I know some use a brush to clear coat and some an airbrushing. What gun / clear  do you recommend? Any tips? New to it never sprayed/airbrushed clear coat. Thank you all.  (On big glide/multi joint baits)

Be VERY CAREFUL if you spray any flammable products. The atomized product becomes a mass of fumes that can EXPLODE when going through an exhaust fan. Plus the brush or gun will most likely be short lived if you don't clean 100% each time...  I think you get a better job/coverage when dipped or brushed.

2X what 21xdc said. I sprayed clear coat and never will again, dipping is better and safer. Make sure if you chose too, get  a sealed motor and a good respirator. Just cleaning the gun is bad enough.

If you are going to build an exhaust system for volatile fumes, be sure to get and explosion proof exhaust fan.  Those are the specific words to look for:  explosion proof.
