Default Best Soy Wax?

Hey,
I want to start waxing and want to use soy wax because I hear they are hard and long lasting and that regular wax is bad for health and the earth as well.

So are some better than others? I just foound this Green Wax - Premium Organic Ski and Snowboard Wax .
Theres also
bluebird soy http://bluebirdsales.com/index.php?m...&products_id=5 ,
dakine home grown soy DAKINE Home Grown Soy Wax from Dogfunk.com ,
one ball jay OneBallJay Bio Green Hot Wax from Dogfunk.com

Anyone have experience with any of these. Im leaning towards OBJ. Any differences?

Thanks folks

THis will ultimately be pretty vacuous for you, but I have only used the Bluebird soy wax. It works well enough. But in general I think OBJ makes better waxes...

Do you still use it then or did you stop?

How do these compare to the OBJ Meso Fast soy wax? Got some as a gift for a buddy last year and he said it's pretty fast.

i always feel like i'm scraping too much off when scraping it warm (bluebird) per instructions. the wax did seem to last for quite a while though.

anything on the base is too much wax so dont worry about scraping too much off. all the really matters is the wax that gets ABSORBED into the base and the rest is just excess.

You're right, edited my post. Question still stands though.

i'd get those "dry" streaks when scraping it warm. made me want to "re-do" the wax job to try and get it even looking. possibly uneven pressure on the scraper.

good to know about the excess on the base. danka.
