Thread: Dubbin wax

  1. #1

    Default Dubbin wax

    In a pinch, what do you use as an alternative?
    It's not the heat, it's the stupidity.
    What manner of jackassery will I be subjected to today?

    Spit.

    Ok, a more 'politically correct' way of putting it would be 'lickin my fingers'.

    If my fingers are moist, I can dub my thread just fine, but if they are dry, forget it!

    When I told the guy at Sportsmans Warehouse that I was fumbling the dubbing he said try the stuff that administrative assistants put on their fingers to turn paper/count money. I never tried it so can't say.

    I use spit or a good single malt, just wet the end of one finger as you take a sip

    Ski Wax (Swix V40 Blue Extra) is a very fine dubbing wax.

    I agree with Tob1. Ski Wax works very well. You want something that is tacky, not wet or soft.
