Marine grease must be the best option for flex shaft greasing

I admit I use any kind of mechanical grease their is around, it is a bit thick... it works although maybe it heats a little too much...

I've tried a lot of them over the years. AquaCraft's Grim Racer grease worked well but the smell reminded me of an oil refinery. Prather grease from Zippkits.com is an old favorite of mine.

Marine grease from Poboat works fine. No need to spend money on their "grease gun" however IMO.
