Summer storage bp-88 or ch-10 for newer skis?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Due to a nasty injury last weekend my season is now over. Broken fibular behind the knee and a medial meniscus that looks like it went through a wood chipper. My skis are relatively new only about 4 days on them. I'm going to tune, hot scrape and store for the summer is the bp-88 better for these newer skis or should I just lay on the ch-10?

Then go with the CH10 and use your glacier wax for the Hood trip?

 

 

 

Srsly, how much CH10 does anyone really use for wax of the day, per season?   And, if not on Hood, where are they based that they need CH10 so much? 

 

FWIW, there was a blurb in one of the waxing manuals somewhere about Base Prep-type formulations  having blended into them a hard wax portion that would separate out and stay on the surface of the ski and cool faster creating a "skin" that would freeze all the base hairs as they floated up in the still molten softer wax beneath.   Thereby making them easier to hot-scrape off.

 

Yeah I know, it does sound like an OWT someone came up with after watching a shaving razor commercial.

For storage wax I use parafin (canning wax) purchased at the grocery store. It's really cheap compared ski wax and you can lay it on thick.

Every pair of my skis has storage wax on them all year, except the day I am skiing. I use Swix F4 universal so 99% of the time all they need is a scrape and brush. For special event/conditions I will use a wax more suited for the day's conditions over top.
