Van Staal raised the price of the grease tube to $46. Better spend my money on gold.

 

What can be used instead ?

The guys at Saltwaters said I could use Lubriplate Marine Grease.  The funny thing is that if you look at the Van Staal website, you will actually see a can of Lubriplate being used in one of the pictures.

I fill mine with mobil gear oil. works good . I would say it has a little more tension while reeling then grease but i will know when it is leaking also which is a plus in my book.

I've been using "Finish Line- Premium Grease for Bicycles w TEFLON fluoropolymer" for over 25yrs. I'm not sure how it compares to Van Staal grease (other than price), I've never used VS grease. I will say it repels water like no other grease I've used. I've used it in all my bike applications (mountain and road), all my fishing reels, countless outdoor applications, (door hinges, Locks, etc). I use it on tools, and my Jeep. It's like magic how a little amount repels water totally. The old stuff had a unique odor to it, but the new stuff is basically odorless. I love it!

I hear that tsunami grease is a third of the price but not yet proven. 

The Tsunami stuff works in Lefty and righty reels too
