Here's what others have to say...

What is the ideal temperature for waxing...

What is the ideal temperature for waxing skis? Should it be cotton? Polyester?;-)Seriously, what are an appropriate temperature (or temp range)?

Best Answer

Different types of waxes will iron in best at different temperatures. Generally colder waxes require more heat. A good iron/wax will include a chart of temperature ranges. Of course, a Swix iron will only tell you what temps to use with Swix if you're using another brand of wax you'll need to get the specs on it. Basically, it make sure whatever wax you get includes some guidelines

if the wax smokes, its too hot. if it doesn't melt, its too cold.

To wax your skis.---------------------You don't. You can get a good quality, reliable iron for less than half as much. This is for pros who are racing for $$$ and have to have everything "perfect."
