Period of
Product Use:
1 year1 of 3 people found this review helpful.

4 years
Products Used:
the mineral oil out of an electric hair clipper (long story)-it killed a set of o-rings in my black maxx
a variety of other lubes
Marker Setup: pmi black maxx, 9 oz co2, stock hopper, dye slick lube, stock barrel
Smart Parts Ion, Halo-B w/ rip-drive, victory board, and ST pulley shim, SP QEV, Dye stickys, locking feed neck, body kit, on/off drop forward, mini-maxflow, new designs bolt, scenario dreams Tboard, Freak back w/ All American front, CP reg/matrix reg (can't decide), angled adaptor for reg, gripframe, CP trigger/ New Designs delrin roller trigger (roller trigger came with it), pure energy 72ci 3000psi tank (also came with it) (those 4ci more than a 68 makes it a lot bigger), and a remote coil that came with the gun (if only i would have had it back in the day(3 years ago)) that i don't know what to do with

note: some of the upgrades have not yet been purchased due to the fact that i am a slacker who doesn't have any more money since he doesn't have a job because there arn't any openings at the local paintball store.
Strengths: It lubricates-(no kidding)
It comes in a cool looking tube
Weaknesses: It gets runny and starts to separate in tube if left in hot sun
Review: I first got this lube a little over a year ago. I needed some lube for my black maxx so i raided my mothers hair cutting supplies and found some kind of oil. (I said "mineral oil" in "similar products", but, truthfully, i have no idea what it was(probably vegetable oil).) I used it for a few months before i realized that my o-rings were practically falling off the bolt. This put me out of commission for about a month. I had to replace all of my o-rings. (This time I used polyurethane ones.) While I was ordering them, I decided to get some new lube (since I didn't have the money to do this again). I decided to buy the Dye Slick Lube because I said "Hey it's Dye, How could it be bad." (Truthfully, i bought it because i thought the tube looked cool.) It only cost about $10. (It is pretty sad that a good priced tube of lube costs about a forth the price of the gun i was using.) i put it on my Black Maxx and it worked like a charm. One day i had left it out in the sun and when i went to put it on it was all thin and runny. All i had to do was shake it up and then cool it off by running the tube under cool water. the lube should have a nice, slightly greasy consistency. it will stay on a gun for a pretty long time as long as you are fairly generous with it.
Conclusion: I give this a 10 because how couldn't you. it works great. my only problem is that you can't put it on an ion because you have to use shocker lube. (If you can, please feel free to post a comment.)
10 out of 10

for the ion you don't only have to use shocker lube. i've used slick honey and dye slick lube on it before. works just fine.

You can use any lube you like on an Ion, chances are it'll work fine, but the warranty is void if you dont use Dow 33 (Shocker lube/Sl33k).

EDIT: That mineral oil story is funny...
