I build alot of RodGeeks 100mmf2 and fish with them alot in the surf throwing hopkins or cut bait. These blanks were supposedly built on old St Croix mandrals from the days of the Ben Doerr series. I really like this series blanks.

I transport my surf rods to the coast in two pocket chamios bags in the camper topper. This protects against rubbing and chaffing. I have seen people running 75 mph on the way home with their rods still in the cooler racks, with rigs still attached. road dust and grime driven by high speeed gets inside those expensive reels that we only wish we could by "on sale"

I am rebuilding a G.Loomis surf rod and need to repaint the blank with flat black paint to cover up original paint scratches. I want to cover this paint with U-40 perma gloss. I tried Krylon on an old blank, let dry 24 hrs, then applied U-40, but the paint then dissolved and rubbed off. Any ideas on which paint to use?
