I think most "dippers" use some type of polyurethane, either regular or moisture cured poly such as Dick Nite Fishermun's Lurecoat. I dip most of my lures in Dick Nite and like it for its thin durable coating, which is ideal for repainted plastic baits or wood baits with a good smooth paint on them. Nothing is perfect however. Moisture cured polys are touchy about how they are stored and applied. But putting a topcoat on a lure takes 30 seconds vs mixing and brushing epoxy, or spraying and cleanup for auto clears. Do a search on Dick Nite for lots more specific info.
