Flexcoat rod builders epoxy for clearcoat?

5 posts in this topic

Has anyone used this product for crankbait clearcoating? 20 min. potlife sounds good for working time. Full strength in 2 hours-then I assume less than 2 hours turn time. Typical concerns are toughness, yellowing, smoothness/evenness, more than 1 coat needed?

There are differing opinions on flexcoat (nothing unusual there). This link was the last discussion, three weeks ago. http://www.tackleunderground.com/forum/hard-baits/15728-alternative-clear-coats.html

If you do an advanced search on flexcoat and select the hardbaits forum, there are 41 more threads to read.

Toughness and yellowing seem to be the main concerns, but lots of members swear by it.

madbass, I've done a couple of baits with the flex coat epoxy and I was not that pleased with the results. It was not as clear as the high build rod finish. I use it to coat over my sealer and so far it works fine for that application.
