Default Swix HF & Swix HFBD Question

Due to the cost involved would the Swix HFBD be good enough to use
only, or do you really need to have the HF waxes too?.

I'm curious to know if the HFBD would perform that poorly if the
conditions called for HF. Any feedback is appreciated

Thanks
Frank

Default Swix HF & Swix HFBD Question

I think the BD waxes are fine as a total replacement for the HF waxes
and that you don't need the straight HF waxes. For critical races I
wax with the BD waxes or I've been waxing with a moly base and the
straight HF wax over the top.

Jay,

I still have HF6 and 8 and don't want to toss them in favor of BDs
until they're used up. Any recommendations for the moly you use and
the way you apply it to improve the HF?
