Hey Chris,

Just finished my second rod (first was about a year ago and a disaster) and used the new Dura Gloss LS Supreme. Pretty sweet stuff for a rookie like me. I used flex coat last time and it probably reflects my newness to rod building but I had the thick stuff and had trouble.

No trouble though this time. I used a very thin coat for the first coat , just enough to saturate the wraps. Then went back through and put on a thicker coat and the wraps look pretty damn good. No bubbles and very easy to mix and brush on the wraps. Also has about a 40 minute pot life so you can actually get a couple sections done no problem.

Anyway thought I would let you know how it worked for me. Two thumbs up!
