First of all it is very sticky. This is a double edged sword. This means that handling it is tricky but it also means that one can more readily ensure a certain surface is fully coated with a thin layer. This is in contrast to packing then spinning to push out excess of placing several "blobs" and relying on motion of the part to gradually spread the grease.
Secondly it has an extremely smooth texture. This means that, if you apply it suitably thinly, there is very little in the way of "break in period". This means that if well applied your bearings will be rolling optimally in short order.
Thirdly comes resistance to dirt. Despite the sticky surface (which does attract dust) it doesn't seem any worse than any other grease I've tried in unfavourable conditions. That means that any dirt that reaches the lubricated surfaces will eventually cause problems but some such dirt touching lubricant away from the surface should not be problematic.
Forth comes the container. This is the only real problem here. I purchased this grease along with the Finish Line Grease Injection Gun and initially this worked great. It allowed for delicate application and reduced the mess caused by the sticky texture. The problem I had, however, was after a few uses the neck of the contained snapped and I was left with a tube without a screw thread (that could no longer take a cap or grease gun). It's hard to say whether this is the fault of the gun or the tube but in either case it is frustrating.
Overall this grease met my needs and, barring the problem when used with the grease gun, it seems to work well.
One additional piece of advice. Lay the grease on thick. It's not that expensive and you can clean up any excess that squeeze out. By laying it on thick your going to improve the protection aspect and extend the time between services. Also, as some other reviewers have mentioned your greased components can be a little stiff or sluggish initially. Once the grease gets settled in and smoothed out things will improve so don't worry!
