Lube for servo gears

I am putting metal gears in some HS-85 servo's. What should I use for lube on the gears?

I have always used the white grease they sell to lube fishing reels. A couple of bucks at the local WalMart lasts a long time. It comes in a nice little squeeze tube usually with a plastic needle like tip.

Probably the same stuff, but a lifetime's supply in a spray can from home depot for $4 or so - White Lithium grease..

I've always like Finishline products for small fiddly stuff. Low friction bicycle lubricants, big price though.
