Swix universal wax and F4 universal what is the difference

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I was looking at the Swix Universal Cold Glide Wax and Swix Universal Glide Wax and then saw the F4 Universal what is the main difference between the two. I'm looking at getting the 900g box that way it will save me money and I'm just a recreation skier and don"t need to shave off milliseconds of my time just want a no brainer wax kind of thing so I can spend more time skiing. At the moment I got the toko NF in 3 temp range since that was the cheapest I could get my hand on at the moment.

Picked up both, the Universal Glide in bar form and F4 in more a tube.

 

In my case it was the F4 bought can be rubbed on while the other needed to be melted/ironed onto boards/skis.  I hadn't noted the F4 can be bought in bar form too.

 

Temp range for either were fine for me. I'd suspect the rub on F4 wears down quicker but I don't know that, as with you, I only recreational ski (well, not yet this year) and don't worry about specific temp ranges.  The F4 I picked up was ~-10 to +10C which I think too was the Universal Glide ...

In my case I'm looking at the F4 900g hot wax bar. Thanks for the temp range that's one of the things I was wondering how it compared in temp to the other one.
