I wax and I notice it. When it needs another wax I can feel it, and as people have said the first place you will notice it is on a flat runout, if you were on 30+ degree slopes all day you would rarely need wax as gravity is helping you get down fast.
I can even be riding and think to myself that heel side is getting a bit sticky, look at the base and sure enough the heel side looks white, go wax the board and its problem solved.
To listen to some in this thread what I am experiencing is some kind of delusional mind trick engineered by the wax makers. Im not that dumb, I wax when I can tell it needs it and for me that happens to be around very 5 days or so.

|herzogone||they actually make that claim. They state that it is perfluoropolyalkylether (PFPAE), which does not appear to be one of the specific dangerous PFCs called out in the Scientific American article. Actually, the stuff sounds interesting, I wasn't aware of it, thanks for sharing. I'll have to do more reading.|

Thanks..I did that too...but it's not that wax is expensive...it's just that is basically useless...again unless it's a slushy day...or you're racing.
that said there's no way I'm going to give up waxing...as I said I enjoy it...as I enjoy doing my edges, setting up whatever I'm riding..and so on.

I had the feeling for a while that waxing was just a piece of info-marketing that worked really well, and noticed a difference in speed only on flats, on a slushy day.
That said, I love to wax my boards the night before a powder day...it's just a ritual of love.
Zardoz no- wax works really well too on slush...but I'm worried that it could bee too toxic. Any info on that?
