Default Wax polishing

Are these good for polishing after scraping or are they too course/abrasive?

Heavy Duty Scour Pad

If they're too abrasive, does anyone have any suggestions on what to use? Or should I use the non-scratch version of those?

Nah they're what I use. Just grab whatever generic brand there is in the grocery store and save an extra buck.

That stuff will be fine, it gets gummed up with excess wax after a bit which makes it a lot less coarse. Seeing as I now do not work at a place that had lots of scotch-brite available. I use the cheapest stuff that I can find in either the supermarket, or some where like the $2 shop. Works just as good as the stuff you linked (actually the user satisfaction is slightly higher).

I just wax and scrape my Never Summer and point it.... Nobody can keep up

Using the proper wax for the snow conditions is my biggest thing..

All of the other polishing gimmicks, I don't get em.

Wax/Scrape/Point/Going as fast as my balls will let me and still going faster.

Your old avatar was far better. I'm not too anal about my base, but I do buff it with scotch brite to make sure that all the wax is off. Have tried it with and with out, and believe that the buffed base was faster. Either way, it still goes more than fast enough for me.

i used to use the green scotch brite pad for my 0-32 degree wax and the brown one(more coarse) for my colder waxes. But now im more efficient using a metal scraper and was shown that after a good scrape....keyword "good"....a brass brush will do fine if not better. After all that ill use my green pad a few times and cap it off with a nylon brush and my board is super slick.

Yep those pads work great. If it's spring condtions / wet snow, you'll definitely want to be using the brush to texture your base.
