I have a pair of Fischer E-99 Double crown N0-Wax skis and want to try waxing
the tips and tails this year. I have used Swix F4 wax (paste) and maxiglide XC
the past two years and would like to see if regular Swix ski wax would provide
a little more speed. I used some Swix red (30-36F) wax. I cleaned the bases
of the ski's and then used an iron to apply the wax. After applying the wax, I
waited and then used a scraper to remove the excess wax. The wax in the tube
prior to applying has a sticky feel to it and after applying it the sticky feel
is still there. How much of the wax do I remove? Is the sticky base normal
with this type of wax or should I buff it down further?
Any information I can father on waxing would be appreciated since I have never
waxed ski's before.
