I coated my wraps today on a replacement for my favorite rod, and they are crap. I usually use 5-minute epoxy, but it's expensive and stressful, mixing three or four times to coat a rod, so I gave this stuff a try. It claims to be a one coat epoxy, but when it set the wrap ends are exposed, and the middle was too thick.
Now, I'm no expert. I don't think I overcoated... on the contrary, some of the wraps need a second coat. The wrap next to the tiptop is especially bad. What's the trick to this stuff? My rod turner goes 5 rpm.
I'm going back to the 5 minute stuff. Even when I do a bad job it looks better than the U-40.
