    works, saves time, and makes the process easier

      before i got this bad boy, i wasn't too fond of applying the F4 because the buffing process was a bit "strenuous." Using the cork not only enhances the effectiveness of the wax application, but makes it easier as well. i wasn't expecting much from it, but ended up really liking it.

      Great little tool

        If you wax, heat is required. If you don't want to spend a lot of money (for an iron), then a cork is what you need. This (fake) cork works well with a variety of kick waxes, so get the wax on, heat with the cork and go ski (assuming you've got your glide wax on too).

        Yup, it's a cork

          On cold mornings that turn into warmer days I'll use an all temp wax and cork it after I've scraped. It creates a pretty fast base that usually lasts all day. If you have the time to cork, do it.

          Old school & it works

            If you're into doing your own waxing, be it XC or alpine, you'll may consider "corking" your wax into your ski/board. "Corking" is an old school way of heating up the wax you've crayoned on your base. If you don't know what I mean by crayoning, then delete this and stay in town with your skateboard. If you don't have an iron, corking does work and it gives you a nice workout besides. In the old days, a real cork created from a cork tree was used to rub crayoned wax into ski bases. The simple friction of rubbing a natural cork along a base covered with wax melted the wax into the base. Certainly not as effective as a hot wax iron but effective nonetheless. These days, a foam cork has replaced the natural cork because it creates more friction (heat) than real cork. I don't know what's worse, saving cork trees (look it up) from extinction or using foam, a petroleum product we get from you know where. Either way, if you don't have an iron (woops, electricity involved), then this Swix synthetic cork works quite well.
