I just discovered Kuu Mach Wax. Best I've ever had. My 2 buddies used cheap wax for the same temps that day and I was a lot faster. Of course we were on different boards which makes this comparison a bit sketchy but at least we were all on sintered bases :P

Of all the over-analyzed elements of this sport, wax and waxing has to be at the top of the list.

Any decent wax of the appropriate temperature range is fine unless you're racing or something. You probably won't be able to tell a huge difference. Melt it on, spread it around, scrape it off, and go fucking ride.

It's really that simple. If you're corking and polishing and buffing with your nutsack or whatever, you're just wasting your time IMO. That shit might make an impact for a run or two at most. Just fucking ride.

Definitely going to have give these waxes a try. Thanks All. Also you guys ever use these Nylon Ski Snowboard Brush - Blue or something along those lines. If so does it really make a difference? Been waxing for years and never had the opportunity to.

For me proper wax is everything. A good wax job will improve board handling and reduce fatigue.

IMO Swix makes the best wax- great recipes with no added crap to make it smell better. That being said I've used One Ball 4WD wax in the backshop for years and love it. When properly blended my wax jobs are faster than everybody else on the hill almost every time.

I don't use "all-temp" wax, ever.

I don't see anything wrong with it, the way I see it wax is wax unless you're racing. I know what I'll be grabbing from the cabinet if I ever run out of wax now...
