Hertel Board Wax...
 
Hey all... thought id do a bit of review on this so called amazing wax...

i bought 24 ozs of this stuff and it came in today... waxed it on, all went well... went on smooth, odorless, but it took about a whole ounce to do my board (given i had some crazy edge burn that needed to be saturated)

ill continue this after i scrape, and then ride this saturday.

cheers all.

Its good stuff, and it seems to really hold up well. I typically do a small maintenence type wax before every trip, the stuff is so cheap why not? I have the big block though but i dont use that much per wax, then again i do only have a 151.

Its great stuff, definately as good or better than the OBJ F1 i bought with the kit..and waaaay cheaper. I mean it ends up costing you like 1.25 per wax assuming you use a whole 1oz every time...way better than the 12 or whatever all the sports stores here charge.

I just got back from riding...

Where to start... This stuff is hands down the best thing you can buy for your board. I know im totally going to sound like the ads on their site, but this stuff is simply amazing.

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

I agree rocan... great stuff i love it... i fly with this wax.

with the edge burns... i noticed the same thing also.. doesnt hold to well on east coast ice (only the edges dry up a bit)

besides that its well worth it

tognar sells 2.5kg (~5.5lbs) of toko universal wax for $50
(10x ~.55lb bricks) ($9.09/lb)

compare the hertel .75lb brick at $20 ($26.67/lb)

I bought the 24 oz pack... they gave me 30 ozs of wax for some reason.. i dont mind...


legally- its completely worth the price... w00ps toko back to the factory.

I'm currently thinking of ways to deal with the edge burn here on the ice coast... im going to try rubbing on a nice thick layer along my edges, a thinner layer in the center, then melt it all on, drip on some more, melt that on and warm up the base, let it get saturated, let it cool and harden, and then remelt the wax in an attempt to saturate it more.

on the hertel package they say that you can make the all purpose work better for cold conditions by changing the way you apply it, but it doesnt exactly tell you HOW.

if you buy the 160 ounce pack, it comes to only $15.05 a pound... well worth the extra 6 dollars over toko...



also your calculations are off- its only $25.33 a pound if you buy the .75 pound bar :cheeky4::cheeky4:
