redlude97 1. Define "dry out"
2. Define "pores"
3. No
4. This answer depends on the conditions, wax type, structure etc.

Lamps 1. A base can "dry out".

{yes}

2. A base has "pores" that open and close.

{sort of, I think a base can absorb wax}

3. An Extruded base can hold more wax than a Sintered base.

{dunno}

4. With regards to speed, Wax is more important than Structure.

{no sure, is a waxed unstructured base better than an unwaxed structured base, probably yes but would you rather have perfect wax on a so-so base vs so so wax on perfect structure ( maybe yes))

The writer of the article below seems to really know a lot about this, best one i have seen on it

Oldman My goal is to engage the membership, hear everyone out, have the facts and data presented, arrive at a consensus and Sticky only what we arrive at. Not the entire thread. Sorry for the confusion.

By structure, I refer to what happens when you have a deck stoneground, or Hand Structure the surface of the board, Lengthwise, Crosshatch, etc., not what you do after waxing.

snowklinger 1. yes
2. yes
3. no
4. this question doesn't really make sense It helps to structure your wax after a fresh coat if you are going to be riding fresh pow, otherwise it really doesn't make a difference.

this is not sticky worthy imo

2. A base has "pores" that open and close.yes...generally due to the heat of the waxing iron

3. An Extruded base can hold more wax than a Sintered base. ugg... i don't remember...something like one or the other
4. With regards to speed, Wax is more important than Structure.[I]wax to match the temp and snow conditions....what do you mean structure...chemical structure of the ptex base that has virgin goat turd irradium graphite cobalt craponite or the fine brush structure of the wax...which is really anal[/I]
Snowolf, Donutz or Killclimbz could we sticker the outcome of this for future reference for all of us? Some myths seem to die hard.

Rookie09 I'm pretty sure numbers 3 and 4 are both big NOs. But I can't be sure on numbers 1 and 2.
