Any recommendations for a particular type of grease for repacking bearings.  I have in the past used Phil wood grease but finding it a little too thin.

Suggestions?

I tried all the bike stuff, Phil, the white stuff... spider-shit?  Can't remember it's name.

Now I just use the marine grade tubes you get at any Lordco or wherever and haven't noticed a difference.

(Still have a tub of slickoleum or nutbutter or whatever the fuck it's called for when I change the oil in my lowers)

Rock N Roll Superweb grease is the stuff Reductimat is talking about.  Ive use it on all my bearings for a number of years and it works well.  It kind of has a stringy property to it (thus the 'superweb' term) that seems to stick well in the bearing races, but isnt too thick.

Superweb is great, it rolls super fast and being white you can tell when it's contaminated and time to repack.
