Slipstream vs Froglube

The problem with Frog Lube is that when you get right down to it, it’s an oil.  An Organic Compound at that.
Oils, no matter how slick as snot they are… no matter how good they are… will burn out.  Organics burn out quicker than synthetics. They just do.  Because they are organic.  The phrase “Cooking off” literally applies here.  Synthetics resist cooking off much better.
However the synthetic oils used in Slipstream are not the lubricant.  The fact that they are slick is great… bonus.  And in the SLIPSTREAM STYX, we take advantage of the anti-corrosion properties of the oils.  But either way the oils are only the CARRIER for the actual Lubricant.  The actual lubricant is a Nano Particle.
Metal, even ferous metal is not hydroscopic.  Some guys claims that their lube soaks in, is fictitious. It’s not going to “Absorb” or “Soak” into the metal.  It can work into the microscopic imperfections…. but you still have microscopic imperfections filled with oil.
Slipstream’s Nano Particles cover those imperfections… a microscopic chip and seal, if you will.  It’s gives the lowest coefficient of friction known to science.
And it doesn’t cook out.  It becomes part of the metal.  In fact, it creates a surface harder than the substrate.  Harder.  Slicker.  Wont cook off.  You would literally melt the gun before you would cook out or burn out Slipstream.  You might cook off the carrier oil… but the actual lubricant remains.

This is actually the downside to Slipstream.   The more you use it, the less you need, until you just don’t need anymore.  I’ve not lubed by Glock in 2 years… 3 years.  So then you stop buying it.

And I’ll put STYX against Frog Lube for corrosion protection. Any day.

FACT:  Slipstream kicks Froglube in the face until it’s retarded. 

Now, this is going to raise some hackles. I know that. And that’s why I post things like that… A. Because I like Slipstream. And B. Because Slipstream is better. For you guys that are Froglube Advocates… and that’s fine if you are… I have a question for you. Watch this first:

Okay, It gets sticky and gummy… so when that happens you are going to heat it up again and put more on. That just doesn’t sound like a winning plan to me. This is another reason Slipstream wins. When the oil is gone in Slipstream, the Lube is still there. And it doesn’t get sticky. Ever. I don’t want my gun getting sticky inside. Ever. I want my lube to be slick all the time. But that’s just me. You can be different.

  1. ” Slipstream kicks Froglube in the face until it’s retarded.”
    Pretty much says it all right there!

  2. I re-lube after every deep cleaning just to keep the “grittiness” out, but I’ve never a single issue with Slipstream during the last 3 or so years that I’ve been using it. What really sold me is when I first used it on my old SIG 556 SBR with a suppressor and it never hiccupped. I’ve choked it in as little as 100 rounds with other “premium” lubes, but after a single use of Slipstream was all it took to believe the hype. Great stuff…I keep at least 2 bottles on hand and a small container of the grease on hand at all times.

    I’m dumbfounded why this stuff isn’t out there all over the place. Joe might want to sponsor a few of the 3-gun guys as they are some of the most well known gun abusers/high volume users outside of Special Forces teams.

  3. This stuff is sex lube from the planet Krypton and it also happens to do a bang up job keeping my weapons more reliable than I thought possible.

  4. I like to use Slipstream on things other than guns. Put some on the hinge of a folding knife and that bad boy will open slicker than snot for a loooong time. Even after I washed out the dust bunnies growing inside the handle, the lube keeps on working.

    Squeaky rollers on a dock door at work was driving me nuts. so I found the two culprits and juiced them with some Slipstream, and they quit making noise. I’ve rescues a Wahl hair trimmer that was having some issues with the cutting blades moving back and forth, so rather than throwing them away and shilling out forty bucks for new ones, just a few drops loosened the works up and got it running like new. I cleaned out and then lubed a floor fan that was starting to run funny, and now it works great.

    A few weeks ago I had a spray bottle filled with water for my ironing and the trigger kept sticking. A little Slipstream, and it’s good to go. Saved myself three bucks and didn’t have to go to the store.

    So basically, Slipstream has saved me quite a few bucks by fixing regular household items that most people view as disposable. It’s great stuff.

    1. Agreed. I use the stuff around the house all the time. There are some things it doesn’t make better though, like a steak. 🙂

  5. If you must say it like that its “run through it” not “RAN through it” krikey!

  6. Slipstream STYXX is the go to lube for all my firearms at this point. I tried FrogLube on a couple things and noticed the gumminess the video referred to so I cleaned it off and went back to Slipstream. About the only thing I use the FrogLube for now is knives. I like the fact that it is food grade and biodegradable so I use it on carbon steel cutlery. If the knife is hot to the touch when you put it on you won’t get the gumminess later but it still is not as tenacious as STYXX.

  7. So, basically what I got from the video, if you leave it for a couple months with a thin layer of FrogLube on it, it becomes tacky. Did they just put a little oil in some old cosmoline and call it good?

  8. I used Slipstream on the hinges of a squeaky door. Big mistake. Not because it didn’t work, mind you, but because it worked too damned well. You see, the house has settled a bit over the years, and now the nearly frictionless hinges don’t let the f’ing door stay open. Had to get a rubber doorstop to keep it open.

    Other than that, the stuff is damned near a miracle potion. It’d probably work wonders on arthritic joints if not for the carrier.
