Sintered bases were introduced years ago & are pretty much the standard for most adult skis. Along the way fluorocarbon waxes have also become more widespread and most believe produce a better glide than hydrocarbon waxes.
My situation is that I've been tuning/waxing my own skis with fluorocarbon waxes, but have 4 small kids that have started skiing the past few years & I'm questioning if I should use LF wax on their skis or just stick w/ hydrocarbon. I feel guilty using a better wax on mine & being cheap with theirs. I also do NEED them to have good glide as their weight & skill tend to leave them walking on catwalks, to the lift line, etc.
With their skis having extruded bases, is it worth waxing them w/ a LF or will it just bleed off in a few runs?
Zenny? Jaques? Any insights or experience you can share?
