"Solder would just have their [sic] own indentations"

So you're confident in saying that the solder is subject to microscopic porosity, but that the grease is not?

I would be more inclined to believe the solder would provide the more air tight joint, if soldered correctly. But Coner's "dab on top of the clips" wouldn't constitute correct soldering methodology.

The issue with the solder would be having to unsolder and remove the fuse from the fuse clip in the event of a failure. Sounds like a major pain in the ass. I'd like to try the silver grease though.

There are fuses made with leads, primarily for use on circuit boards. No telling how they'd perform. My only experience with fuse tweaking was trying a few recommendations made here on Tweakers Asylum. I wrapped the glass body in Teflon plumber's tape, and cleaned the end contacts with DeOxit. No change from a naked, dirty fuse. I flipped it for gits 'n shiggles to test directionality, but detected no sonic change.

I try and keep an open mind about things, but I guess I'm too much of a skeptic to spend $100 on a disposable fuse "Just to see".
