super-rad Just comparing the two boards I am currently riding, my Burton Process FV is faster than my Bataleon Jam.

poutanen There are some long term members of this forum that NEVER wax their boards.

Number one factor in how fast a board will go? Rider.

Number two factor might be base structure before wax.

Number three factor would likely be clothing (aerodynamic or not) for a top speed test, or wax for a cat track test.

All in theory of course.

CK93 yes, the new wax definitely helped, but I also think getting more used to my board helped as well.

I imagine all the man made stuff stripped off the wax pretty well.

Heading out to SLC to hit some Utah snow now.

CK93 LOL...Wow, did not expect all this when I asked the original question. Mainly what I was looking for was a board with faster material type base. I was told that different companies has faster bases than other, so I posted here to get your opinions. Got them I did! LOL

Anyway, what was happening to me was, I was cruzin down the hill then hit a flat spot, I would have to un strap and push myself. I would try the run again and get as fast as I could to see if I could gain enough speed to make it through the flat patch and I wasn't able.

Or on the beginning of the runs where its a little flat, I would have to hop until the slope got steeper. I would see other boarders able to strap in and start to go down just fine.

I wasn't looking for high tech arguments, just wanted to get insight on boards that had a little faster base to help guide my next purchase.

I just got my Hot Knife back with a sweet wax job on it. I think the issue I had was my wax was gone from riding on pure man made snow. But I will see if this theory is right next time I go up.

Don't get wrong, I learned some good stuff from this thread. Plus it was fun see the rivalry going on

Cheers!

My NS Raptor 159 and T.Rice 161.5 were bloody fast, both of which would be faster than other boards I've owned such as a Bataleon Goliath 157 and Lib Skate Banana 159, regardless of what brand/temp/formulation of wax you put on each.
