21xdc, fishnart might be referring to Diamond 2 epoxy and not KBS. Prior to shutting down their operation, Sylvia @ Bullard Int'l sent me a sample of their Diamond 2 epoxy. After trying it I placed an order and now Etex, which I swore by, finds itself parked on the shelf. D II is just as user-friendly as Etex...maybe even more. considering the "set" time is much less. I can get 4-6 lures coated before I have to thin (depends on temp). After thinning I can usually end up with 10-12 lures with that single 4 tsp batch. Sets hard, smooth and uniform....ready for the KBS. No complaints so far.
Btw, Bullard's brushes are the best quality I've ever used. Not throw-aways here, tho.
