Picking the right wax for "Dummies" (me) - Page 2

Very good info ^ Lostboy!

Don't race on Hertel Hot Sauce, or any other "Mom and Pop" wax, use TOKO, SWIX, DOMINATOR, HOLMENKOL, or whatever from a company that supplies a National Team Pool. I used Hertel 7 hundred and something "race wax" for downhill training and Kuu Mach III for the race a couple of hours later and the Kuu was 2 seconds faster and I'm pretty sure that I skied cleaner in training than in the race. Spend a few bucks more and get the real deal. If you loose a position by 0.1 sec and you were on cheap wax then you just gave it away.

When he is losing by that little it'll be time for pricey wax. Until then, this is Nastar, not the World Cup. It's his line.

Edit: Or maybe his start out of the gate. Anyway, not the wax.

For NASTAR races, against a pace setter I agree 100%, but in a race against other people if the difference between 7th and 8th was 0.1 sec I would say get the good stuff and gain the place. Even if you are 3 seconds off the podium.

I don't use the "H" word either.
