brushes for waxing

is it okay to use brushes with bristles that aren't perfectly straight

like this product Welcome To Quickie.com

i have one of those new lying around but the bristles are kind of wavy, it won't like mess up the structure of my base would it?

oh and how thin should the bristles be?

all i use is a brass brush before wax and for after i use a green scotch brte scrubbie, nylon brush. i might pick up a horse hair brush, but i dont think it will make that much if a difference for me

Related question: I got a Rome board this year, and well, after waxing my old board, and waxing my girl's board...well, I just don't wanna wax the new one too.

Are Rome's factory wax jobs legit, or do I really need to wax it? I know I should anyway buuuuut...I'm lazy.

yeah thought so, but would you need to remove the original wax by brushing it or something?
thanks for the help

I bought a new Rome Flag at the end of last season.. Even though the Rome boards come factory waxed with Bluebird, I would recommend hot waxing it before your first time out. because you have not riden it before, there really isn't much need for a thorough cleaning before waxing it, but I would brush it with a brass brush first anyway.

Also, don't forget to detune the nose and tail.
