How often do you silicone?
« on: July 29, 2012, 09:07:14 PM »
I kinda wanted to know how often you guys silicone your beaters..

I have to silicone maybe once every 3-4 weeks. I throw a lot and practice binds a lot..

I use either the Red or Black RTV

What about everyone else?

Whenever it falls out.
The earth spins at over 1000 mph. If you didn't fall off today, quit whining.

I've had better luch using blue rtv... its a silicon gasket maker and I play the mess out of my first run G5 and it lasts months if not longer for me... maybe it also depends on what kind of string you're using
hhmmmmm... saxocrazy.

I could never stand the feel of blue. Yeah, it lasts a long time, but it's wicked slippy the entire time. I use clear, even if I have to replace it more often, it's far superior in play.
