I should go wax my skis. Your wax threads are always a good reminder to do so.
Haha. I just waxed my skis today. You gonna get out on the slopes again this season? If you have a good warm or medium temp wax it will make slushy conditions glide really fast.
powpatrolhe’s back and ready to take down the FIS
Ive been terrorizing youtube video comment sections during my ns ban. Its funny how swix and toko and other wax companies are posting videos that claim the new non fluoro waxes are faster than the old fluoro-containing waxes.... as if we are that
fucking stupid... its hilarious.
If non fluoro waxes were faster then pro ski racing teams would have ditched fluoro a long time ago.
So i dont understand how these companies think they can convince customers to spend 100$ today for a non fluoro wax that isnt even as fast as a fluoro wax that you could have bought the same amount of a few yrs ago for 10$.
one of these videos i watched recently showed a swix factory where they were making non fluoro ski waxes. The facial expression of pretty much everybody in that video was depressed looking as fuck. They literally looked like they were ready to kill themselves. I wouldnt blame them. I wouldnt be surprised if swix and toko went out of business. Regular non fluoro wax does make your skis faster than not waxing, but not like fluoro waxes do. Fluoros are much
I dont know what the future is going to look like, but if i didnt already have plenty of fluoro wax stashed for myself, i would probably buy some fluoro wax from whatever companies around the world still produced it. And if the whole world banned it, i would buy it on a silk road type marketplace. Hopefully the general quality of a chinese product would be good enough i assume it wouldnt be that hard though. The copy engineering capability of a bespoke chinaman is simply scary.
