I put a strip along the bottom, then tape over it from toe to heel. Gives it another layer to protect the bottom of the blade, without adding any real weight. I tried wax, but hated it. Didn't do anything. I use baby powder, though, to keep the tape from getting as wet. Picked that up from Gretzky and Doug Gilmour, who both used baby powder. Works pretty well. I get about 2-3 skates out of a tape job.
