I just noticed that in 2008 there was a thread on this site about "Heydays Slide". I am curious as to the reason it isn't mentioned in this thread, and if it has turned out to work well on slides?

Nobody's mentioned Heyday's in quite a while.  It used to come from Irv Karan (Slidebone.com).  I can't tell you of a reason it hasn't been mentioned lately except perhaps so few of us use it.

I think that answers my question. The product didn't stand the test. I am starting to recall that I once tried it myself.  : confused

I noticed these days that my trombone slide isn't behaving very well. One oiling can't even keep it smooth for a day. And when it is smooth the slide always sticks in first position and is super slow in the rest of the positions. What should I do


The sticking in first position usually means the collar corks need to be replaced.

I liked it very much when I was still using slide treatments that also used a spray bottle.  But I've moved on to Yamaha Slide Snot and occasionally, Ultra Pure.  I don't use water with either of those.

YMMV (your mileage may vary)
