Is Jigaloo dead?

Guys, I like an exceptionally slippery cube and I'm partial to Zhanchi's, Guhongs, Lingyun II's. Lubix & Maru dominate lube polls with Traxxis 50cc Differential a close 3rd(What I use) Does that mean that Jigaloo is dead or is there still a use for it especially when it comes to Dayan cubes and if so what?

I got tons of silicone oil, but I usually lube my cubes with CRC still, I like the feel the cube gets from it.

Jigaloo isn't available in my country ;-;

I don't use jig-a-loo, never really used it, so I don't know much about it. I do believe, however, that Jig-A-Loo is dead to many people, except maybe to help speed up the breaking in process, as it damages the plastic.

However, I use CRC 808 silicone spray, mainly because I don't have a reason not to. It lasts for quite a while with a 500ml can, and is plastic-safe. This goes to show that just because a lube isn't popular doesn't mean that it isn't useful.

I use jigaloo :p. but that's right before modding a cube, because my blade is dull and can't really cut through reg plastic, so i use jigaloo to make it softer

I still have like half a can of jig-a-loo sitting here, but I would never buy anymore because I feel like it doesnt work as well as the other lubes. Also its kinda messy and harder to apply.

I use Jig-a-loo because it lasts a lot longer than maru lube. I tend to use Jig-a-loo first and then apply maru lube every couple hours or so.

I recommend Jigaloo on the AlphaV, v5, v6, v7
I try other lubes first, then if I'm still unhappy I go with Jigaloo. It's also good for Alpha 1 but I doubt anyone uses those now a days.

Why don't you think it works as well as other lubes?
Personally, I don't think it works well on 3x3's but anything else, amazing.
Jig-a-loo is not even close to messy, if you have the straw, then it applys like a dream.
In some cubes, you don't even need to take a peice out.

I recently got jigaloo, and I like it alot more than CRC personally. I plan to get shock oil soon though. I dont think that jigaloo is dead, theres just alot of other options that work well too.
