3 5 slip but squeaky

tried these in the red version because it seemed a good idea/improvement (better grip and less wear) over the regular version keos but they squeak annoyingly when there is a little water/moisture present between the cleat and the pedal contact area. Going back to the regular version keo because of this issue and plus they cost more than the regular version keo.

Found a good way to deal with the wounded duck squeak for these -- Use an old candle, or surf wax, rub some directly onto the metal area/plate of the pedal, and whalah! No creaks!! Will have to re-apply about once/month; but works well :)

I had the same squeaking problem and also went back to the regular version keo. I appreciate Carter's suggestions, but don't want to pay $10 more and then have to apply wax every month.
