Snap Wax Hockey Stick Wax was the first hockey-specific wax to hit the market over 25 years ago, and is still one of the best hockey stick waxes in the game today. Snap Wax Stick Wax fights off snow and ice buildup for maximum stick handling control without losing your valuable soft puck feel.
Developed by Luc Robitaille, Mark O'Neil (former LA Kings Equipment Manager), and a chemist from USC, SnapWax is different than almost all stick wax in the fact that it does not harden at cold temperatures, unlike non-hockey specific waxes. When wax hardens on a blade, it still prevents snow and slush buildup from happening but puck feel is seriously compromised because the blade faces become too slick. With a slick blade, the puck doesn't grip at all and literally can just fly off your blade when stickhaldning or receiving a crisp pass. Snap Wax came out with a new formula that not only stays soft in cold temperatures but actually improves puck feel and gives a player a similar feel to that of a wooden blade.
Snap Wax is offered in two different colors; black and clear. Clear Snap Wax is clear when applied, making it ideal to use with white or colored tape. Similarly, black Snap Wax is black when applied, making it ideal to use with black tape so you don't have white on top of it (bonus style and swag points). Not to worry, the Max-Performance Sports logo is not on the wax but just in our photos.
