Hi Jamie,

the AMEL foils are made of one piece and there aren't any nylon bearings Inside (compared to most other manufacturer's foils). The grease put originally Inside the foil is supposed to ease the friction of the foil onto the forestay. It is advisable to replace the grease after 5 years or even earlier if you sail a intensively.
