I'm sick of using the Devon 2 ton epoxy. It looks great and seems to be durable but sure is time consuming. What are my other options? I think I would rather dip then brush. I do have a rotisserie if need be for other finishing methods. What are you using and how?

You can give me a call if you want 9404653824

I use direct colors ac1315, I'm not.saying it is the perfect solution. It works very well for me, you will need to reduce paint with pledge floor shine to keep it from wrinkling the paint. I do 3 dips 2-4 hours apart and then let hang for a day before I clean out the eyelets and build up. Some people put in a food dehydrator, but I have never tried that.

Kbs is something i have really wanted to try out, but still have ordered any.

I have been using KBS for a while now. I dip it and hang it for 2 hours then re dip and let it hang for 24 hrs.

I used to use KBS its pretty good stuff. Had a buddy that used it for muskee and pike baits, if it holds up to them sharp teeth it will hold up to bass.

I’ve tried the KBS, I like it. The bubbles form if I try to turn as I would with epoxy. The only complaint I have are the fumes. After dipping the baits squirt some boo then in the container

I received some KBS and so far love it! So I think the directions say to reapply after 8 hours. I've read painters re dipping after 2. I found if I dip the bait then wait 24hrs to repdip, I don't get any bubbles. I did have to destroy the can getting the lid off so have a mason jar handy just in case.

Store KBS in a mason jar With plastic wrap over top then the lid so you can get the lid off again. Be there lol The same with ac 1315 Ole
