It took me a few years to finally buy a top-end iron, and as the old adage goes, you only cry once when you buy the best.
This iron holds the temperature beautifully, and has the power to recover so quickly when melting wax and heating the ski that it seems like it never cools.
Buy one (or the Swix), and don't regret it.

I enjoy hot waxing Its one of my favorite things to do the night before a day of hard riding I'll wax everyone's sticks making sure that no one gets left behind at flat spots or sunny sticky areas I use to do all my waxing with a simple cheap iron which worked but temps were all over the place and it didn't spread the wax out at all I felt like I was pushing the wax around trying to get it to melt in and always switching the temps up and down This Iron is awesome it heats up fast and it has a digital read out of the temp you are at for easy adjusting but the best thing I noticed was how great it spreads the wax with your passes It really lays it out nice it makes scraping easier and faster It also comes with a carrying bag I love having cases for my tools And it looks sweet

Although the price went up from last yearit's still a good work horse for the shop. I bought 1 last year and with all the abuse we gave it and duct tape it stii preforms. The new iron this year came eith a thicker plate, just making the iron that much better.
