Prokote high build and Prokote Original combo

Hi guys,

Does anyone have experience with using prokote high build and original together? Say Original for first coat and thread penertraition then high build as build coats? Or does anyone mix them together?

I build heavy duty Topwater and Jigging rods (GT, Dogtooth tuna etc) Normally apply 4 coats of original. While this works a treat Im hoping to reduce wastage and time. Thinking I could get away with 1 coat of original, 1 coat of high build then 1 finish coat of original.

Is the cured flexibility the same in both ? Prokote original is tried and tested on my rods with no cracking and non yellowing, holds up to brute fish. Don't want to mess with it but if they work together Id consider it.

Cheers

You will have no problem putting the high build prokote over the original prokote. I do it all the time. They stick to each other just fine.

I personally mix prokote original with @#$%&. Prokote lays down beautifully, but cures a bit soft. The addition of @#$%& really hardens it up, and speeds up drying time. Play around with different mixes and see what you like.

Not sure why it bleeped it out, this forum has a strange layout compared to others, but the wealth of information on here is unmatched.

I was trying to type diamond two by @#$%& rods. Let’s see if that doesn’t get blocked.

Chris I think it does that if the company that you mentioned isn't a sponsor of this page.
