I've used whacks wax before with solid results. Right now I'm using toko wax...universal stuff from tognar.com.

2.5kg for about 32 bucks...comes in 5 sticks. sell some sticks and well you've got a lot of wax for cheap.

Anything soy based will last longer you don't have to use as much and it coats better. I've been using Purl lately.

Hot Sauce is pretty good actually. Forgot to mention the other great thing about soy wax is you can breath the fumes and its not going to destroy your lungs. Friendly service reminder to everyone to wax in a well ventilated area you don't want to wreck your lungs.

Another great thing about soy wax is its edible. So bite a chunk off and follow it down with some organic base cleaner.

leme see...hmm One ball jay, burton amongst others. all the big guys have some form of bio wax on the market right now. I purchase this stuff online and I have found it to work well as an allaround all temp. I still use flurocarbon overlays for the humid cascade concrete conditions we get out here in oregon.

Check you local shop for soy (bio wax) of just buy it online. It should not be to hard to find as it has become quite popular... also forgot to mention Whacks wax (clever name) great whacks eer wax..
