Mast Track Lubricants

I have been using Mclube sailkoat spray to lubricate my mast track which makes lowering main easier. At about $23 for a spray can of it the cost is a tad expensive. I see there are also PTFE dry spray products that cost about 1/3 of the Mclube product which does not list it's main ingredient. Any reason not to use the less expensive PTFE product?

Teflon spray won't hurt anything, and it will certainly reduce friction. Why not?

West Marine currently has 8 ounce McLube spray on sale for $10.39 and they show a regular price of $12.99. you may be buying it in the wrong place.

Re: Mast Track Lubricants

Vaporware thanks for the West tip. I may have confused Amazon on pricing which just checking is $22.50 for 8 oz. and is usually less than West. Guess I better get to West and purchase a couple of spray cans. Still wondering if spray PTFE is just as good.

I'm not sure you can find Teflon spray for a whole lot cheaper than $10.39 for an 8 ounce can. McLube is a known quantity.


I ordered two for store pickup at the sale price.
