The following is a recent un-solicited testimonial.
I received my RAY'S WAY kit just a day before we left for skiing at Gore Mountain and then Whiteface at Lake Placid, NY. I didn't have time to look through the kit what with the trip preparations, so tossed the whole box in with the rest of the luggage. I'm extremely glad I did, since the conditions at Gore were not exactly ideal. Let's just say our skis were in need of some serious tuning by the end of the first day. I decided to give the RAY'S WAY kit a try for the first time in our hotel room at Lake Placid-- not ideal conditions , but I had a need. I mounted a boot on each ski to hold the brakes back, and rigged up a few chairs as a makeshift workbench. I spread some newspapers around to contain the expected mess, having done hot waxing in the past. It took me a while to read through the directions for each step (quite thorough, they are!), but I had no trouble following them and found your system just as easy and intuitive as you claim. In an hour or so, I had tuned and waxed two sets of skis. I found I hardly needed the newspaper, as the process is nearly mess-free. The next day, we found our skis performed at least as well as they do after a professional tune-up. Since then, I've used the kit a number of times (with a proper workbench), on skis and snowboards with even better results. I think it now takes me less time to maintain two pairs of skis than it does for me to drive them to the ski shop. That's not counting the time waiting for them to be done and the return trip to pick them up! Then there's the avoided expense to boot! You've got a wonderful product, and I'm very happy with it.
