Interesting... I'll have to check that out too. Um, anyone know the link to the actual product page for Bluebird? Their website is super messy.
The funny thing is, do I really want to go as fast as the expensive waxes will let me go, considering how short the runs are down here, hehe. Another train of though could be... since the snow sucks here I should get the most ideal waxes to get the most out of it. Whatevers, tje cheaper the better for me.

Thanks for being so detailed, Sno! Very interesting. I just bought a 100g block of Burton's hydrocarbon all temp wax, which I think was a good deal ($5, free s/h) off Sierra. Hopefully it should get me thru next season.
I'm in SOUTHERN southern CA hehe. Big Bear and Mountain High. I can get thru an average winter snow day without long johns under my pants down here.

How much faster are fluorinated waxes?
Couple wax questions. How much faster do fluoro waxes go? Are they worth the additional cost?
Oh! And wax temps. Here in Southern CA I think I'll end up using "warm" waxes all season long. Are the temperature ratings on the waxes referring to the general local temp or the temperature of the actual snow? Yeah I know this question probably has an obvious answer.
