I never use rail lube, but if I were to use any it would be Jig-A-Loo.
Maybe you've elaborated on this in the past, and I missed it. (If so, I'm sorry about asking for a repeat.) Are you doing something else to protect the serving, do you not find the rail lube effective, or is there some other reason for not using rail lube? Thanks.
Rail lube will drag dirt into your trigger/string latch area and cause a condition where you won't be able to cock your bow. The trigger will have to be serviced to get it to cock again. It is a factory service item and will have to go back to the factory.
On a side note, I had a customer bring in a PSE Copperhead last fall. The barrel looked like it had been sanded with 80 grit sandpaper. I had shot over 1000 shots through a copperhead and mine looked like new. He used rail lube and I didn't. The rail lube actually caused it to wear faster.
Thanks for the answer; makes sense. So you use nothing, correct? Do you do anything else to make the serving last? Think I saw mention on another board of wrapping it with gut (forget if that was the exact term used, but something like that).
I use Halo serving and lately I've been experminting with Angel Majesty serving. Both of these servings will last much longer than most of the factory servings. A few manufacturers have switched to Halo and some are using Angel Majesty.
The quality of your serving has much to do with how long it lasts. I got 25 shots from my factory servings on one of my high end bows, switched to Angel Majesty and it now has over 100 shots and isn't showing any wear. I didn't use rail lube on either serving. The bow has a camo string deck and it doesn't show any signs of wear. I'm sorry, but I don't have any idea what gut is.
