I have used parafin wax with satisfactory results. Place your bow in the sun and allow it to warm up. The wax will spread more easily if the rail surface is warm. I wax my string and serving with the same wax. The parafin wax costs pennies.

If you are talking about lubing the rail on your excalibur, IMO you really do not need to. ;)

On my exomag the wax from the serving keeps my rail lubed plenty and sometimes I remove the excess as it tends to build up. :)

If you watch the videos on the excal site if may discuss lubing the rail :)
