Well I use Wheelsmith spoke prep. I think it provides good lubrication as well
I have no experience with DT spoke freeze

Ditto to phantomcow. I use spoke prep as well. The DT stuff is hard to find.

Why do you have to choose between Wheelsmith and DT? I've used boiled linseed oil and I liked it much better than either of those two options, especially when re-truing later on.

I've only used Spoke Prep, so I can't pick one over the other.

I use a tiny, tiny bit of white lithium grease. Put a tiny bit on your finger and roll the threads through it depositing only the smallest bit of grease in the threads.
