U-40 Perma Gloss is the ultimate one-part urethane rod finish for those requiring a water clear, non-yellowing finish that is so durable it will outlast the rod itself. The perfect finish for fly rods where a large bulky buildup on the rod windings is objectionable, or for any rod subject to constant sun and weather. An excellent coating for wood reel seats. Available in 1 and 4 oz. sizes.

Great Finish, IF handled correctly!!

Reviewer: A viewer from Heber, UT US

This finish is terrific, I use it mainly for feather inlays, and I put a few coats on my guide wraps before the Epoxy. I only gave it 3 stars because it is "activated" by air. So you have to be VERY careful not to leave the bottle open but only for a short time!!! If it is left open to long, or the cap/lid isnt put on tight the finish will dry in the bottle Quick!!! I learned this the hard way!! My first time using it on a build, I ended up buying 3 bottles for 1 single Rod build! 1 bottle will do several rods, but it has to be kept air tight!! Other than that this finish is awesome!! Works for "sealing" feather inlays, putting a few coats on guide wraps before epoxy will seal the wrap and "lock" the thread in place. And you can even wipe it on an entire "flat finish" blank to give it a "Glossy" finish!!

I learned the hard way!

Reviewer: A viewer from Mishawaka, IN US

The product itself is fantastic, but keep in mind, it becomes hard when exposed to air. Even for about 10 minutes at a time, i still caught it beginning to set up. Once I got it on the rod though it worked great and worked well as a low- building finish.

excellent stuff easy to use

Reviewer: A viewer from Nampa, ID US

I have found this product to be very easy to use and seals the wraps on my rods very well. If you don't want a huge buildup of finish on your wraps but want them to be sealed this is the stuff. I put 5-10 coats on and it drys very fast and puts a shine like no other. The best part is no mixing needed just use straight out of the bottle.

Hard as Nails

Reviewer: A viewer from Free Union, VA US

This finish dries incredibly hard. Doesn't darken the thread color either. Be sure to store properly or else it will harden. Dries very quickly as well.

Great except for the cap

Reviewer: A viewer from Pittsburgh, PA US

This product works exactly as it says it does. It crates a beautiful clear glossy finish. However, I did have a problem with the cap on the bottle. It cracked in half after my second application. The directions recommend placing the product in an airtight container and storing it in a refrigerator and knowing this I simply grabbed a mason jar and the product kept fine. I would definately use this again but will pour it into another container first.
