Description

Mr. Miyagi would be proud.

The DAKINE Adjustable Tuning Iron gives you maximum wax coverage and absorption in a way that no thrift-shop iron can. A precise temperature adjustment ensures you melt instead of burn the wax, and DAKINE beveled the edges to provide smooth movement across the base.

Great iron

This iron works very efficiently and makes waxing the stick easy. I definitely recommend this unit to anyone that wants a pro wax job...unlike the job you get at the shops. Do it yourself for a much better finish.

Good Iron

For the price, its hard to be beat. Great little iron for the DIY'er at home. Done about 15 boards so far this season and it has yet to let me down.

This Iron FTW

This thing is awesome. Coming from a 50 year old iron I took from my grandma, this thing heats up instantly and the round edges make spreading an even base super easy. I'm still figuring out what temp to keep it at for best results since "Max" smokes the wax when I'm dripping it onto the board besides that best iron ever.

Upgrade

I bought a fixed temperature Dakine tuning iron nearly a decade ago, used, from a local retailer. It still works, but I found that it was smoking quite a few different brands of wax. Bought this, it heats up fast, comfy on the hand, and the heating surface is MUCH bigger than my last iron. Now I just have to find an 850w inverter so I can wax in my Jeep....

Kinda like ironing clothes. but not really.

Its super hot. Well, heats up fast is what i mean. with my friend's i used once, it took like 5 minute to get it hot enough to wax. this one takes maybe 30 seconds before its melting wax. the temp dial is a little sketchy, but it works alright. the flat rounded edges make smoothing wax super easy. Its cheap too, so use it twice and you've made your money's worth off it instead of taking it to the ski shop.

Its definitely an iron

i was looking for a good inexpensive iron, and this one fit my needs, good heat settings, easy to use, doesnt have a lot of xcess wax build up. I dig it. And it was low power enough to run it off the inverter in my truck so i can wax anywhere!

Good Product Good Bargain

I have been using this iron for about 3 years. It came as a part of my DaKine tunekit. It is simple to operate and effective. I have to agree with some of the other reviews that the temperature is a bit difficult to control. However, it has never done any base damage to my quiver due to carbonation or excessive heating. Most often the iron cools itself too quickly and is unable to melt the wax until the temperature is manually turned up. Overall for the price and my skill level this is perfect for the do it yourself tune.

Good

The iron heats up very fast. It's affordable. Has a temperature dial. The only problem i have with it is the temp dial feels generic. Other than that, it gets the job done.

I did have an instance that the heat just stopped for no particular reason. Maybe it over heated? IDk.

Great Iron

I've had mine for over a year and it's survived hundreds of waxes. Waaaaaay better than your mom's clothing iron thats for sure. The iron definitely runs a little on the hot side. Easy fix though, just turn the knob down a touch. Also, it heats up in seconds. In my opinion, it's not the best iron you could buy, but it is definitely the best for the price.

Solid iron for the price

Temp seems a bit off at times, but that could be from working in the garage. Works much better than a standard clothes iron and is quite durable (this is my second one in 5 years and my first one easily waxed over 1000 boards). Great starter and travel iron. I wish there was a better mechanism to keep the cord up and out of the way.

Melts wax good.

Simple, convenient, and gets the job done. Great little iron.

Review Title

Great iron for the price. Along with everyone else, the temps are inaccurate at times, but overall relatively steady. Gets hot quick, and does what any other waxing iron does I believe; just gotta be observant of the wax and if it is smoking or not (rare that this has happened to me though)

Nice, a little smoky

I got this iron to take with me when I'm traveling. I will agree with the previous reviewer that the temps are not accurate. If you need it to heat up your adjustments turn hot very fast. Some waxes will start smoking. If you are a temp weenie than I wouldn't recommend this iron. If you want a cheap inexpensive way to wax your board(s)and don't mind opening the windows (you should be waxing in a well ventilated area anyway.) then this is the choice.

works like a charm.

Got it in the mail within a week and was throwing hot wax down on my boards that day. Works great.

It works, but temp control is iffy

Let me start off by saying this iron is affordable and has a nice smooth base that is needed for properly waxing your skis. It's light and cheap. Downside is the temp is not what you set it at. Higher temps are in fact hotter, and lower colder but not necessarily what degrees they say they are. I tested this after noticing it had trouble keeping a steady melt pole with the high temp wax I use on my best skis.

Using a laser thermometer, I set the dial to 130. Once the light turned off indicating the proper temp was reached, I turned on the laser and bam, 120. Egh not to bad, but them the temperature started a dance that went to ~155 and down to ~105, without moving the dial. Granted this might be worse than it will hit when it is on the ski and covered in wax (more insulated on the ski), but it explains why it has trouble keeping a steady melt pool with high temp wax.

Bottom line: works for low temp wax pretty well, but tends to send off some smoke because your temp is jumping to high, and then not melt as well because it got to cold 10 sec later. If you don't care about carbon in your wax and your bases getting a little to hot occasionally, this this iron is a great way to save money on tune ups! (read: cheaper skis this thing is a good deal)

If you want an iron that keeps temp well you need one with a good thermostat and a thicker metal base. More metal = easier for the iron to keep its temp where it is set.

all wax irons do this....unless you purchase a digital iron....or at least the digital iron will show clearly the fluctuations. Everyone I've known that tried to calibrate their iron as you did experiences the same thing- wildly facilating temps.
