ya i have the iron maiden one too, and for everyone that says we got ripped off at 50 bucks, remember we're in canada lol, we get ripped off for everything, i looked long and hard to find that iron for under 50 and couldn't find one. Iron works great though couldn't be happier. You'll find that same iron rebranded to like 50 different companies lol they're all the same iron though.
I got an iron (regular one for clothing) for $7.15 after tax at Target. Hard to beat that deal. They had irons that went up to $79.... I don't know WHY you'd ever need an $80 iron... but presumably its more than 10x better than the one I got, lol
I picked up a one ball jay from ebay for about $20. Looking back I should have gotten the dakine tune kit but it is all good.
Nah. The only thing you really NEED out of the dakine kit is the edge tool. You can get everything else cheaper.
Scrapers? $5 at the shop, or they come free with wax
Wax? $8-$15 at the shop (usually ~2 oz), or $30 for a 1 lb block from online
Iron? $7 at Target
Grinding stone? $6 at Home depot
Scotchbrite brillo pad? $2 at the supermarket (or steal one from ur moms!)
That is ~$40 for a DIY kit with an iron. The Dakine kit with an iron costs twice that
