    KBS too thin?

    I recently decided to try KBS for the first time after primarily using Dick Nites, I dip mostly but have brushed a few jointed baits that I've done. I have to say I'm not overly impressed with the KBS. I think DN gets harder and over all is a slicker finish. I understand that the major draw to KBS is that it's easier to store but using bloxygen and sealing my dipping jars I would lose very little DN, thanks to the tips I gathered here from guys like Bob P amongst others. To me the superior finish of DN outweighs the loss of DN.

    This reminds me of the old school Rapala foiled lures only better executed in it's details. Very nice work.

    Thanks for the reply, I've done some reading of old threads but those mostly involved application and storage of KBS.

    Not to high jack the thread but, can you find KBS at any of the home improvement stores or do you order it online? I'm a Dick Nites guy but am interested in maybe trying KBS out.

    When prepping a bait that has a good coat of paint I scuff the finish with a Scotch Brite pad until it is uniformly dull, if the paint is damaged then I'll take sandpaper, usually 180 grit or 220, and remove the finish completely. It can be tedious work but good prep leads to a good finish
