Hydrophobic formula forces water away to prevent corrosion and structural breakdown. Quantum® Hot Sauce™ Reel Grease will not deteriorate due to heat and wear. This reel grease is formulated with super-low friction polymers that bond to all metal parts to ensure optimum performance for the life of your fishing reel.
i use this on my reels and the sauce allows my reels to cast fast and far only drawback is the oil wears out faster then normal reel oils, also when water get to the oild the oil will gunk up and loose its affectiveness.

Been using it for years
You may think it's expensive, but it goes a long way. You don't need much in a real. Everyone here noted everything worthwhile mentioning. Pair this up with the oil and you're all set. I love the oil for squeaky handles...

This grease is good quality and seems to resist washout better than other greases I've used. The color makes it easy to see but did bleed color out on a white colored reel I own although I have not experienced this problem with any of my other reels.
I continue to use this grease on all of my reels and it works as well as any grease I have used.

I purchased the quantum hot sauce for the first time recently. I find this product to be top notch. It makes it easy to see where the oil, or grease is because of the red color. I would recommend this to anyone. It is relatively expensive though, but I'm sure it'll last a long time as well. I view it as a good investment, given the cost of my quantum reels.

Oil should be used for bearings, whereas grease is used for gears. Do not mix the two, and do not put oil on the gears, as it will not provide the same protection. Grease will help protect your bearings from water, which can begin to rust the bearings.
The grease is better for moving parts like gears that have more contact with each other and move slower. The oil is better for bearings and spool shafts beacuse they need to be able to spin freely and have minimal drag on them for better performance.
Your reel has places that need a light lubricant, which would be oil, and other areas that require grease. This product would be used where the gease is to be used. I would take a look at your owners manual which shows both,online to manufactuers site, or take it to your local sporting goods store to show you which goes where.
The grease is used to pack around the gears if you fish fresh water you can go six months or more before you need to regrease the gears, salt water every month or two. All of this is based on how much you fish. The oil is for the bearings go light on the oil. Too much oil will cause drag, and will leak out of your real making it tough to hang on to.
Make sure that the grease is used only on the main gear and the worm gear. Apply it sparingly as it does not take much. Use oil on all bearings and apply sparingly also. Just a drop will go a long way.
Use grease on the gears,it's thick so it wont runoff the gears when you turn the handle! Use the oil on the bearings and the spool shaft, it's lighter, it will not slow the action of the bearing and is a lot easier to lube bearings whit the oil than with grease!
