If quiet is that important, go with RL cassett, almost silent. Me, I could care less about the sound. My RL is suuuper quiet, and odysee is noisey. I like them both. I ditched free wheels because of all flip flop, 15 and under less durable, ACS, shimano, white drama. I wanna change gearing, it's as easy as replacing the cog.
Dito on the no grease'a the freewheel. Soak it in carb cleaner, then spray it out with carb spray, dry, and fill it up with a good chain lube until it runs out, spin it a few times and viola! If you know someone with an ultrasonic solvent tank, that works even better to get it clean.
