DYE Slick Lube
Green stuff - Not as popular as other after market lubes
Won't void warranty on DYE/Proto markers.
Safe on o-rings and does not swell.
Not as slick as after market lubes. Does not work well in cold weather.
White of Pink stuff - Same as Dow33 (Look at Dow33 description)
This is a popular slick lube.
One of the slickest lubes you can buy. This enables you to lower LPR and reduce kick.
Most say it does not do as well in cold weather. Problems tend to occur when you overlube which can cause shootdown.
Is Slick Honey really bad in Cold Weather?

I seen people use what would apppear to be almost hand fulls.
For those preaching DOW33, thats what we used on the LED Matrix when it came out and it gummed up in the cold that why we thinned it out with some Gold Cup or KC gun oil or sumfin like that. Hence the creation of "Matrix Muck"
"Matrix Muck" was perferred until Will from Tadao recommend Slick Honey cause he uses it in Trauma's guns. He warned us not to use that much then. Heck I have the same 4 oz bottle I started using 2 years ago taking care of 15 DM's of Notorious and what ever else comes my way. I still have half a bottle.
Any Who thanks for paying attention to the history class.
Buzzy's Slick Honey is usually available in any specialty bike shops... you can find it on various online Paintball stores or you can just google it.
Dow 33 (shocker lube)
Good all around lube
This lube can be used in any weather conditions. The temperature range for Dow 33 is -100 to 400 Degrees Fahrenheit. It's easy to apply on o-rings. It is a pinkish color so its easy to see to lube on the o-rings. Last longer so you don't have to lube after every game. DYE techs now recommend Dow 33 and will not void warantee.
Some say it gums up in the cold. Not as slick as some after market brands.
SLEEK Lube (new shocker lube)
Same as DOW 33 (Shocker Lube)
You might see the lube either in pink or white:

Not to be confused with Dow 55. Dow 55 lube swells o-rings.
Specifically designed for o-rings, and to swell o-rings for sealing applications. However, gun techs have found that Dow 55 actually deteriorates o-rings and eventually breaks the seal. Therefore, it is not recommended on DYE/Proto markers.
- New Favorite lube in the DM/Proto forums. Some say they prefer to use this over Slick Honey.

The smell is hard to describe. The best way I could think of is very lube-like. This smell might turn some people away. I like it though
I proceeded to lube up my two spool valve guns with the stuff. For reference, an ion and a proto were used for testing. While applying the lube it was obvious to me that this stuff was super slick. Not only was it slick, but it was sticky at the same time. The bolts in my guns were moving smoothly as if I applied slick honey to them (my previous favorite lube).
I played a full day with my proto the next day. I woke up bright and early so that I could test the gun is the coldest weather conditions California could have. It was around 50* F, my gun didn't have any dropoff nor did it have any bolt stick. All day the gun worked flawless.
When I got home I took out the bolt and examined it. The o-rings were still super slick. Usually after a hard day of play slick honey would start to come off of the o-rings. During the day I didn't notice any consistancy or velocity improvements. I did not test for that specifically though. To be honest, I was itching bad to go out and play.
-Sticky (lasts longer)
-Designed for paintball (won't swell o-rings)
-Cheap (The price for 2 oz is $13. I use much less of this stuff than other lubes because I didn't need as much. For multiple lubing jobs on my guns and others I have just used the lube that was sticking to the top cap).
-Sticky (hard to get off your fingers)
In conclusion, I would recommend to anyone to buy this lube. You will have to lube your gun less and you will get to play more. I would really like to hear other peoples oppinions on this lube.
Seems to do well in cold weather:

Good Price for the product
stays on o-rings for a long time.
Excellent for cold weather.
Easy to use.
Absolutely none so far.

Hater Sauce v2
New v2.0 formula.
- Lower coefficient of friction compared to the original Hater Sauce. Hater Sauce v2.0 surpasses the "slickness" of any lubricant used in paintball markers today. In most markers, the user can dramatically reduce the LPR pressure of their marker when using Hater Sauce WITHOUT dropoff! Such a reduction in LPR pressure greatly reduces kick of the marker which allows a more stable marker setup.
- Added stabilizers prevent Hater Sauce from hardening even in the harshest conditions.
- New packaging!
- New GREEN color.
- Stays Where You Put It - Hater Sauce does not become runny, which means the user has to lube their markers less often!
- Designed Specifically for the sport of Paintball - Hater Sauce is the only lubricant designed to meet the demands of today’s high performance paintball markers in all climates and conditions.
