I am looking for right grease and oil for my reels.

Grease: for Gear and clutch, shaft and springs (not for cork drag)
Oil: for ball bearings

I am thinking of buying followings.

Grease: for conventional Penn Reels(Used to be called "X1R").

Oil: Ardent Reel Butter Bearing Lube

Are those right choices?

My little concern for Penn's grease is its color is not white, maybe dark blue or something like that.

As for grease for a cork drag, it seems "Lubriplate B-105" + graphite powder is the way to go.
But I found 2 "105" on their web and not sure which one I should buy.

B-105 Calcium Grease

105 Motor Assembly Grease:

Judging from the Archives on this board, "B-105" may be the right one?
