    It seems to me that marketing by the owner of the company should not be posted in the gear review forum.

    He posted a link to his website that has REVIEWS by users of his product...

    It seems to me, that there are a few people here on BOL that have been giving T.Stoughton a hard time about his new product. It also seems to me that those people being the harshest, have not even tried the stuff. The above posting of his website has reviews by some prominent BOL members that have only good things to say about the product when they used it. So perhaps those that have anything negative to say, should hold off until they have tried it. I think that product announcements or "marketing" are sometimes the only way I might hear about products such as this. This IS the place for them. And no, I have not tried the wax, but I probably will after reading about it here on BOL.

    for those that may have missed the point, here are the five reviews to which the link in the original post led:

The durability is excellent so you won't go through as much wax and you don't have to scrape it all off to go fast. This saves time and doesn't make a big mess. Follow the application instructions and you will be graced with a lot of glide and speed.

    I have ridden this wax down to -5F and up as high as 45F with very good results at both extremes. I will be recommending this wax to anyone who is looking for a fast, durable wax.

    The way you judge wax performance is simple… by the way it glides. I noticed the performance of HOT ROD the first time I got off the chairlift. I stepped down, put my back foot on the board and glided a distance, over to where the group congregates and buckles-in. My friend sitting next to me on the chair had to skate several steps to get over to the group. I waited several seconds for him to arrive and exerted less energy getting there. We then buckled-in and headed down a catwalk; my friend was slightly ahead of me. In no time I had passed my friend and gained a significant lead. I ran away from everyone I rode with, all day long, and it wasn’t because of superior riding ability, it was because of the wax!

    While I do enjoy performing all my own preparation and maintenance on my boards, I do not have the time to wax the boards for the given conditions the night before every ride. For years I have searched of the one wax that will handle all conditions, with no sacrifice in performance, and last more than one days ride. With HOT ROD wax, the glide has been superb no matter what the conditions, be it sub-zero, crunchy snow at first chair or mid-afternoon wet, heavy snow and I am getting up to five days ride out of one application.

    The bottom line - day after day, this wax has proved its superiority and durability, no matter what the conditions or temperatures. Buy the wax, follow the directions and enjoy the glide!

    I am not one of them and would not speak without trying it.

    Yes, reviews on his website. Let's get real, those are reviews he chose to put on his website. Just like most every other company that has a website for marketing and puts up testimonials by customers.

    There is a significant risk of bias in the collection of reviews and it does not belong in the review section. It is marketing by a vendor and belongs elsewhere.

    Let those individuals start the thread and post their reviews in this forum.

    Is it actually you guys contention that anyone who sells a product for alpine gear can start a thread on their product in the review section. Provided that they have hand chosen reviews or testimonials of the product on their website?

    Again, I am not saying anything about the product, just the marketing technique. I am not in favor of Bruce starting a thread with all the great reviews he gets by email, or Donek, Catek, Prior or any other company providing links to testimonials in the review forum.

    Not an accurate analogy. This IS Fin's website.

    LCS we will be giving FREE sample while they last which I expect to be all of 5 minutes. To the other concerns the testimonials are everything we have recieved(.) We have already tested and got our lumps out of the way before we went to sales and marketing! All we ask is that you follow the included instruction card because it's important. It part of product design. See you at LCS!

    Put this marketing in the Vendor Announcements Forum. This is not Gear Reviews.

    If you have an issue, take it to Fin or Jack. They will move the thread if they see fit. You have made your view known more than once, step off your soap box.

    Not my favorite thing to do, but it is done. I suggested they could clean up my ramblings or whatever else they consider appropriate.

    If you did not know the vendor, you might be able to see the conflict with vendors marketing in the review section. He already has solid thread about his wax on the main forum. It should be left there or in Vendor's Announcements.

    Thumbs up 5 days......

    ... and I finally need to rewax. Rode 2 warm days, 2 colder and one very cold day and the wax performed great in all conditions, Excellent glide!!! It never felt as though I had the wrong temp wax on, which in my opinion can be worse than no wax at all. I'll be ordering more!

    Thumbs up This stuff works!

    Apologies to T.Stoughton for waiting a week to post this little ditty on his wax.

    He had to do a rush job putting Hot Rod on my board at Lovey last week so I could make the 'short bus' with Ink and Marion and crew,so I wanted to ride at home with another application before posting my thoughts.
