Board Specific Iron - Not Optional
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have been waxing my boards for years with a cheapo WalMart clothes iron and thought it was ok. Finally, I broke down and got one of these and it makes a BIG difference. The wax goes on a lot easier and spreads literally like butter instead of gum. It also has numerical temperature settings so you can properly match it to your wax (many waxes state an iron temperature on the packaging). As others mentioned it is also a great size for travel so you can wax your ride when in the hotel/cabin at Jackson Hole. If you spend time tuning your own gear, you will appreciate the time savings and better quality wax a board/ski specific iron gives you.
I usually use my buddies, but i went ahead and bought my own. The iron warmed up quick and spread the wax over the board like butter. Its also compact enough to carry in a backpack.
First time I've ironed, worked perfectly
I bought a full waxing set up hoping to start waxing my own board. I had the choice between getting this dakine iron and a swix iron on sale. I wanted to support dogfunk and dakine so I bought this iron and I LOVE IT. The iron has basically paid for itself already and waxing is sorta relaxing in it self. Definitely recommend. While I can't come to other irons as I dont know, I would say this iron is super easy to use, seems really well made, and I love it.
Best Darn Iron I've Ever Used!
The DAKINE Adjustable Tuning Iron is very user friend - very easy to use. It is ready to go right out of the box - just plug it in, set the dial to the desired temperature and it will let you know when it is ready to be used! Another great spec I like about this waxing iron is the beveled edges. You know when you use a clothing iron to wax your board and you can't seem to smooth out the wax near the edges and it seems like your just scraping the crap out of your edges? (Hopefully I'm not the only one who knows what I'm talking about, haha) Well the beveled edges on the DAKINE Adjustable Tuning Iron make it super-duper easy to spread the wax near the edges without scraping and detuning your edge! I highly recommend this iron to those who do not have a real waxing iron and are using a clothing iron to wax their gear.
Overall this iron will get the job done and server as a nice replacement for whatever non wax approved iron you are using. It heats incredibly quickly to the temperature that you need to melt your wax. I generally stick just under 100F. I'd estimate it takes 10 seconds to get there. Backing it down to a lower temperature is just as fast surprisingly.
I'd say the only thing that I don't care for on this iron is that it scratches very easily. I already have scratches on it after a few uses from the base edge of the board. I would still highly recommend it as it pulls the wax evenly across your board.
Is it worth it to get this over a normal...
Is it worth it to get this over a normal iron
You know to be honest I'm not sure if theres a difference, but once you go wax you never go back! You can no longer use your regular iron for anything but waxing. That said, this may be a lot better I just don't know.
