For the Mid-Atlantic, especially early season, I find it works best if you cut it with a harder wax: Swix blue 1:2 Hertel or Swix violet 1:1 Hertel work well, Maplus Race Base Medium 1:3 Hertel works well.
For glide, the resulting mix is comparable to Toko Dibloc LF
Later in the season (Valentines' Day through March) straight-up Hertel Super Hot Sauce works nicely; Spring Solution is really optional, Zardoz is really optional.
It is really easy stuff to iron, as it wets out the base very well.
It is IMO one of the worst waxes to try to cork into a base during travel: it doesn't crayon but forms soapy smears and then lumps up under the cork. Ugh.
