I’ve been siliconing my own throws for a few years now, and next to the CLYW snow tires I haven’t experienced a better response system for my personal preference. However, I have only ever used the clear flowable silicone, I know that there’s a history and preference for red flowable by many players who came up in the same era as myself.
Is anyone able to explain the difference in the two for me?
I’ve used both a couple times. Anything other than flowable is a nightmare to use, not worth the effort or time.
I’ve only ever used the clear silicone Bradd included with the Circle City Warhawk. I did the silicone on 4 of them, i had Bradd do the 5th for me as an example so I knew what it should look/feel like. I absolutely love that response, and it was pretty easy to do even as a newbie.
From what he told me, the red is slippier and harder to work with, but I haven’t done it myself. All I know is, I had a great experience with the clear stuff.
Not sure if there’s a difference with different brands, but this is the tube I used:
