Axe poppet maintenance interval?

Ran an Axe pro for 3/4 of the last season. Cleaned and lubed the bolt and bolt guide after each day of play. I never once touched the poppet. I didn't have any issues. So my question is how often should I clean and lube the poppet? Anyone have an estimate based on number of cases, time, etc? Thanks

I'd clean and lube the poppet and poppet bore of the bolt guide every 5 cases or so.

Cleaning and lubing the poppet is nearly as important as the bolt since it directly affects the velocity and consistency. I do it after every day of play which is typically around 2 cases.

Don't bother with polishing it. I don't know who came up with that idea but it's kinda silly.
