Water-Soluble Boot Joy Juice

Recommended Posts

Regarding use of a boot lubricant, has anyone tried a water-soluble astro-glide for your bindings?

I must admit, my hand has been quite slippery when I tested it ...lol.... Seems to wash off fast, so shouldn't matter to the binding?

I can ask my wife for a link...NOT!!!!.....

I just use barbasol shaving cream. It's works perfect! Foamy lube getting it on and washes completely off in seconds. It's also super cheap. I never understood how there is a market for selling high priced boot lube. It must be that no one knows about using shaving cream. Try it once and you'll never go back. My $.98 can lasts all season for everyone on my boat.

Thanks for the nice tip. I was joking around a little last night, but seriously, using a water-soluble lube might work well. I just need to get the new bu in the water to try.

May be time for new bindings. None of the new ones should need any lube. I haven't lubed up bindings in years...but with my old Liquid Force Ultra Suctions, I used an aloe gel.

agreed; works great but don't let that can get lost in the boat interior; it will end up a rust bomb.

However, when I go over to a nearby private lake they always supply "moose juice" for bindings

I haven't used binding lube since my hyperlite highbacks from 03.

I'm sure there are still plenty of newer bindings that need lube. Mine are '07 Gator Saints:

Mine have a lot less of the gold than pictured, so they look much better. I love the bindings; great support, the foot bed is comfy, and they are built very well. But they are tough to get in/out of. No way I'm blowing cash on newer bindings when these work perfectly fine once they are on.
