This is the worst wax out there ,is not reliable, is very unpredictable no matter the temperature your melt and poured is horrible.

Perfectly fine

I purchased the 10 pound bag to test this wax. It seems to be a very nice wax. Set up perfectly and just a little shot from the heat gun was needed.
I have decided to switch to the coconut soy wax CS carries now but this will be a great back up. No more GB464 for me.
I think patience when trying new waxes is definitely needed. CS customer service has always been a great go to for any questions that arise. I love the fact that I can text them a question and it comes back quickly! Thank you so much!

I have always used this wax and I love it. They key is temperature. I pour at 160 degrees, with an ambient temperature of 80 degrees. I will add the chart from their PDF here. The room temp is very important. My tops are always smooth and I never have any issues. I don't use the heat gun ever.

Ambient Room Temperature - Wax Pour Temperature
60 to 70°F (15.6 to 21.1°C) - 170 to 180°F (76.7 to 82.2°C).
70 to 80°F (21.1 to 26.7°C) - 160 to 170°F (71.1 to 76.7°C).
80 to 90°F (26.7 to 32.2°C) - 145 to 155°F (62.8 to 68.3°C

My regular wax!

This is the wax I use every day for my candles. It took me a while to figure out the best pouring temp for my ambient air conditions but it's super consistent once you find that sweet spot. Finished and fully cooled candles can be sensitive to frosting when switching from one extreme temp to another but when kept in the advisable storage temperature range, I've had candles that decorate my house/shelves for years without frosting. I have had some issues with sinkholes but usually that's an environmental thing for me and I choose sinkholes over pouring cooler and my candles frosting as they cool. I MUCH prefer this wax to 444 or 464 and it looks a lot nicer after it melts and cools. I love its throw and even burn. Giving it 4 stars simply because it can be pretty temperature sensitive which can be frustrating for new users (and okay, it's still frustrating at times after a few years but I know my little eccentricities at this point)!

I made 12 candles using this wax and every one had a circular crack in the center and was slightly sunk in. I used my heat gun to try to fix it but that crack kept re-appearing. But I did like that every candle looked smooth and vibrant in the glass. They also had a great hot throw.

Despise this wax

Absolutely hate this wax! I was using 444 and it is not discontinued. I thought I would try this out to see how it is since its new and I feel like I wasted money. I purchased 20lbs of wax and EVERY SINGLE candle I made has sinkholes and cracks. I followed all instructions on pour temp, set temp etc. Super disappointed that all the wax, fragrance oils and jars I purchased are basically a waste, not to mention my time making them.
