    1: Hair conditioner watered down ( no good for me as i've got no hair).
    2: STP Son of a Gun...( your elastic will last for years using this stuff).
    3: If you're a tightwad...plain old lake water.
    I got a new rod for the wife. I'll miss her, but it's a quality rod.

            Since using doubled up lackie (Preston Slip) I have not found the need to add any lube to it as it works fine without.

            However, should you need to lube your lackie, in the past i have used watered down hair conditioner.

            Ask the wife beforehand though as the one i nicked was apparently £15 a bottle

            I then used herbal essences after a right bollocking and anyway it smelt nicer too

              Conditioner or shampoo will rot elastic, I use either water or occassionally Son of a Gun or Amour All which is the same, mainly using it when I first put the elastic in then not again. I've had elastics in over 10 years with no problem!

                Is that a definite that conditioner will rot elastic? Is it a detergent? Only while i was using it i never had a problem until i changed over to hollow back in the day.

                  Used comfort/lenor years ago and it deffo rots elastic. Moved onto hair conditioner due to availability (two blondes in the house!) and it was ok but tended to stay in the top kit too long and then congeal if you're not careful. It also acts as an attractant for dirt and grit meaning you have to keep flushing your top kits regularly. Been on the armourall/son of a gun about six years now and yet to have a problem apart from with pure latex which I put down to it being crap.
                  Top and bottom of it is solid elastics up to and including No6 you shouldn't need any lube other than water, if you do then your set up is wrong.
                  Anything over a No6 then use son of a gun/armourall if you think you need it.

                      Seems I'm a tight git, but I am from Yorkshire.
                      I have an incidental on my left shoulder, he's always there, he's my friend.
                      He says he gives me good advice. does he ?
