What is the best product to use over the magic marble paint on a reel seat?

I use a 2k automotive clear, I've also been trying a 15oz spray can of moisture cured urethane that has been working out good

For a mad-swirl with magic marble on a reel seat, auto clear coat is the best. A 2 part is good, but you'll need to test it out to make sure it does not react with the paint. The ones that go to Mud Hole all have an auto clear shot on them by an auto repair shop and use Magic Marble Paint for the mad-swirl.

On grips, for better depth, etc, I like epoxy 321 at riley rods, but thread finish will also work great. I tried auto clear over grips, along with permagloss, and a few others, but the epoxy321 and thread finish gave the best protection,
