperature thing.

Thanks in advance

That is what I first got when I decided to start tuning my own board. It is definitely not worth the $85 but is a great kit. I got mine towards the end of the year, the price had dropped and I think I only spent $50 on it.

i would just put together a kit on your own. i do recommend spending a little money on a ski/snowboard specific iron, because its just easier to use and control. pick up a decent edge tool that you can switch out the file or stone. everything else (brushes, scotch-brite, scrapers, etc) you can pick up on the cheap at a hardware store.

Drop $5 at Salvation Army or Goodwill for an iron. You don't NEED a real wax iron if you're patient and willing to play with temp settings. Heat is heat is heat, the wax doesn't care. Once your temperature is set, tape the dial down or put a mark on it. Done.
