Ptex on base... when to use???
 
Do you guys use Ptex on just your bigger gashes that definitely hit the base?

Or do you use it for any size-able bottom base-scratch even small... I have some minor cuts on the bottom that I may re-patch, or should I just use some bluebird wax over them?

I just wax over small scratches but I use ptex when the scratch is deep

I think if its too shallow it wont hold.

That's what I was kind of thinking... do you guys often use any particular cold waxes? I really like BlueBird's all temp, but don't know the cold temp wax to go with.. Using the Swix FX Iron, wonder what iron tempsetting needs to be adjusted as well chit. Appreciate the help fellas.

Some of these gashes are on the borderline for Ptex I think tho.

Only use ptex when its a core shot because all other times wax will work.

It's a lil tuff to tell with the white base.. I personally think I need one small slab of Ptex, but I really don't know chit.

Appreciate that quick shout back. Should I be using a harder/cold temp wax by the gashes closer to the edges? I have about 4 other decent scuffs, besides the 3 I showed. Know they're nothing crazy, but is there any utility to try to use a harder wax per se, or is there no difference really than just an all-temp wax for minor scratches and such?
