I clean with hopes and lube with G96 which is a clp.

That's how I grew up doing it. I like the smell of G96.

I prefer the separate items. To be fair, CLP does the job, for the most part. At the end of it, I feel a stand alone oil is going to work better.
Additionally, CLP is NOT a substitute for a proper slide grease, IMHO.
Opinions vary of course.

Clp does a good job of removing carbon deposits but its not a standalone. You still need a good bore solvent. I use it as a preservative as well.

what overkill said. i use clp, but then i use hoppes for the bore, a separate oil for the outter frame and metal parts, and a proper slide grease for the slide.
