I got it for cheaper, which was good. It's my first equipment purchase of the 2009-2010 season. (And it is replacing my 12-year old travel (clothes) iron with the broken handle... I don't think this new one will fall apart when I try to move it which, while less exciting, is probably a good thing.)

Anyone else gearing up?

I'm convinced that all those are actually the same design, marketed under
Swix


Wintersteiger



Dakine



SKS



Maplus



Toko



Bakoda



and a dozen others I've missed.

That said, there is a model A and a model A v.2 (Toko/Maplus/Wintersteiger), which (v.2) is the one I prefer and which has the most obvious advantages over arrowhead-shaped clothes irons, namely the baseplate shape doesn't actually push wax off the ski as the iron travels along the ski.

Yeah, probably just some small company in Switzerland that makes irons and sells them cheap to everyone.

I've always kind of had that theory with Canadian bottled water. What's so special about the water up there?? Everyone knows there is a family sitting at their kitchen sink all day just bottling tap water and selling as some special product..

Just like when you call a 900# David & when you think you have a Hottie on the other line you just have a heavy Lady holding a baby while using one of those Irons laugh....
