When I wax my conis I only wax the "spring side" and spring. Not the actual killing jaws. Some old school longliners did the same thing with there coils springs. Just waxing the jaws up too the levers.

I do the same with my 330s. It makes them lightening fast.

I was told by my mentor not to wax water traps because it makes them too sensitive, so I haven't tried it yet and I hadn't even dyed a trap until this year, so it's all a new learning experience for me.

I don't know whether waxing my water traps is right or wrong. I was taught to wax, and it works for me, so I'll keep doing it.
