I got my flat iron from value village
to everyone saying shit about heat distribution, that really doesnt matter at all, the holes in my iron collect wax and the wax "cooks" inside the iron then when you turn the iron back to flat the brown "cooked" wax pours out onto the skis.
thats why holes suck
using a clothing iron could potentially fuck your skis up. a clothing iron can have a temperature variation of up to 30 degrees celcius while a wax specific iron has a temp variation of no more than 3 degrees celcius.
burned bases suck
dont use an iron you already used to wax your skis on your clothes, other than that holes/no holes doesnt matter at all, and unless your a racer, you probably wont notice the difference between all temp wax/hightemp/low temp. ive waxed with candle wax before and it still works just fine, its all about getting moisture into your base
