Interesting concept, waxing nowaxers...... sounds like a great idea. My
method for ironing out last years scratches has been to sand them of with a
very fine grit paper. Sounds counter productive, but works quite well, those
little shaggy hairs do slow you down, so sand em off. A note about Notwax, I
would not recomend anyone using that crap! I used it on a set of Tua Montets
( tele boards ) as directed on the bottle, by midway through the day the
skis were behaving eratically, and skiing very slow. It also seemed to
foster a crud layer sticking to the bases. Stick to the tried and true.....
real wax, or Maxiglide for waxless.
