Has anyone ever used this product as a corrosion inhibitor on your fly gear. Kaufman indicates he coats everything but the drag surface with it, including rods, reels etc... in Bonefishing. Anyway have any experience to share?

Yes I've used it on fly reels and it seems to be very protective. It is a very good product for protection and corrosion resistance.

Doesn't move but should...use WD-40
Should move but doesn't...use Duct Tape
Regarding rust/corrosion/oxidation...

Very popular with the Seattle area homies. Especially the saltwater guys. Not for all surfaces as mentioned above, avoid getting on drag etc.

Boeing developed this boeshield grease. It is great. You can either spray a thin layer or wipe it off to get a thin protecting film or spray largely and let it dry to a wax layer for extra protection. As lithium grease, it does not wash away and protects metal for months.
Paul Conover, owner of Old Florida reels who worked in the aircraft industry uses it to protect the bearings of his reels.
