Bike tire epoxy

I am going to make a few hinged baits and I wanted to use a topcoat that would be more prone to flex than crack. I remember reading an article in "field and stream" or "in-fisherman" about using a bike tire epoxy combo to seal lures. My question is if anyone has used bike tire epoxy with any success?

i dont know about bike tire epoxy, but if you want a epoxy that can flex, there is flex coat. I use flex coat when i make fishing poles, for coating the thread on the eyelets.

Years ago, I used Crystal Sheen for coating rod wraps.

Any decopage epoxy will be flexible, because it has to be able to adhere to large wood area which expand and contract.

Flex Coat will work if you don't mind your bait turning yellow! IMO Flex Coat is junk for baits and rods unless it is going over a dark bait or dark wraps. If you want to use a rod building epoxy, use Threadmaster. It is far superior...especially when it comes to yellowing.
