Default Recommend a wax for cold temp, warm temp, and all temp

What brand wax would you recommend for cold temp, warm temp, and all temp? Where is the best place to get it?

I love Dakine Nitrous Cake. They have it available in cold, warm, and all temp. Check local stores, or order some online. I'm having a hard time finding the All Temp at the moment...

I've only used Dakine and Toko wax. I don't like the Toko wax at all. It was hard to scrape for me. The Dakine wax wasn't an issue. And it smells good. It's probably not ideal to be inhaling it, but what do I know?

I usually get Kuu flouro wax from any boardshop and it can come in a pack with cold, warm and all temp. Or 3 sticks of one of the temps.
Seems like all the Americans like Bluebird.

I wanted to try Bluebird but the only way was through mail order, in which case the shipping was about as much as the product. I therefore got some One Ball Jay wax from the local board shop in order to both save on shipping and to support a local business. How much better could one popular brand of wax be than another popular brand of wax?

I've decided to stick to all-temp even if it's not really all-temp since I have nine sets of equipment to wax (four boards, five pair of skis) for my family. The thought of having to do them all in a temp.-specific wax before heading up to the mountain was too much to face.

I really like the Oneballjay X-wax. It has some cons though.

It seems to take a bit more effort to work it into the board, but seems to last awhile longer.

The first time I rode it, I started out in the park and it seemed slow, and it definately "grabbed" on the boxes.

After using it a few times I realized it always starts out slow. Kind of a Break in period I guess??

Anyway, after a few runs, it is awesome. It flies on every kind of snow. On the powder, I swear you can actually feel it repel the snow. You can see it for sure.

I used the cold wax, so not sure about the other temp waxes.

Thanks for the responses....I have used the DaKine, but was wondering if anyone had one that they would call the end all be all of waxes....I will try the OBJ next time.

I have only used Canwax all temp, but I have to say that I felt a HUGE difference. They can be bought in bulk on eBay with free shipping. $60, enough to last you 10 years.

I have also heard really good things about Hertel hot sauce

I have used Dakine wax before and overall I liked their products but I did not enjoy their Nitrous Cake wax. It is a decent wax at best but for $5 dollars it will do the job.

It sounds as if you are not scraping all the wax completely off.

Also +1 for OBJ wax! love that stuff.

I hear hotsauce is good but still not as "Fast" as fluoro waxes, even their own. I have never used this product myself tho.
