Do you turn the heat up on your iron when you go over the wax with Fiberlene? - Page 2

post #31 of 32

I use the SVST on a roll for final passes to remove bulk of excess wax, and I find it smooths and distribute the wax better, it has a zamboni and sponge effect,.

I do have to turn up the temp a bit.  

Then again, for the plain iron passes, I'm actually below the temp listed on the package for the wax, so the turned up temp is really the proper temp, and it's my spread passes that are a bit below temp.  Neither temperature is smoking the wax.

Well, theoretically speaking it has lasted 3 days - but the second two were softballs, with wet old snow at 41F yesterday and refrozen old snow 24F to 38F today.   Still beading up like crazy, very fast at speed.     The slickness at low speeds is gone.

It beat F4 for speed.    It beat Briko Medium for first-day slickness.   I also had a pair waxed with Toko HF blue - which was provably better than anything else I had, over all three days.
