Skafars Neon Wax is a soft wax you can apply to your sighter material to make it more visible or to any tippet to turn it into a sighter. I dab it on with my thumb with a little side to side motion as I slide the leader along. It is exceptionally bright and will help you see a dull sighter a lot more easily at distance. You can also wipe it off easily with a cloth or with a few swipes of your fingers. I generally need to reapply it a couple of times a day to maintain brightness. The wax does not increase flotation so apply some Payette Paste as well if you want flotation.
Application tip: It applies best when you trap the tippet/leader between your thumb while the tippet is under tension. When temperatures are cold it is wise to blow on the wax to warm it and make it soft before applying to the leader. If it is warm, put the wax under the water for a minute to harden it a bit. I carry a small towel with me to wipe the wax off my thumb or the leader.
Your request for review came before I even had a chance to fish it.

Neon Wax Works
This is a game changer for me. The sighter just pops out, no matter what the light conditions.

Skafers Neon Wax
Great stuff that really shows up. Use it a lot when I move to shallower water and my main sighter is out of the water.

I've tried the Skafars Neon Wax and a wax made by another company, Skafars is the best. Easy to apply and take off. I use the orange, it's very visible even on 6X.

Works like a charm
Super easy to apply. Very visible even on 5x. From other reviews I knew to put an old handkerchief in my pocket for any clean up or wipe off, though frankly it was not that messy. I may just skip using a sighter - just tippet and this stuff.

Solution to a problem I didn't know I had
This stuff is great! Brightens up my sighter and has made fishing that much easier. Don't know how I lived without this stuff. Be warned it can be a little messy, so you have to exercise caution during application. Other than that A++

This stuff is amazing. It's incredibly easy to see, even when adding to 5x or 6x tippet. Plus it stays on almost all day during hard fishing.

works as promised
I love being able to adjust my sighter on the fly as conditions change. easily wipes on and off, but stays on long enough to be effective. I love it!

It works, almost as well as sighter tippet
My experience is the wax is not as visible as my sighter material but is perfect for adding to adapt to changing depths as mentioned in other reviews. Get some, you will find it useful.
Purchased the yellow, green, pink.

I fished a micro leader for the first time a few days ago and although I really liked that I could get good drifts at a greater distance, I also noticed that I couldn't really see my sighter as well as I needed or wanted to. A quick application of the red wax made a huge difference in spotting and tracking my sighter on those longer casts. I'll pick up a second contrasting color for different light situations.
