Just a thumbs up for epic sponsor Doctor D who's racewax.com site has some great stuff, ships fast and offers a discount to Epic supporters.
Between Alpinord and Doctor D, I've almost forgotten about Tognar.
Agreed--I had been using cheaper bulk waxes prior to picking up the All Temperature Hi Fluoro wax and I could not believe how much quicker it was--so fast that I will not put it on my kid's skis because I think it would freak him out a little.
I had a home made rig in lieu of vices that would make Bob Vila proud. I broke down and bought vices from racewax.com, as well as a base edge guide as my skis are getting a stone grind. Good service, quick delivery, and a good price. I called and spoke with the proprietor (Dr. D) which was helpful.
When these knowledgeable sponsors spend their time giving out great free information, and pricing on most items is highly competitive, I feel like it is the right thing to support them. What goes around comes around...
About five years ago I stuffed five US $1.00's in an envelope and Dr. D sent me four few gram samples of Flouro powders ... or was that two fer five... ? anyway must try some more.
Waxing every time the temp changes or base burns or just cause I am bored has led to much more fun on the mtn's roads and flats... so it must be faster on a run.
I've learned a lot from both Alpinord and Dr D, and I'm extremely grateful for the service they provide on epic.
From being a tuning noob only a couple of years ago, to being able to service my family's skis, and have very good on-hill results, they have made this journey a lot easier.
And, in addition to being nice guys, and providing excellent service through their web sites, their prices are very competitive. What's not to like?
