    Dick Nite Lure Coat

    I just finished a great fluke season banging bucktails on the bottom Caught lots of big fluke but the bottom of the bucktail that hit the bottom went back to bare lead. I used a coat of ENVIROTEX Should I use Devcon 2 Would it be stronger or just need multiple coats Thanks Salty Ross
  2. I have been painting my own lead bucktails and have been thinking about using plastic skirt material instead of real bucktail. Anybody have any experience? Better or worse action then hair? Thanks Ross

    A Safer Topcoat-Please help

    Trust me after using etex in the basement for 30 bucktails. Even using a mask/your nostrils get irritated. We need a safe TOPCOAT.Years of doing this will have a negative effect on your health.I am hearing Devcon has no volatile fumes.You guys using it sound like its a better alternative to Etex.These new water based-Is the jury still out.Anyone no more about the component systems product
