Finish question???

5 posts in this topic

Which finish will hold up better, Devcon or Flex Coat? I am also a rod builder so I have plenty of both, I just want to coat with the best one.

Thanks,

Noel

I use both but mostly Devcon because the Flexcoat takes longer to cure. Either does a good job but In my experience, the Devcon stays clear and unyellowed longer on the crank. Sometimes, I use a rod epoxy when I want to add minimal weight like re-clearcoating a suspending crankbait. But you can also thin Devcon with lacquer thinner to get a thin coating (remembering that epoxy thinned with a solvent can smear solvent based colors on the bait).

NSpann,

so a search on TU for devcon, flex coat, clear coats and you'll find a slew of information on the advantages and disadvantages!
