Re: Accidentally bought Fischer e99 waxing version. First time to wax. Should I keep them?

<t>With Musk Ox....use Red and pink at higher temps....figure it will get worked off on the way down...If I HAVE to will scrape the way telekid said....The thing with wax is it makes the ski faster in all conditions as an old guy that is good...Never lift a ski and shuffle and slide in the flats...I...
