Default Banshee Bungee Stomp stick

Hello all,
I bought one of these as I don't want to wreck the look of my board but would like something grippy to hold my boot when getting off the chairlift and such. My question is has anyone here used it yet? How does it hold up? Any other thoughts on it?

Thank you and sorry if there were other topics as I did a search but came up empty.

I actually came here trying to help but i have no idea what the stomp stick is and now im curious.. is it just a stomp pad? When you say you dont want to wreck the board it made me think you put it on your boot or something. I tried to look on google but couldnt find anything

Oh its wax. Should work, surfers use wax so i cant see it not working really. Ive never used it though or even a stomp pad for that matter so i really cant say for certain. I was just curious.

Although, now that i think of it youll probably get a wax residue that will be just as noticable especially if you have a gloss topsheet

It should be removable with base cleaner or a mild solvent. I've washed topsheets with mineral spirits before no problem...

That said, I'm in the no stomp pad camp. After a while you just don't need 'em.

Traction wax is great for surfboards or skimboards but its because its used with bare feet in most cases... I dont think it would be a good idea for snowboarding because its just going to gum up the treads of your boots and then your mom's, wife or girlfriend is just gonna yell at ya when ya track that shit in the house and get it in the carpet...

Agreed, when you surf in booties, they get wax all over them. But in snowy temperatures, its hard to imagine wax maintaining a high level of stick for your boot. Anything on the bottom of your boot, will probably stick to the wax. Surfboard wax gets pretty nasty looking real quick. I personally wouldn't rub that stuff all over my snowboards.

Hmm never really thought of that. Thanks for the advice guys.

I think I may try it out and see, as I already have it. The worst that happens is I don't like it and end up turfing it after a couple rides.

The salesperson at the shop I got it from says he uses it and it works great. But it's hard to tell sometimes if they are being truthful or just want to sell you swag. Though this guy did seem genuine when I talked with him. He was also of the no stomp pad club.

So I thought it might be a nice alternative for those who want more grip but not the look of a pad.

Thanks again guys.

Well an update of sorts.

I'll be totally honest here, I haven't tried this stick yet because I haven't needed it yet.

In the 3 or 4 times I've been out I've rode with no stick or stomp pad and felt fine. I may have to try it just to see if I notice a difference or not.
