Default Plez recommend a good temp to melt wax

I've been watching alot of "How to wax your board" vdo off Youtube and recently decided to try it out instead of paying someone $20 for each job.
I bought a dakine waxing iron, some oneballjay (cold)x-wax and was wondering what is a good temp should I set the iron at to melt the wax instead of burning?
Thank you for any help..

Different waxes smoke, or burn, at different temps. It's mostly trial and error. If your wax is smoking turn it down, if it's not spreading nice enough turn it up. For me I usually have it set somewhere between Cotton and Polyester!

Hey thanks man.. I got the number temp control on it and that's why I asked. Im sure I can play around with it, but I thought someone may know wat's a good starting temp to start the melting process.

yeah just play around with it. Try to get it so its melting at a decent rate but just back off if it starts smoking.

There are videos in the tips and tricks section here as well. That is where I watched them anyway.
