The Best String Lubricant Is...
I went out and tried some various string lubricants. I ranked them below. Note: all tests were performed on Dunlop Ice with various stages of wear in a Biomimetic MAX 200G. I found RemOil and PTFE spray to perform so similarly that I grouped them together.
1.RemOil with teflon (Gun Oil) and PTFE spray.
2. Armor All (Original)
3. Olive Oil (Extra Virgin)
4. Vaseline Moisturizing Lotion
5. Baby Oil
Best Initial Performance
1. Olive Oil
2. RemOil with teflon (Gun Oil) and PTFE spray.
3. Armor All
4. Baby Oil
Best Long Term Performance
1. RemOil with teflon (Gun Oil) and PTFE spray.
2. Armor All
4. Baby Oil
5. Olive Oil
RemOil with teflon (Gun Oil) and PTFE spray: Stays on and offers great performance.
Armor All: Offered great performance but I found that it didn't stay on as well.
Lotion: No crazy spin but it lasted longer than I expected.
Olive Oil: Scary spin for the first 5 minutes.
Baby Oil: Spin was alright but the durability wasn't
Making a comeback after ski season.
