Call Wax

Anyone have suggestions on a good quality wax for calls besides Renaissance? I have a box or 2 that I would like to put a quality shine on.

Johnson’s paste wax.

That said, I use Renaissance.

Renaissance is all I use on my turkey calls. Never found it lacking in any area.

Same here.

Can I ask why you don’t like Renaissance?

I do like Renaissance. I use it on alot of my trumpets. I'm just experimenting on a couple boxes that I take with me in the woods and looking for a good paste wax that leaves brings out the grain as well as provides a good layer of protection.

Is there a benefit to waxing a box call or is it just for looks?

I'd be scared to get it on the rails or bottom of lid accidentally

After seeming this thread when it first started I pick up some of the recommended wax and done my calls that I carry all the time…Rain or shine they are with me…I couldn’t believe how much that wax brought them back to life.

I will forever do this now

Good deal. After trying 3 different paste wax brands on calls, I find that Old Masters paste wax works best for the box calls that I'm putting them on. I am applying it to turpin style boxes that have smooth sides and lids. It really helps make the grain stand out.
