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.
