I need some epoxy for attaching grips and reel seats. I seen PC 7 on Home Depot . Com with free shipping. Has anyone used it? How did it work? Please let me know your thoughts. Thank You. Brian

It's good stuff. The only negative is that it doesn't dry clear. I wouldn't use on lighter colored components because of its dark gray color, unless you are super thorough in your clean-up..

I have used Two Ton epoxy.  Good stuff.  I am using Rod Bond and find it to be good but isn't as near liquid as Two Ton.  Rod Bond won't flow into cracks and crevices.

I have PC7 and it sticks just fine.   But I prefer using Gorilla Glue as it flows into all the cracks and crevices and is real easy to clean up after it dries.

I use Polyurethane glue (Elmers - GG foams too much for me) for bamboo blanks and for ferrules - once I've established that I like the rod. However, PU glue is not as reversible as Rod Bond or some of the epoxies. It takes close to 600 degrees to get PU glues to let go and by then your rod is toast. I only use it once I'm looking for everything on the rod to be permanent.

Any two part epoxy is fine, no need to buy "rod building epoxy". Last 5 yrs all I have used is 5 min epoxy from Walmart $2.97. Used on on at least 400+ rods, no issues.
