What kind of Lube for Stabilizers?
« on: Wed, 31 July 2019, 23:32:03 »
I'm sure this has been answered somewhere, but all the threads I've found so far are several years old.

As the title says: what kind of lube do you find works best for stabilizers? I've been just using what I have lying around (Krytox 205g0). But I'm curious if a lighter, thinner lube might be "better." What's everyone's thoughts?

I have great success with Superlube. Makes the stabs smoother less rattle and most important more silent.

I use it for all plastic on plastic interaction, and super lube grease for the spots where the wire rests in the housing.
