could you post grease pictures and color ?

 

Krytox 227

krytox 225

Tungsten disulfide

Daiwa grease

 

What are you opinion ? 

how tacky they are ?

 

thanks

I'll put something together.  The krytox is very expensive and I'd rather not smear it out.  over 20$ for half an ounce.  And its not very "tacky"  but the film it leaves behind is not like anything else I've used. It's near permanent and very slick.  Like if glue was made out of teflon. 

 

Tungsten disulfide is the mother of all powders.  A teaspoon can cover your living room carpent.......Think of graphite powder used in Pinewood derby cars....only it's better at everything brother.

 

Daiwa grease reminds me of superlooob  or I think #16 shimano grease.  Light slick and very good for freshwater applications where you want a light turning feel and aren't worried about blobbing it over everything to protect against corrosion.   I think it's the same grease they use in the saltiga as it looks like a translucent white there as well.  As it's fully sealed.

 

 

The corrosion x is tacky like yamalube.  Very similar all around.  Although it feels a tad thinner and the coaing / film seems to stay put when applied sparingly to gears  (the film is the most important part).   Very resistant to washout and great on gears and in bearings.

Can be thinned/ cut with corrosion x oil in pretty much any ratio.

 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

I looked at a few places and found the marine sanitation shop had the best price.  Was going to buy from ebay until I saw the other spot.

 

I'll let ya know. 

That's why I figured I'd try it out.  I've always wondered if those generic buna o rings are the same as other seals.  I doubt it.  But I hope this stuff plays nice with all "rubber" types.  

The corrosion x I'm pretty confident in so far.  

It should be here tomorrrow.

 

YAY FOR LUBE!!!!

AquaShield is a pastel blue or bubble gum blue. Super sticky, not for your gear box. I have not had any problems with it deteriorating  seals, using it on rifles, reels, motorcycles, cars when ever I need max protection from corrosion.  For what the op wanted AquaSheld would be hard to beat, For my reels gear box I use Corrosion Block grease.

Good to know!  SOunds like the perfect grease for painting on the inside of anodized frames and such.  Not just blobbing on.  ((that's kind of what I was hoping.))

You guys are advanced grease masters compared to my knowledge.  I have a simple question; got some Penn Grease for my Penn reels, would it also be compatible with my Daiwa BG reels or do I need Daiwa brand grease for Daiwa reels, etc.?  Thanks, OH

Still using Muscle Grease from Muscle Grease Co made in Jackson Center PA. Their LP10 Power Lift grease. Penn several years ago sold it repackaged as Penn Muscle Grease. Lithium based.

I also have Penn Blue Grease both the older version and the current version as well as both types of Cal's.

Use them all, Adding replacement lube with what was in the gear train if it's not a reel that has been cleaned of old grease and needs a complete regreaseing.
