To wax, or not to wax, that is the question!
what are the benefits of wax laces?
When you pull them tight, they stay tight. They tend to last longer too since they don't fray. The yellow Graf laces are the best laces imo.
Anyone here remember the old nylon laces that came in different colors?
Wax is the way to go, i threw some yellow wax laces on my 705s even tho they come with white wax laces but i like the yellow on grafs, anyway they hold however you tighten them which is a big plus. I wear my skates semi-loose and they wont loosen up much more during a game with the wax laces.
Need I say more?
I've really noticed no difference...haven't really had an issue with either, cept I do like my yellow wax laces on the skates I've got, looks sweeet.
wax laces...you only have to tie em up once. they stay tight all game long
I've noticed that the wax can eventually wear off.
Damn, those are sweet!
Thanks for all your replies!
I like the non-waxed ones, the waxed ones tend to give me blisters and don't really make a difference for me.

waxed, yellow ones all the way.
Yeah, a lot of players on my high school team wore those in the early 80's! They were hard to tighten, though! Good old red-and-white skates laces!
Waxed. I never used them until 2 years ago, but they are SOOOOO much easier to tighten, they don't cut into your fingers like the non-waxed laces, and the little ends don't come off nearly as much.
I'm the opposite, I think the waxed ones are easier on my fingers and I also find they hold a lot better.
I second that!
