Best Epoxy for fishing rod

Rate this topic

5 posts in this topic

Could some one let me know what will be the best epoxy for all weather conditions to build rod. I am from India, recently I have given my Penn rod to replace the guides to a friend of mine. Due to current weather conditions its came out sticky and brown in color in most of the guides. He needs to redo the epoxy coating in most of the guides.

So please suggest a best epoxy for all time.

 

Thanks, KK

KK,

Any idea what he used?

The following are finishing epoxies: (they are not epoxy adhesives)

Flex Coat

Threadmaster

Prokote

Threadmaster + Prokote mix (my favourite)

 

There are few others

 

Perhaps your friend used an adhesive or even polyurethane varnish?

Start with fresh stuff. If the epoxy was brown, it means the hardener had aged badly. He may have used the right product but it had turned on him.
