Rotostay Grease?

Could anybody tell me which grease Rotostay recommended or perhaps suggest a grease to use. Thanks.

Hi
The bottom bearing inside the drum and the top swivel bearing. They are semi-enclosed so can't be done without stripping therefore will probably not be done again till next fore-stay change.

Give Paul a ring at XW Rigging. He has all the rotastay maintenance stuff.

I met Paul this morning when he came to give me a quotation for new rigging for my Centaur. Seems like a pleasant and knowledgeable bloke - is he widely recommended?
(I also have an early Rotostay, which he says his father designed!)
Experience: That which would have been most useful five minutes before you acquired it.
