Is drag grease different from reel grease?

I believe you are supposed to use teflon based grease for carbon fiber drags. Shimano drag grease or Cals drag grease(cheaper than shimano's). That is what Alan Tani suggests, and uses himself. Other than that, I don't know if reagular grease would work the same or be useless/harmful. The drag grease might have a higher temperature tolerance, or it could simply be a gimmick. Good question though. If you look, there is some good info on reel maintnence. Especially on bearings and drags. If you can't find it here, check out the reel maintnence board at the Striper'sOnline forum(Alan's info is in a sticky at the top).

Good stuff. What am I talking about? Great stuff! Maybe some of Alans work can be added to the resources section(which is kinda of hidden I might add). Maybe some additional links could be added to the menu, especially to the resource section? Just a thought.
