Found this over on another forum. This guy tests 46 different products in several different criteria to see which is the best.

Results of gun care product evaluation - The Firing Line Forums

I have to say this is the most complete and comprehensive test of its kind I've seen to date. The one thing missing - and I have no idea how a hobbyist would accomplish it - is a test of how well the lube handles the heat, pressure, and velocity (think slide movement on a semi-auto) of a firearm.

I must say it is making me re-evaluate my choice of lube for my firearms. Some of you may recall I've largely dismissed the claims made for Frog Lube as marketing hype and anecdotal stories. However, this test clearly demonstrates actual evidence of its performance. I'll be giving it my own evaluation to see if the migration and related issues like gumming up over time I've heard about are true, and depending on those results I may have found a new lube for my firearms.

Wow, what a great test (and understanding wife). I am both horrified and pleased. I have to go clean my guns again, and get some Frog Lube and that WD-40 Specialist stuff.

This was one of the biggest reasons I've been using frog lube. I debated on it for awhile and this really convinced me of its power as a lubricant.

It's pretty funny to read the comments of people who believe motor oil is equally effective.

I recently started to use Frog Lube. Maybe I should spray my guns with salt water:rolleyes:
That's not what they mean by "seasoning" ! :lol:

I've been using FIREClean. Wish he would have used it in his tests. I've seen it do just as well as Frog Lube in other tests but would have loved even more confirmation (although I'll definitely be checking out OneShot now as well).

This evaluation made me buy some wd40 specialist. I like it a lot. Very good test.

Ok... I currently use FireClean with no complaints and have 2 unopened bottles. If I ever run out I think I may try froglube at that point. Till then, I wonder if anyone has seen a test similar to this using FireClean?

After reading that test comparison I am convinced to dump the Hoppes elite and get some Frog Lube.
Is the paste the most common form to use on our XD pistols and other firearms? How do you apply the paste to the slide rail channel?
Frog lubes site seems to lack instructions online. Is the liquid a better choice? The paste seems to be the most available/ marketed
