Best grease for spinning reels?

Super lube comes off as good body, but too sticky.

I've got this berkley grease that's very slick, but it has no body

What's a really good, saltwater friendly grease that can be bought in small quantities?

Thanks.

    I know a couple of people who swear by cal's grease for their spinners, defined small quantities.

    I've been repairing my own and customer's gear for many years now and use two types of grease when it's appropriate... For drag washers only it's Shimano's drag grease (part #DRAGGR), but Cal's is probably just as good and certainly cheaper (you get more....). For gears and such all I ever use is Kendall GT High temp grease. Any auto store should have it, and a can (about 1/2 pint) is enough to last you for years and years. The stuff is blue in color and works very well for conventional or spinning reels. By the way the only oils I ever use are good quality gun oils like Break Free or Gunslik. Avoid "Three in One" oil like the plague since it will turn into glue or varnish as it gets old on your reel parts.... Can't remember how many reels I've repaired just by removing old 3 in 1 oil residue....

    i ran out of my penn grease about an hour ago.. didnt know i was out, had my reels broken down, and opened it up, GONE! had to run to autozone to get something on the fly since the reels were torn down.. picked up this stuff called green grease.. excellent stuff.. feels like the gears are cushioned by air.. havent been tested under fire yet, but here on dry land my reels are now even smoother.. good ****
