There’s clearly a market opportunity for some kind of product to lengthen the life of trim/centre lines. Like Duotone now make board pad protectors maybe this is the next accessory.

One problem with wax is that sand gets stuck in it making an abrasive.. I have waxed my depower before though.. seemed to help in the short term.

Wax doubles the life of my leaders and chicken lines. I'm in Michigan so it's good to know I'll have to give up wax if I move to Mexico. I do love Mexico but it would be so hard to give up winter. I really do love kiting on the ice and snow
Alright. Now you're going to need to teach me what there is to like about ice, snow... and actually mostly rain. We're skipping Mexico for the first time in 30 years (covid). It's usually around Sept 20 and I start getting horny for a taco.
In dark, gloomy, rainy Western Washington state.
