- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Lets be honest, this is not the nicest wax you can buy and the price reflects that. BUT, this is the only wax I use on my skis for two reasons. One, I wax my skis a lot and therefore I go through a lot of wax and you just can not beat this price. Second, it works. Plain and simple, it keeps me going fast. Just make sure to get the cold and warm temp versions!
It may not last as long as high end race wax, but for the price, you honestly can not beat it.
A Pain To Scrape
Seems to be a pretty common complaint for Backcountry's house wax. It goes on just fine with the iron but scraping is terrible. Expect to have some sore wrists by the end of your wax job. The wax works great; especially if you're in the East Coast like me. It certainly stays for a long time after being applied to your board or skis. If you grab it on sale I would say totally worth if you have an extruded base, but if you have sintered and need to wax a lot go elsewhere. Not to say it won't work, but you don't wanna go through the scraping process often with this stuff... Cheap, durable, and gets the job done!
