What’s green and minty and goes on guns?
Froglube CLP Review
(Author’s Note: This review was originally written for my own website in December of 2012. When I was invited to start writing for We Like Shooting, I thought this would be a good start, since I still feel as strongly about it now as I did back then.)
Over the last few months, I’ve gotten several emails asking me if I’d ever used FrogLube. At the time, the only response I could give was in the negative, because I hadn’t. But eventually, I got enough requests for a review that I decided I should give it a shot.
So I called the fine folks at FrogLube, and they were kind enough to send me out some samples of their product.
Boy, what a product it is.
For those of you who aren’t aware, FrogLube is a plant-based, non-toxic, non-petroleum, non-flammable, biodegradable, American made cleaning, lubricating, and protecting product for firearms. Oh, and it’s also USDA Certified Biobased, and FDA certified food grade.
Oh, and it smells awesome.
But, does it work?
Hell yes it works.
But it only works if you follow the damn instructions for application. As long as you can do that, I think you’ll find, like I did, that it is the greatest gun cleaner/lube to have ever been brought to market. It’s not the first plant-based CLP, and it’s not the last. But the difference between this one and others I’ve tried is that it actually works. And it doesn’t just work, it works exceedingly well.
I’ve tried just about every CLP product on the market. I love trying new stuff. But what has always happened in the past is that I try something new a couple or three times, find it doesn’t work as well as my old friend Hoppes, and just go back to that.
As long as they keep making this stuff, and as long as they don’t change the formula, and as long as it keeps working, I’ll keep using FrogLube.
It really is just that good.
And no, I’m not a paid spokesman, but I damn well would be if they asked. They wouldn’t even have to pay me a lot.
