Overall this iron will get the job done and server as a nice replacement for whatever non wax approved iron you are using. It heats incredibly quickly to the temperature that you need to melt your wax. I generally stick just under 100F. I'd estimate it takes 10 seconds to get there. Backing it down to a lower temperature is just as fast surprisingly.

I'd say the only thing that I don't care for on this iron is that it scratches very easily. I already have scratches on it after a few uses from the base edge of the board. I would still highly recommend it as it pulls the wax evenly across your board.

This vices are a must have for your tuning needs. I have not used anything else but I can't imagine tuning without these. The suction cups hold your board in place as you are waxing and cleaning while the seated position holds your board firmly in place when you are taking care of your edges.

The one down side that I see about these is that it is mostly heavy plastic but as long as you take care of them they will take care of you and likely last the rest of your snowboarding life.

Overall this is a decent kit and covers most of the needs you need for tuning. I love the torque driver as it has all the bits that I need for my board and bindings. The scuff pad you will use and throw away after a few applications but that is to be expected.

I was a little disappointed at the scraped. I was hoping it had an edge scraper on one of the points but it did not. Nothing that a little modification can take care of though.

The edging tool is great. Its basic and easy to use all while getting those sharp edge (either 90 degrees or 88 degrees) that you need.
