    I have an early model Edgewood rear bag without the new super slick 3M material. What is the current best lubricant to slick up the ears? Baby powder, spray deodorant, powdered carnuba wax? Any help is appreciated.

    The powdered wax works good.

    I tried them all- Used dryer sheets (works well, but hard to keep in place ), bag wax -tried once and by end of match it was acting more like stick-em (like stock was riding on rubber), only ever use baby powder or spray deodorant on leather. Before I switched back to a leather rear bag, I would just clean the cordura with a damp rag and brush it real well. I don't like the 3m on both bags-especially for free recoil.
