The Toko Base Brush Copper is a durable brush for structuring and cleaning dirty bases. Run it from tip to tail after you scrape your wax so that your bases work more efficiently. Structuring your base prevents your skis from getting a suction-cup effect which can drastically slow you down.

Best Brush hands down

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you do your own ski or board tuning you need this. Trust me.

First time with Toko

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a good quality brush. I have waxed the whole families skis twice since I got this, and it along with a Toko nylon brush give me a beautiful finish every time.

Nylon Brush

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Needed a brush for finishing up my skis after a wax. The nylon brush is great and removes a good amount of wax. Comfortable in my hand and works really well.

Must Have!

If you take the time to wax you MUST HAVE a brush. Like this one because you get 2 for 1 with the nylon and copper both on one brush. I use this to clean before I apply the wax and then again at the end.

Completes the wax

This is a good brush. The nylon really completes a fresh new wax job. It's not so big that you have to use to hands, but it is just big enough that you can if you really want to dig in to it. Dimensions measure 6x3x1 in.

I think i need a metal brush for cleaning...

Posted on

I think i need a metal brush for cleaning dirt and wax before a fresh wax and for buffing after wax. Should I go straight to the copper brush or is there some advantage to the nylon/copper brush? Can someone explain the uses and benefits of all three (nylon, nylon/copper, copper)? I want a good go to brush with out having to buy 2 or 3 different ones.

You don't need 3 brushes, it is possible to make it work on one. 3 brushes are going to be faster, copper lightly before you wax to open your structure, remove old wax, and make the base more receptive to wax. Then wax, then scrape. When you scrape use a few passes with the copper, then nylon, and a final polish with horse hair. If you were to limit me to one brush, I would take nylon.

If I was to be limited to 1 brush it would be a bronze nylon hybrid. I have one and it's mainly bronze but has a nylon trim around the outside. Unless you're racing, you only need 1 brush, either stiff nylon or bronze nylon hybrid.

Austin, I strongly suggest you stretch and get copper AND nylon brush....Copper is essential for base prep to open structure prior to waxing. Using nylon works but not effectively to open completely before new wax application. The after scraping, a few copper stokes then nylon will be good to polish base. (just my opinion....) Good luck!

Buy if you race

Toko brushes are the way to go. Brushing your skis provides a whole new world of speed and enjoyment to all levels of skiing. If you are a racer, be sure to get a metal brush, either copper or steel, for initial wax removal and structure detailing.

Essential

Make sure you know what your doing before you tune nordic bases with this brush. The copper is the first brush you'd use after scraping, and you take off quite a bit of wax with it followed by nylon, and horsehair. Always run tip to tail with brushes, and never use any back and forth motion, as the pattern in your base can get damaged. Gets dirty fast, but you can beat it against the counter and it'll come clean. Essential for any wax buff. Another thought: two hands fit perfectly onto it, one right on top/behind another for really gettin into your brushing.

To clean a brush what I do is run/scrape my metal scraper along it to get all the bits of wax out. Causes a dandruff cloud of wax so watch where you do it!

Big difference

My first year snowboarding, a buddy taught me to wax my own board--but he never used a brush, so I figured i didn't need one. Now, two years later, i decided to see if it would make a difference--and wow! I feel like a freaking moron for not using one all along.

This brush is quite large, which makes it great for waxing my wide 153cm board. The bristles are a lot stiffer than the nylon ones i'd seen for sale at my local shop, which makes me more comfortable when I didn't scrape as well in an area.

It is a brush

It is a brush and it works like a brush.

What are the dimensions of this brush?

What are the dimensions of this brush?

Responded on

I don't know why that matters, but it's like 6-8 inches long and like 3-4 inches wide.

Copper and Nylon brushes are same size.....5.5 x 2.6 inch with a 5/8 inch brush handle. After edge sharpening, I suggest wearing some work gloves for safety as you brush with medium pressure. A small slip could drive your knuckles into pain! I got a cheap pair at Sears (Dewalt brand) with nice rubberized palms and breathable cloth on top.
