I have a dedicated ski iron that I got about 3 years ago--it's the Swix T74 which I think is/was the cheapest model. Anyway, I think I need to replace it, as it seems to smoking/steaming all of a sudden. (the wax isn't smoking but the iron seem to be giving off some sort of smoke . . . .even when I'm not holding wax against it---and I never noticed it doing this before---and it's on the low setting).
Has anyone had any better luck (lasting longer) with one of the more expensive or digital models? Any brands/models in particular you'd recommend? My iron gets moderate use as I have 3 sets of skis, so I don't mind shelling out more money if it's really worth it for one that moderates temperature better, but just curious what other people's experiences have been. thanks
