im about to buy a one ball jay snowboard wax kit

any good? im not familiar with snowboard maintenance companies.

also, is it worth is to get a snowboard wax iron? will a normal clothes iron do just as good a job?

i was thinking about getting the kit because i like how everythings all together so i dont have to get it all seperately...

i personally like OBJ products so it should be a good choice but i'm not familiar with thier kit.

and yes, a regular clothes iron will do the job if thats all you have.

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...

see thats why i like the kit. i dont have to look for an iron, brush, wax, or scraper. plus im scared to just use a plexiglass sheet; id rather use something that snowboard companies make so that i dont scratch my board

Well, with the plexiglass it is very, very hard to scratch the base - I've yet to scratch it and I've used a metal one too.

They're essentially the same thing, except you're paying more for it to come in a kit

i got a little travel iron from goodwill for like $4 and it works as good as any will. check out a thrift store or something. i also bought a brush for like $3 and a couple of those plastic putty spreader things to scrape with for like $.50 at home depot. you can use pretty much anything plastic to scrape and it won't scratch it, just scrape tip to tail direction only. personally, i think buyin name brand anything for waxing (other than wax) is a ripoff.

A regular flat iron with tin foil layered on the surface works

You don't need a fancy wax iron.
