How Often Do You Lube?

Hey guys. I was just wondering how often people lube their SLG bolts. Last time, I think I overlubed and caused some major problems...just looking for suggestions here. Should you lube after a day of playing? After shooting through three cases? Any input would be great. Thanks.
Pew pew pew

You can get away with lubing every other weekend.

i lube mine right before i go and play for the day. if i am playing a 24 hour plus big game i usally lube it a little before the night play so nothing happens. but remeamber to use dye lube.

I suffered the SLG common issue of "ball getting stuck" at the feedneck. Turns out was the bolt.

I used to lube at end of game -- store SLG marker for a week till the next game.

I now:
1. Stopped using the Dye Lube and switched to PB Jelly
2. Lube immediately BEFORE game --- clean and RElube AFTER game before storage.

No more SLG issues at all.

i used to have bolt sticking issues too, but i just reduced the amount of lube and never had a problem again. i lube mine before i play. usually the night before or right before i leave then i clean it off once done

It says every 10,000 balls, but I do every other time.
I ball hard.

After a day of balling I take the gun apart and clean it, then lube and put it back together. Never had any problems.
