when im being really anal and have a wood blade, i take a piece of the stretchy clear shin tape and put it on the bottom...then tape white cloth tape heel to toe. i go through wood pretty quick, im a big guy, so i do all ican to keep the blade from getting mushy. the stretchy tape repels water well and then i take it all off after the game. i guess i could use the wax, but water would still get thru. tape absorbs the water and makes the blade mushy. for a composite blade or for roller, heel to toe once and leave it till it falls off. less friction on the bottom is better for roller, though i still need the tape for puck feel.
