As you said there is no such thing as a completely risk free punt. All anyone can do is reduce the risks as they personally see fit.
Just thought it appeared as if I was being reckless with regard to safety precautions and nothing is further from the truth.
I thought I made it clear I that I didnt like "excessive" lube "surplus" to requirement etc.
The requirement being safety as that's the only purpose of the lube.
Thats not the same as NO lube or minimal lube that doesn't offer safety.
My statement is no more lube than necessary...once its safe (as safe as any punt can be)...its safe....RIGHT
Think I may have been misunderstood .....not that it matters as we are all strangers :-)
