What is the best clear coating for lips and bills on crankbaits?

Not sure if it helps, but usually I'll sand them going through the ranges up to 1500 grit.... 600/800/1000/1200 then 1500..... after that, I use Novis plastic polish on a paper towel and can get them pretty much perfectly clear... if the bait has already been painted... leave it alone.... if I then have to paint them, I just dip in whatever final topcoat I use for the paint (mostly DN).

Dick Nite S81 moisture cured urethane has been the best lip coating for me. It's thin, clear, and adheres very well. I think any similar product with the same characteristics would be the same as long as you can dip or spray it.

Thank you both, I've been using 2 Ton Devcon for awhile and looking for a different direction!
