    New question here. Speedball users - what grease do you use?

    What greases can be used to lubricate the speedball post internals?

    The instructions say a high lubricty petroleum based grease, but can General Purpose or Marine grease be used (ie silicon based greases)? How about "petroleum jelly"?

    I have a Speedball r being shipped and was also curious. I found a Speedball troubleshooting document on the Maverick website that mentioned a light grease and then had "Slick Honey type" referenced next to it. So that is what I plan to use. But I am also interested in what others are using.

    Marine grease can be too sticky, don't use it.

    The less sticky, the better.
