Why was I scared?
Reviewer: A viewer from JACKSON, WY USA
It was the first rod I built and I was worried about making it look good. I applied the fc high build wrap finish after carefully measuring the correct amount of resin and hardener. I placed the rod in the rod dryer and started the spinning as I brushed the finish on. The following morning I rushed to see the results and it was a clear beautiful finish. I you've it to refinish old rods and every time the result it the same. WOW

The high build product came in a finishing kit that I bought on this site and I have now used it to build 2 rods. I have enough left to build several more. The product works excellent, but I have found that it works even better when thinning it slightly with denatured alcohol. Mix the epoxy first then add a small amount of denatured alcohol.
Crystal Clear strong adhesive

I use a Sage rod that was a gift in 1982. Due to the age some threads were unwrapping so I used Flex Coat to keep them in place. It is easy to mix and be sure to use exact measurements of resin and hardener. My home is about 70 degrees and the epoxy dried to touch in about two hours. I placed the rod on a spin motor with 8rpm and left it till the morning. The first thing I did after waking was run downstairs to check the epoxy and it dried evenly and was crystal clear. It looked like water and the thread remained the same color. I was as happy as a puppy with a new toy.
Great thick single coat finish every time

I have used both the High Build and Lite on my newer rods with good results. (2007 to the present) This is the finish for you if you want a thick coat in a single application. I have never had a problem mixing it but I recommend the syringes to make sure you get accurate 50/50 portions. Long lasting. I recently retired 4 fly rods that I built up with Flex Coat in 1985 and the finishes are still good, with no yellowing or cracking. Back then there was only one version of Flex Coat, the thick one. My personal preference now is a thinner finish. The thick finish is just to show off and adds extra weight to the rod. Two coats of the Lite is just right and I can easily do two rods at a time.
First Time 2 Part Finish User

Being skeptical at first soon found it easy. The enclosed syringes make exact mixing a snap. A little time spent turning the blank after application results in a great bubble free finish. One time application did it for me. Beats the old varnish method.
