All-New High-Build Formula
PROKÖTE™ is proud to announce the arrival of its new High Build Formula. PROKÖTE™ High Build features the unparalled UV protection, superior clarity and easy leveling that made PROKÖTE™ the leader in rod finishes but in a 25% thicker formula and offers 25% faster drying time.
For Rod Builders, by Rod Builders
Experienced rod builders know what they want in a rod finish: extended working time, easy leveling, good bubble release, thread saturation, ultimate clarity and protection from UV yellowing. PROKOTE™ answers these needs while providing the industry's first medium build epoxy.
Each kit includes mixing & application instructions, and smaller kits (2-8oz) also include a set of free 3cc color-coded syringes & color coded yorker caps.
Note: the volume listed is the total volume of both hardener and resin. For example: when ordering PK-2, that features (2) 1oz. bottles to make approximately 2oz. of prepared finish.
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.

I'm a repeat customer puttiing together a long order for a new fly rod after a 3 yr COVID haitus, but am discouraged to see my costs escalate because MudHole is no longer offering 2 oz sizes of ProPaste and ProCoat. You probably know these have a limited shelf life and if not used for another rod for 2-3 yrs need to be completely replaced. It would be considerate to see you offer 'special order' 2oz versions for single rod projects, or, discount the 4 oz when accompanied with a blank order.
I used this finish on my white MHX 7' light power spinning rod. In less than 1 season, the finish yellowed badly on the decorative wrap. This is probably exaggerated by the pure white rod blank, but I have noticed it yellowing over the silver trim wraps on my other builds from the past 2 years as well. My rods are stored neatly on pegboard in my garage and are very well cared for. Wish I had stuck with FlexCoat that I have trusted for the past 25yrs!!!
Great product, used for years. This product is thick, but again use thin coats. If you have bubbles use some heat which does thin a little, but great product. This rod was made for my brother after he passed. That’s a copy of his badge under the guide.
