I've been using MTB "paste greases" designed for wet and coastal ride situations.

Specific brand is Morgan Blue

aquaproof paste is product name.

 

I used White Lightning Crystal in the past, was good, can't seem to get it locally anymore so tried the Morgan Blue Aquaproof Paste as an alternative.

So far so good, seems very similar and no shouting clients.....

Will look for aquashield.

I like corrosion x..stays put nicely and is very clingy.   I used yamalube for that purpose as well....between packing handle entry points and ar switches......I never had a problem with either.

I use OMC wheel bearing grease.  Made for submersion and saltwater.  WILL NOT swell rubber seals.  Be careful, many greases will interact with rubber seals and soften/swell them.

Was that from the ebay listing?  I ordered from marine sanitagion.  14+ 10$ prority 2 day.  curious how it works with seals.  Corroison x doesn't seem to have any adverse effect.

Mainly ordered out of sheer curiosity.

2017 has proven to be the year of the lube for me :)

 yes ebay...you got the same stuff from marine sanitation for $22 total ?.....double ouch

 

  very interested to hear your opinions when you have tried it for awhile

 

 they say it plays nice with o-rings so i'm thinking it should play nice with seals as well

One thing to think about is the viscosity of the grease, especially if you are planning to pack the reel.  When the weather is cold, it might make the reel very difficult to crank.  I learnt this by packing my VS with a marine wheel bearing grease and leaving the reel outdoors when the temperature plunged to below freezing overnight.
