I'm thinking about buying the hertel super hot sauce wax but I heard alot of people talking about edge burn. Is this wax more prone to edge burn than the others? I'll probably be riding more ice than anything since i'm on the east coast

Edge burn just happens over time no matter what wax is used. Sometimes it occurs sooner due to conditions. From the reviews i don't think it happens any sooner than other brands.

I haven't tried this wax yet but will definitely pick up some at the start of next season. From the sounds of it though i don't think i'll be disappointed.

Bought some Hertel Super Hot Sauce Wax and it says max 190F iron temperature (they recommend around 180F). I'm used to waxing closer to 240F. Anyone use this stuff can comment on the temperature they wax with. Will this wax smoke above 200F?

I know this is an old post, but I'm hoping you guys will be able you help me out. Does Hertel last very long on man made snow? I don't want to be riding man made snow, but thats all I got right now.

I use Hertel hotsauce and am very happy with it's performance and longevity on our man made snow. It is all we have in St. Louis, MO. Though I need to look in to structuring a board after reading a recent thread. Burton Avenger and Snowolf said waxing makes very little difference in most condition and structuring the base give the speed.

Man made snow rips wax out of your deck much faster than natural snow. If riding manmade all the time, I suggest something cheap/bulk(best I've found is a couple brands around $20-25/lb, shipping can make a big difference).

Waxing imho is about 50/50 performance/maintenance. The actual speed advantages are there but certainly also exist in our heads to some degree. Keeping your stick nice and saturated with wax will prevent any kind of "edge burn" and keep you in touch with the bottom of your board as you destroy it over time.

Corduroy, Ice, Old mush... whatever it is- i just glied over it. I was literally flying down the hill... i could go for hundreds of feet on the flats without slowing down... I was passing by everyone on the hill- while others were bombing I was checking my speed. I did multiple speed tests seeing if i would hit a limit... no go. The faster I went the better the wax seemed to work. From the second i put my board down on the snow... I knew this stuff was good.

Hands down worth its cost... hell, its worth over 30 dollars an ounce (one wax job) in my opinion. Screw all the other waxs... this thing is amazing.

no complaints... some edge burn but hey, I was flying and my edges werent that saturated.

Again.. dont even think twice- buy Hertel wax and no one else =D
