Not sure if this is the right place for this

I have a push pole that the finish has worn off and I have black hands for days. My buddy and I were wondering if one of the flexable epoxies reduced down and sprayed on in a couple of fine coats would work? What are your thoughts

PermaGloss or similar is the better bet.

David,
If the PG is compatible and does not react adversely with what is left on you push pole, I certainly agree with Tom; easy, quick curing, reasonably priced, quite durable and no spray gun clean-up.

when I was in the military [ long time ago ] they had A tape, we called F4 tape , [ vulcanizing rubber tape ] once applied water prof , as I know , would that work ?? just a question ??
cost ?? I know it is on the open market , some different colors not a lot , red or black , an it would be soft on your hands also ?
PS the big 5 & 10 store on the web carries it , that begins with "" A """good luck .

David,
Take the pole to a "sand blaster and powder coating facility" and have the pole powder coated. Tough and long lasting finish.

Now I have to figure out how to keep a 22' push pole turning while it drys. Will let you know how it turns out. Might be a week or two. Thanks for the input.

Permagloss cures very quickly. For a fishing rod blank I wipe on a thin coat and then stand it against the wall. You can recoat in 30 min to an hour. A thin coat will not sag. Once cured it is very hard, flexible, durable, and will never yellow. You can wipe it on using something like a cheese cloth pad or another type of lint free applicator like coffee filters, or a foam paint brush. If you miss a spot the next coat will get it. All most fool proof.
