Default What arrow lube?

What is your favorite arrow lube? We are holding our end of the league campout and archery golf shoot the 2nd weekend of June. We want to get every participant a small gift and was thinking a bottle of arrow lube. I think I have used most of the lubes out there over the years and have settled on Woody's as being the best I have used. Cost has gone up a lot the last couple of years, doubled since I first started using it. Anyone else got a favorite that they would recommend?

I've tried everything in my garage and nothing seems to help pulling Axis shafts out of foam targets.

You want my advice? Don't shoot Axis shafts for 3d or target practice.

I've heard good things about the woodys arrow lube.

It's been awhile but what I used was silicone based. Don't remember the name. I use FMJ's so I can't comment on carbons.

Here's an idea. I have been using bullet points instead of field points. They are a little shorter but wider than my arrow shaft. It makes a huge difference when pulling the shafts from the target. My buddy who apparently has too much invested in field points, lube and shaft grippers still struggles to free his arrows. Buy one and try it out.

I use gear shield arrow slick. Found it on Amazon. Works well enough.

Steve. Don't shoot your arrows into a bag target or one stuffed with cloth. The edge of the oversized tip gets hung up bad on the cloth and outer bag target. Gold tip used to make a target tip that was oversized, but it tapered back down to the shaft size where it contacted the insert. That particular tip worked well.

Thanks for the heads up. Hasn't been an issue yet, but I see how it could be.

I haven't used arrow lube for several years (10+) since I started shooting Easton FMJ's but on a whim I decided to buy some arrows from a company called The Stalk Archery out of Eagle Mountain. I like em.. they're about like Easton Axis. I shoot into a big piece of foam that was used for 3d target backstops. Pulled out some stuff called Scorpion Venom that I've had in my quiver forever and it seemed to help. When I lived in Salt Lake, I also used Woody's and it worked well also.
