Possible New Clear Coat in Hard Baits Posted February 5, 2016 · Report reply Ok guys, I've cleared a bunch more baits and this is the bomb....will never use anything else. I'm hoping that it holds up when its in a hot boat....can't imagine it wouldn't. If you haven't tried this yet, you have too. And I noticed the same thing as someone else above, this stuff is clear, to me it almost magnifies you colors. When I first posted I talked about how it runs pretty good and you'd need a turner for best results. This is what I have found since then. I mix it and let it sit for about 20 min. By this time most of the bubbles will have risen to the top and you can use a heat source to get rid of them. The cool thing is that it gets thicker and it barely starts to set. You still have plenty of working time, I did 20 baits, but its not quite as runny so you don't have to drive yourself crazy turning it, for those of us that do this manually hahaha. Now also I think this is important....I put a pretty heavy coat on first to make sure the baits covered well, then I take my brush and brush off the excess, leaving a thin coat. This also keeps it from running and dripping so much. This will leave you a thin coat which might be ok for a lot of baits. But its very easy to add a second coat and I did this the next day when the first coat is barely tacky. Yeah it takes a few days to cure but who cares haahaha I did 12 baits, put it down and went to pick my kids up at school, came home and did the next 8. I think waiting the 20 min, or longer, to start is key. One pour I didn't wait as long and I did have to battle more bubbles, but they are tiny and I didn't get rid of all of them. Next time I think I'll try letting it sit 10 min, getting rid of the bubbles and waiting another 10 to make sure I get most of them if not all......
