The Difference is Clear.
PROKOTE™ rod finish has been tested to be the #1 epoxy. PROKOTE™ has the finest UV inhibitors available in a commercial rod finish. The clarity is unsurpassed by any other finish - period. It remains flexible without staying soft or becoming too hard and cracking. The leveling properties in this finish are 2nd to none while micro bubbles release with ease. In 1,500 hours of weatherometer (WOM) Xenon Arc testing by an independent laboratory, PROKOTE™ Rod Finish proved to be the #1 brand of thread finish epoxy for rod builders. Tests for quality and overall coating performance were performed.
Controlled laboratory testing proved dramatic superiority over the other brands. Tests on PROKOTE™ note an 87% clarity retention compared to the leading manufacturer, while UV Yellowing was the lowest of all brands tested. Laboratory Tests note that PROKOTE™ Rod Building Finish is 207% better at non-yellowing and 187% better at a 60 degree gloss reflectiveness than the leading brand of rod building finish.
Please note: Epoxy finish typically has a 1 year shelf life depending on conditions.

Prokote is by far the best product out there. Easy to mix and apply. Minimal air bubbles which can be removed by the swipe of a small torch. The UV protection is outstanding in this epoxy. I highly recommend it to all rod builders out there.
Ive been using flex coat for years and decided to give Pro Kote a try and I love it, wont use anything else now. Pro Kote applies very nicely . It releases bubbles much better and self levels extremely well and its the most crystal clear finish ive ever found ,what more can i say!
