Ive been meaning to try this one out as well. Ive dabbled with a few different brands, and have a bar of Purl racing wax waiting to be used for the next wax, but I must say, I recently tried the OneBallJay 4WD "cold" wax and its the fastest wax Ive used so far. I absolutely love this stuff, and it lasts forever on the ice coast.

I generally like the all-temp wax because although I ride predominantly here on the ice coast, I do take trips out west and to deal with the hassle of stripping and re-waxing to all-temp kinda sucks

I finally rode on the Super Hot Sauce wax. It held up way better than the One Ball Jay 4x4 even in shitty snow conditions (hasn't snowed in a week, so it's pretty hard packed and icy). With the OBJ wax, I had to re-wax my board every time I rode. With the Hertel stuff, I've only got a tiny bit of edge burn.

I don't know if it's cause it was 30 degrees today, but my board glidded so well it was insane. I could glide further than anyone else on the hill. Get off lift, glide UP THE HILL when everyone else was skating to the strap in point. The combo of the TBT sintered base and the Hertel wax made the Riot a freaking rocket ship. I've never speed checked more in my life than I did today.

Only thing I didn't like was it seemed like I had to use more wax than normal to get full coverage. But the stuff is so cheap that it doesn't really matter.

I have the same issue..ive literally thrown my board on the snow at a flat area near a lift line at the start of a day to strap in and had it start slide away where i had to reach down and grab the binding before it got away...i was like wow i may just die this shits so slippery...

While the initial wax takes quite a bit, i found that i actually use less wax on subsequent waxes because the mid section holds up so well i really only have to wax the edges and then put a few drops down the center and spread them out on my SL-R

For those that havent seen it yet what makes their wax so special.

I'd love to try the White gold some day when i get more advanced, but that shits just soooo expensive i dont think ever will.

first time i waxed with it i used a whole bar...

today i rubbed my edges like crazy to try and get them super saturated and reduce edge burn... which youll find you have a lot with this wax becuase youll be moving so fast youll WANT to be on your edge.

i used about a half ounce of wax or so.

heh... i thought the same thing when i first stepped in with this wax... slippery as hell

the white gold is supposed to be frickin insane... twice as fast as the hot sauce... if not better. Only olympians use a whole bar on their boards...

most people just mix a tiny bit in with the normal hot sauce.

I finally gave in and bought some of this stuff... wow is it nice. I feel as if I can defy the laws of physics with this wax on my board!
