hey guys i just had a quick question what kind of epoxy do you use for coating the guide wraps and also the thread art by the grips? I have been looking on mudhole and they have like a finish and also a rod builders epoxy can anyone shed some light for me.
I have Flex-Coat... use it on all thread work. you need to have a dryer or something (cordless drill) to turn the rod whilst it dries to make a nice even round coat of fishish. you also might try U40 perma gloss.. I haven't tried that yet.................JJ
Actually they are both epoxys. You use a five minute for the handles, seats etc, and then there is a 4 hour epoxy for the guides and wraps. Use a cordless drill or the 18 rpm drying motor to turn the rod after application. Use a heat gun to heat the epoxy to bring the bubble to the top. There are a couple of good streaming videos on mudhole of you have a high speed connection. Brows around until you find them. The guys shows you real quick how to tie an eye and apply epoxy.
