Default Waxing Iron

What irons do you guys recommend and use? I would prefer if it is under $50.
Thanks in advance, Connor

Personally, I use a clothing iron and just wrap the bottom with tinfoil. Toy with the temperature and it works perfectly.

I have a travel iron I bought at a second hand shop for like $5. It folds flat and has a smooth bottom.

Thanks everyone I'm going to go with the Swix FX Iron. Also on amazon I saw this scotch brite pads: Amazon.com: Scotch-Brite 00048011040288 7448 6x9 Light Grey 3m Scotch-Brite Hand Pads: Home Improvement Is the type of pad I should use to buff my board or is there some other "special" scotch brite pads I'm supposed to use? Also should I use a nylon and horsehair brush with a sintered base? Or do you only use those with a structured base?

This was what I bought from REI. It was about $1.50 for the pad.

dude! that's a great idea! why didn't I think of that! i've been using a clothing iron since i started waxing cause it was only $5 at a local used item shop..wanted to save up for a fancy iron to get the even heat distribution (mine has holes for steam) but I'll give this a try first!
