The pickle is like magic!

Just scrape off the big chunks with a rubber "wax comb" or something similar

Then it's pickle time!

Nothing works better at removing wax.

Ok i will give the pickle a try

thanks. No problems with epoxy an mineral spirits?

Nope, just don't use acetone.

Pono: Marlon Lewis actually said acetone in small amounts was what he used...

i suspect much of what you are saying is that 70 lbs difference.
But not all of it. I like the workout of a hard board to stand on. At my age i badly need it.

I recently stepped down from a JL SG 8'7 to a ST 7'10. I must say i had agonized about the move thinking it was going to be too small. Quite the opposite! First time out and I knew i had been on a board too big. (mind you i only weigh 155). But the feeling of control makes me realize that sometimes the larger board would get away from me. Now I know that in high winds and chop that longer waterline will come in very handy (especially I do miss the better tracking).

they say 20 uses last
so less than a dollar a use.

Wax is probably marginally cheaper.

How does it feel underfoot?

I like this stuff.
 https://www.viskus.com/

Itís worked great for me now for some few months. Cheap as hell. I put wax on it. Itís paper thin and very grippy. I get the ďstickiestĒ one. If it wears out, peel it off and put on more. Itís so damn cheap itís no big deal. I canít give long term results yet because Iíve only used it a few months...but itís holding up and going strong so far.

the stickiest is the smallest bead? it is cheap...If it lasts.

Not really, that's the reason most people use deck pads. Wax is fine if you're not standing in one place most of the time, but if you do, then you get bare spots. RSPRO hexatraction works well--just put them right where you get the bare spots. You'll have to strip your wax first, but once they are set you can wax right over them and the wax stays in place much better.

had heard some mixed reviews on the hexapro but you like it?
