Unhappy Type of lube to use on the nt

I first played with the new nt this weekend, put about three box of paint through the gun and it was shooting great the whole day. After the day was all done got home and cleaned the gun up and relubed the bolt with sleek lube aired up the gun and tried to dry fire but the bolt seem to get stuck and will not shoot at all. Am I using the wrong lube or not enough. When pulling the trigger I can hear the noid clicking so that tells me that there is nothing wrong with noid, has anybody had this problem before? Need help soon going to play this weekend, when the gun is working it shoots great.

Check that you didn't somehow damage an o-ring, or forget to lube/change out a few. Sleek should work, but Slick Honey and a few others (Monkey Poo, Marmalade, and Voltage come to mind) will do better.

Have you used all those lubes on your NT?

DYE slick lube, dow33.
hater sauce isnt recommended on our markers due to excessive swelling it causes on the o rings. Slick Honey is too liquid and causes some problems in the internals of the markers. (i used to use slick honey on my dm5 in 2006, but better lube has come along that works longer, cleaner and more efficiently)
check your dwell, make sure it is set at 6, also be aware that some of the early NT's have a asa problem that depresses the pin on your tank to the point that it RESTRICTS air. We will be happy to fix this problem for your marker if you have it.
fresh batteries in all our markers are always well advised

Is Hater Sauce not recommended on ALL Dye markers? Or just the NT? I've been using it on my PM8 and DM9 and didn't seem to notice any swelling issues....how do you feel about Hater Marmalade?

Also on the lube issue, whoever lubes these things from the factory sure likes to go overboard lol. I always thought you are supposed to lube until the o-ring is shiny but not until u start seeing excess lube...but the marker came to me with a lot of lube. No problems shooting it but I just thought it seemed to be a bit excessive cuz it looks like it could cake up.

I dont think its the asa because this one i got comes in a new gun case and i just got it last friday in Corona. One more thing that i have to check is the dwell setting, thanks DyeTech2 im glad that you mention that, i will let you guys know if thats the problem.Thank you guys that replied back.

I can personally vouch for monkey poo. My DM6 was having bolt stick issues as well and this eliminated all problems I was having. I now use this on my DM6 and Luxe and it's amazing stuff, oring monkey sells it if you're at all interested. seriously worth the money.

What kind lube of does anyone use on their new nt. What I have tried so far is sleek by smart part and monkey poo, these two brand works great. Has anyone used something different and works great for them?
