ProKöte Rod Building Thread Finish

Product Details

PROKÖTE™ rod building thread finish is the perfect choice for professional-grade finished fishing rods.

With its extended working time, easy leveling, good bubble release, and excellent thread saturation, PROKÖTE™ is your go-to choice for rod building needs. Each kit includes mixing and application instructions, and the smaller kits (2-8 oz.) also include a set of free 3cc color-coded syringes and yorker caps. The base resin and hardening components are provided in equal amounts, and are mixed in a simple 1:1 ratio. With its medium-build structure, PROKÖTE™ remains flexible without becoming too soft or hard, and its unique leveling properties release micro bubbles with ease. Protect your rod from UV rays, scratches, abrasions, and the elements with the superior clarity retention and yellowing protection of PROKÖTE™.

  • Medium build viscosity remains flexible without staying soft or becoming too hard and cracking
  • Unique leveling properties release micro bubbles with ease
  • Excellent thread saturation creates a deep protective coating
  • Protects your thread wraps from harmful UV rays, scratches, abrasions, and the elements
  • Prevents the growth of mold and mildew, which can damage and degrade guide wraps over time

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.

Best rod clearing epoxy available

Phillip Justice (Cabot, AR, US)
Crystal Clear

I use this thread finish on all my rod builds as the top coat, after the wetting coat. Has not shown any signs of yellowing after years of exposure to the sun. It has excellent leveling characteristics. I suggest this product to anyone looking for a great thread finish.

ProKöte Rod Building Thread Finish

Robert Rosenblum (Naples, FL, US)
beautiful finish

I have used this thread finish on all the rods I have made. It is just right for finishing thread windings - clear, easy to apply, smooth drying, and a very hard finish. I cannot imagine why I would use anything else. Great product.

Works like it's supposed to.

Works well on wraps and to make epoxy ramps.
