Have any of you baitmakers tried using EX-88? It is made by the same people who make Crystal Sheen and Envirotex Lite. The specs on it seem to indicate that it is harder than either of the other two. The Shen has been my choice so far but I think we all should be open to trying new products. Mark

I have seen this stuff on their site, but I don't know of anyone here that has tried it. It sounds like it should work. Let us know how it goes if you decide to try it.

This coating has excellent adhesion, extremely hard when cured but is more brittle and prone to chip more than envirotex lite or flexcoat. My suggestion is to use envirotex lite. Has flexing properties similar to flex coat and costs less. One coat applied by brush and rotated for 2 to 3 hrs. provides a very durable coating. This product is very reasonably priced when on sale at Menards ($40/gal.)
