Default Re: Coating with e-tex

Flexcoat tends to yellow quite a bit and do it fairly quickly.
After it ages for a few years the shock of bouncing it off a rock makes it crack and peel, much more then Etex

If you get the Etex using one of those 40% off coupons from the big box craft stores, it's much cheaper then Flexcoat - also works great for rod building. Goes on clearer and stays clearer. I've done a number of rods with Etex and although Threadmaster is my favorite, If I'm out of that I'll go to Etex without hesitation before using Flexcoat.
