Before doing the lappinga and filling the new disks with grease, I wanted to test the Carl's drag grease to see how it functioned. It seems to be very waxy, which means that until it warms up, it seems to increase the drag a bit from where it is when warm. Granted, I am using the old, non carbontex disks for this test, and doing so before lapping, so that might make a difference too. However, while this increase plus normal differences between static and dynamic friction probably don't matter much for heavier fishing, it seems to be a pretty big difference when set for protecting 2lb test line.
What is the suggested method for reducing the difference between static and dynamic friction while making it so drag pressure remains constant for a whole day even when some significant drag use events happen? I think the lapping and carbontex will help, but maybe a switch to a less waxy grease is in order? How do you pick something that keeps drag constant without becoming higher friction when the drag heats up/lubricant evaporates? Or no grease at all?
I am sure one of you guys who uses BFS a lot has figured this out!

Any other specific recommendations for a good lightweight grease for a BFS drag? maybe something NGLI 00 or 0 weight? Is that too light?
If there is another Duethlon product designed for super low drag pressures found in BFS that I missed, please let me know.
