Timely info on the grease. Thanks. I was just replacing my cassette tonight. I have some red grease to throw in. I have only been using waterproof grease and Slickoleum for my various bike bits, but will gladly try this. I’ve only used it for mower spindles thus far.
Be careful there. Grease that's too heavy can cause Free hub pawls to stick and possibly not engage properly. This happened to a friend of mine in the winter when the low temperature made the problem worse. I'm not too particular about grease for most applications, but for freehubs I get the proper stuff. Dumondetech is highly recommended.
I used the Dumondetech on the pawls and seal, red grease in the cheap bearing only. Waterproof grease on the endcap seal. The hub was clean inside, but the bearing was in need of some grease for certain. We will now see how long this bearing lasts with some minor attention.
