Risk what? You aren't risking anything but a day of less performance compared to a hand waxed board. We aren't even bringing snow conditions into the equation. You also keep ignoring the fact that MOST of us riders here won't really know the difference. Head game.
You obviously have much more experience than a lot of us here. It's pretty easy to understand that YOU can tell the big difference.
You actually do waste something by waxing a factory new board. Not a complete waste, but still a waste... your wax and time. Well a complete waste if you can't tell the difference anyway.
You also talked about how you sharpen your edges after every session. That's definitely not a good idea for some riders.
Again, way too much thought into this. I debate it because I see 100's of threads of new riders, many of whom don't even have more than a couple of days on snow, asking about waxing a factory new board. Then they spend their time learning how to wax and shopping for the "best wax" all before getting out on snow.
Same with the whole detuning thing. So much emphasis on detuning factory new boards when detuning is not for everyone much like sharpening isn't either.
Experienced riders: You know hand wax is always better, your call
New riders: I doubt you'll notice the difference between a crappy factory machine wax or a hand wax, but yes, hand wax is definitely better. Again, your call
You gave your opinion and I gave mine. Neither of us are factually right
