I usually just use a light oil on the shaft. Grease is kinda heavy and attracts a lot of crap.

+1 on the light oil, like 3n1, fishing reel oil, gun oil, something light. Even silicone spray will do.

make sure any any grease or oil you use is plastic safe. One thats not safe is wd40 it softens plastic. I use Tri Flo oil and a light lithium grease for fishing reels

I use o'lube. It's wax based and dries so that it won't attract dirt. I also use it on gears and the tail pitch slider.
