Hey guys whenever I run my dm in >35 degrees fahrenheit it starts to hickup (has fsdo issues). Even with raising the dell by 3 and lubing. I use standard hatersauce. In the warm weather it shoots great! but I was talking with a guy at the field who has a dm and he said that he was running cold weather settings, but I couldnt find him later to ask him what they were.

People have sworn by slick honey for Matrixes for nearly a decade.

It was originally a lube for bikes, so check a local bike shop for it.

I run at 22 in the summer, 24 in the winter. The matrix line has a sealed firing chamber so going too high isnt really a problem. It also lets me lower my lpr. I never have a problem, even in the winter.

I water my slick honey down with synthetic pb oil, but dow33 is actually pretty stable even in the cold. Dm's can handle a decent amount of overlubing in the summer, but be very sparing below 45degrees. You really just want the o-rings wet in the winter.
Add 2-5 ms dwell depending on the board and a half turn on the lpr is usually necessary.

I'd rather use dow33 over straight slick honey for cold weather. Mine (honey) was mixed with synthetic pb oil with ptfe many many years ago so it's all I've ever needed on 30 spool markers year round.
I have been using lurker lube lately and like it just as well as my honey mix.
