Iron?

I'm posting this here becaus all of the stickies up top are about board maintenance. So my question is Iím looking to start tuning my own board and I was just wondering what a good iron is to use? I saw the Swixsport Iron at Dickís seems similar to Dakine? I just want a solid Iron thatíll do a good job a few times each season nothing crazy.

I think people will say any clothes iron without holes is gonna work.

I got a cheap ski/snowboard iron from a board shop, probably wasted money compared to just grabbing a clothes iron from superstore but hell, whatever

Even with holes doesn't really matter. Mine has holes, been using it for two years.

Yeah with out holes doesnt seem to be to popular of a choice... can't find them... I guess the holes wont matter as long as you don't put water in it right? Also using a clothes iron what setting is good for wax? like cotton etc...

I don't know, mines a temp one. Just try it out and when it starts smoking find a cooler setting.

Yeah I think the Dakine would be way more user friendly for waxing purposes but I just found an Iron on Wal-Marts website for $6 worth a try

I have a swix

Don't buy a cheapy iron from walmart

The heating element is shit and has insane temp spikes which can burn your wax and board base

Buy a legit waxing iron and the heating element is much better and will keep a more consistent temp
