I say for basic usage, my $6 iron from WalMart works fine. Sure, it'll probably be broken by next season or something, but its working fine for me.
And I'm sort of against the kit because all you really need is the wax (you can buy from tognar for bulk wax) and something to scrape with - I picked up a plexiglass sheet and just cut it to what I needed and used that. Cost me ~$1 or so. That, and you should find a brush as well...
