    Hi,

    Can anyone specify the brand of silicone spray used on leg guards to ensure that they slide on the astro please?

    Don't want to get the wrong one and degrade my pads!

    Thanks!

    I just asked the same question on a different thread. 3 in 1 brand silicone spray (I've got some on the way). If you don't need loads of slide, I've found the car dash shine sponges do quite well (you also can't accidentally put loads on). I've been quite happy with the sponge but found on my new home pitch that it is super grippy so will experiment with emptying half a can on my leg guards and hope I don't slide all the way to the halfway line......

    I use Halfords own brand silicon spray on dry pitches - quick spray down each side and it all slides a treat. Pads are still fine.

    I used silicon spray on my OBO HiRB a few years ago for training on a sticky(underwatered) water based for training. Our next match was on a rather slippery well watered pitch. I was like bambi on ice try to get back up. had to scrub the pads with soap during half time.
    be careful how much you use!

    I've heard dimilar stories from others so will be cautious. I do have fists of ham though so expect a bearded bambi to make an appearance soon.....

    it would have been quite comical had it not been a league game.
    luckily no goals were conceded during that half

    Yep, quick squirt down each side is all that's needed. I'm using Obo HR as well. It's very rare I find any residue the next time, but yes, there has been the odd occasion where the next session is on a wet pitch and the first slide has been... interesting!

    I have the Mercian Extreme pads so I'm expecting that I will need a reasonable amount to ensure I slide! Any particular brands? I've noted the Halfords one. Thanks!
