    I caught wind of this earlier today. I'm wondering if I need to purchase any. What do you think? Looks like the real deal. Wind Grease? See attached photo of the product pic.

    I knew you could grease lightning. And break the wind. But I sure didn’t know you could grease the wind.

    The only thing that makes me go faster is “step lightly”. Let the younguns figure that out!!

    Edit my mistake it’s go lightly. But be sure and step lightly after taking it!!

    I always thought the name was a practical joke. There isn't anything "Lightly" about going with that stuff.

    As for the wind grease, I've used it. You have to use it sparingly or the results can be dangerous. Just put a little on the leading edge of your sails. I would recommend just the head sail first to see the results.

    Be sure to use the synthetic mix if you have laminate sails and carbon fiber appendages.

    You can read about the leading lead-free wind-up wind instrument tube of lube they're selling there, on sale, for their sails that I read is red to wear better where wind and water wells flare with flair while fairs fare well too.

    Greased lightning used to be a term for about anything to include moon shine. I would look into other products as well but sparingly as preciously mentioned.
