We use it lots on tips and tails.....Makes the bones go up much better.... TM
I use Swix Easyglide when I'm too lazy to hot wax... (Most of the time)
Just because it's the easiest one to get here... They make a spray version but a bit too expensive for me...
But I usually hot wax them with (whatever brand I can find locally) yellow wax a few times a year...
I've switched over to this - non-fluoronated version as shown. Best stuff I've used so far.
It seems to last longer than maxi-glide from what I've observed so far.

I cork swix polar hard wax on all my skis. I even put a little on the scales of my vector bcs. Real light then I rubbed it in with my hand. I don't know if it helped but it didn't hurt.
I put swix F4 on them last year and I must not have done it right because it slowed them way down and I couldn't keep up with my wife who was on the same ski.

I prefer Maxiglide Quick Wax or Maxx Wax when I can get it. These are paste waxes.

Swix F4 has worked well for me. I buff it in really well with the felt pad though. I have these tiny, red two finger nylon brushes that we use to clean it out of the fishscales. I get them at the local supermarket, but have seen them at ski shops for twice the price.
