A I currently use sex wax and have very little complaint about it. It's an awesome product.
But I once used a teammates was where it left your blade much more sticky. I can't remember the name but it was just what I'm looking for. It was the type where you could lay your stick flat on the puck (crosby's famous goal) and pick it up with no skill. The puck would literally stick to your stick picking it up the ice. It was amazing wax for optimum puck control.
Anyways if anyone knows of any very grippy stick waxes please let me know. Most pro shops around only offer sex wax and another product that comes in a black "armpit" type dispenser.
I melt candle wax all over the blade. It cools into hard little droplets. Then I pass the blade over my gas stove. As the wax remelts it is absorbed into the tape by osmosis. I let the blade cool without touching it. The end result is perfectly waterproof tape with a scratchy texture.
I think it gives a nice feel. It also makes the tape last 3 times longer than normal.
I use blade butter, never really noticed the smell but I guess it does smell like deodorant when you apply it. I use it mainly to keep water and snow from accumulating. I also spray the tape with scotch guard spray, let that dry then apply the blade butter. Tape seems to last longer.
