    Seal lube (Cheaper than Jollop, less hassle to buy than KY)

    Ok, i have been using O3 Jollop for the last year (And good it is too) but my bottle was running out so i sought a cheaper and less conspicuous alternative.

    I came up with this.



    I have it on good authority (From the person that formulated Jollop) that this is essentially the same thing. There is a little added antiseptic but that's about it. The company that makes the Agri-Gel is the same company that makes Jollop for O3.

    So how much is it? Well i bought a 500ml bottle (The smallest in the picture) for about 2.95 Jollop is not all that expensive but it's about 5 for a much smaller bottle. Something like 250ml so it's almost 4 times more expensive.

    That isn't for seals, sealions or other cute marine mammals, that's for cows' lady gardens :D

    Or sheeps', if that is your preference.

    But, it is what Helen has sworn by for a long time, I believe, so it does have a track record. Where did you get it from?

    I got it from a farm supply shop (Near my girlfriends parents) called Countrywide Farmers. Any place that sells horse type things should be able to get hold of it.

    I think Net-Tex even sell direct but you'll then lose out due to post and packing.

    *Ahem* Care to discuss what exactly you've been using O3 Jollop for for the last year - you only got a drysuit a week ago?

    works a treat on the wrists of my O'Three semi-dry. It's an ass to get on without it.

    Round 'ere boy it's a damn sight less embarassing to buy vet lube than asking for a large size in KY
