Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

The hard waxes in a tin perform exactly the as liquid waxes. Once they dry they both have the same composition.

I use both. If I'm going to apply the wax by hand (and I still do this a lot) I still like waxes in tins. If I know I'm going to use it exclusively with my DA, I buy the liquid. I have a few, such as Megs #16 or  Collinite 476s that only come in a tin. If I apply these with a DA I just scoop a small pea size amount up on my finger and dab it into the applicator.

I good hard wax for winter time is Collinite 476s. Harbor Freight had it on clearance about a year ago and they don't carry it any more. I don't know if you would be able to find it locally but keep an eye out. Other then that I'd go with Megs NXT 2.0 (available in any auto parts store).

Keep your applicators clean. I like to wash then by hand with a little bit of Tide Free liquid. It really does a great job of dissolving the wax. Make sure you rinse out all of the detergent.

Regarding a good carnuba wax....S100 at your local Harley Davidson store. It's the same wax as p21s "concours" wax, a "blend of german and brazilian carnuba wax and other proprietary ingredients".
Usually $16.95 for the s100 vs $29.95 for the p21s. In Hawaii, though,  we pay more due to shipping costs.

You pay more for living in a tropical paradise.

My folks used to live in the Virgin Islands and people all wanted to visit. My fathers deal was he would buy the booze they buy the food. I recently came across a bottle (1/5) of Rum with a price sticker from Woolworths, 0.95
