    You are getting personal this morning :Rofl1:

    If you really want to know I do use a bit, but most of it's on the legs of my trousers just below the knee :Doh:

    Thought I would come on here and get a sensible answer...:Wink::BigGrin:

    I was told they should "NOT" be run with grease but run dry..:RollEyes:

    Which seems strange... metal to metal.. :Sad:

    Well done that man! Enjoy your virtual pint on me.

    ( I remembered the lustre to your cluster bit, the hammer glamour escaped me)

    I have a rundry ball.
    tried greasing it once.. by the time I got where I was going it was bone dry again anyway !

    ( and the label fell off my other ball when woman was playing with it so no idea whether to spread some slippery stuff on it or not )

    As a sensible answer, if such is permitted, I always grease mine for the toad but when I had a caravan then it needed to be dry or the stabiliser wouldn't work.

    Dunno about that ... :BigGrin:

    The RunDry is what it is called.. It came with instructions NOT to grease it ( I suspect some folk may have thought my answer was not serious ? )

    The 2nd bit wasn't of course.. Woman never plays with my unlabelled ball but MAy well be improved with the use of nipple ( or indeed nipple clamps )

    Goodness; not sure this is the thread for me? LOL

    But anyway just wanted to 'add helpfully' that every ball I have ever walked into, most especially when wearing my bestest clothes and on the way to a wedding etc, has been greased ........

    Most balls are big enough to spot, how on earth you walk into them is beyond me.
    Only joking Sedge I've walked into several in my life, completely unprotected and made my trousers all greasy and my shins bleed.

    Having said all that, unlike Adolph I don't have even one. My Youngest son leaves his dry so that his snake charmer works, eldest son greases his for the sailing dinghy metal to metal.

    Cracking Topic.....lots of fun.........
