froglube vs seal1

Hey guys 2 quick questions
Which do you think is better?
Do they sell either in a box store yet(like bass pro, gander mtn, cabelas?

Been hearing a ton from you guys about this stuff so i did my research and would like to try it first hand. I adopted hoppes addiction from my father, and i dont change easily. Plus the plan fact that i can smear this stuff on toast and start eatin it to creap out the wife is just a bonus

Good question! I had to buy my Frog Lube online as I haven't seen it anywhere at a store. I love the stuff and it will take quite awhile before my 4oz jar will be used up and I don't know at this point whether to try the Seal 1 later or not. I wonder if it is really an improvement over F.L. or simply hype to get you to spend some more cash.
Like you, I would like to hear from users on whether it is actually better.
The F.L. has sure made my 2022 run like a sewing machine.

Well from what i have heard seal1 was designed by the same guy and may actually be cheaper than FL. Cant say for sure have not bought either yet. If anyone has an easy way to obtain some i would appreciate the input. I have seen FL being sold on amazon but i hate buying anything online. I have not tracked down a website that sells seal1.

I use frog lube on all my guns. Makes cleaning so much easier. They do have dealers but it much easier just ordering from amazon. Amazon is a great company in my opinion.

Re: froglube vs seal1

Today, while searching for ammo and primers, I did run across a police supply store, GB2 Tactical, near Ecorse and Allen Rd. in Allen Park, that sells Frog Lube.

They also had P Mags available, with a unique twist - $40 for a P Mag AND a Tapco mag. I'm good on P Mags so I passed, but I had to bite my tongue. Visions of the Brownells video with Hitler whining about the Tapco's being made of melted Pringles lids kept playing in my mind's eye!

What does Seal1 smell like? I've been using froglube every time after a range visit but the smell is getting on my nerves.

I did not like the idea of a lube that had to be applied to a heated surface to bond with the metal. Sticking to the Hoppes for now. If I could apply it at ambient temps and feel like it would work I would try it. Sounds like FL and Seal 1 are basically the same thing since the same guy created both.

I really like FL, use it on all sorts of things. Have not tried or seen Seal1. FL is available near me at a couple of small LGS and a pawn shop. Also online at Midway and Amazon.

I have been using SEAL1 for a little over three mos now and have found it to be very good to date. I talked with the creator of both products and ha told me S1 is a generation beyond FL. The reason for heating the product on the surface of the gun is to expand all fissures (natural to all metals), in the metal for better penetration/seal. I said when I started this project, I would use it for 6mos before giving my final opinion. I'm about 2.5mos away. So far, I'm pleased.
