We all love a fresh TJ. Whether it’s using white or black tape, the finished product always looks just a little bit better with that fresh coat of wax. Let’s take a look at some of the thing wax can do for your TJ.
The purpose of taping our sticks revolves around the ability to better handle the puck. Wax created a waterproof barrier that not only keeps the tape (temporarily) for getting wet, but also provides just a little tackiness to the blade for added control. Pro tip: don’t be the guy who dips your TJ into a bucket of wax, see below.
A good looking TJ, is a good looking TJ. Adding some wax can give it that look that we all crave before we step out onto the ice. Look good, feel good am I right? Add some wax to your TJ for a nice clean look, a little wax over a black TJ really looks nice.
Stick and blade care is pretty important unless you are getting your sticks for free. Applying a fresh coat of wax after a new TJ can protect the blade, even if just a little, from some of the hardships of the corners or those sick toe drags we know you guys are pulling.
Having the right feel on your twig makes all the difference. The feeling of a freshly waxed stick vs one that is not can really be felt on the ice, especially after a few shifts. Unless you want to be applying a new TJ every time you get off the ice, (personally we wouldn’t mind that, the shop is here) We suggest having a bar of wax in that bag.
