Some of the bearing lubes i've use/used:

- Tri Flow
- Marvel Mystery Oil
- Royal Oil
- Prolong
- Tribo
- WD40
- 0W 30 Mobil One

All work pretty well, just make sure its consitency isn't too thick, and be sure to use one to two small drops.

Kindly specify which brand?

I tried Super Lube once, it has Teflon. I sprayed the oil into a film canister and soaked two good Tamiya bearings overnight. The bearings got messed up. I removed the seal and found white stuff blocking the small balls from turning smoothly.

It works great on plastic gears though (TA03)

God now you're asking lol it was years ago I got it from my brother when he used to work in a machine shop (so I'll ask him if he can remember the name). But I do remember you DON'T soak them over night he said just take of the sheild and give them the lightest of sprays or else you'll over do it and it will go all glugy.
