Save yourself some beer money.
Your buddy at the ski shop appreciates the beer, but let's face it, his taste for fine ales is making the cost a little steep. Enjoy those brews yourself when you treat your skis to a nice hot wax with the Swix Economy Waxing Iron. The easy-to-read temperature dial adjusts from 100 to 150 degrees Celsius to accommodate the varying temperatures of cold and warm waxes, and a temperature indicator light keeps you from burning a flat spot in your bases. Plug this bad-boy into the wall, set it down on the cleverly designed flat spot below the handle, and crank some classic rock until it's time to tune.

Wax Your Skis and Go Fast
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I gave this to my pops to upgrade his old clothes iron that he's been stuck using for waxing purposes, and he's stoked! The temperature control is super easy to use- heats up quickly and keeps temperature without any issue. The plate is excellent- SO nice to not have the silly little holes on the clothing iron that holds wax. All in all it's been holding up great so far. Honestly in all of my years waxing, I don't see the reason to get the super expensive iron for recreational purposes when this one works so well!
Better than ruining your clothes iron
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
You can spend a pretty penny on a waxing iron, but at the end of the day its just going to melt some wax... This iron is very easy to use, heats up quickly, and holds the heat steady enough for a good wax. The dial can be a little hard to read since the indicator arrow is directly under the handle, but it's easy to tell based on quickly the wax melts (and make smokes a bit) if you need to turn it up or down. I've used this iron for a couple of seasons and it's holding up ok. There are a couple of minor scratches on the wax plate but nothing major enough to screw up your skis. I haven't been super gentle with how I store the iron - it just lives in a plastic tote box with all of my way and other tools, so I'm not surprised that it's got some scratches on it
