Ice quality varies from rink to rink - cold barns in Northern Ontario have hard fast ice, while ice in sunny Florida is as hard as a 7-11 Slurpee. Serious players hate ice and snow build-up on their blades. That's why we designed our howies hockey stick wax to help prevent ice and snow build-up allowing you to feel the puck. Our hockey wax is made from a blend of soft microcrystalline and other waxes to give you better puck control. Howies stick wax will prolong your tape job. The tin provides a perfect storage spot without your stick wax rubbing off on the rest of your equipment. It smells so good you'll want to eat it... Do not eat!
