Common uses for brushes in this kit:
- In general the progression of brushes after scraping wax from your base is to start with the stiffest and end with the softer/finer brush. In this set, brass is the stiffest and horsehair the finest, however, there is no need to start with a brass brush on softer waxes because the nylon is perfectly efficient at removing this wax.
- Start with brass if brushing cold-rated very hard waxes.
- You can also use brass to renew your base structure and open pores for improved wax absorption. Do this by brushing tail to tip. Pores get beat down in the tip to tail direction and close. Brushing with brass in the opposite direction (tail to tip) can open the pores.
- Brass is also commonly used to brush dirt and old wax off a ski surface before waxing.
- Nylon is the workhorse brush; use it to remove most of the wax with repeated brushing.
- Horsehair has finer bristles and can reach down into the fine structure of the ski base. Use it after the nylon for final polishing. Also good for buffing racing overlays.
