Epoxy Shelf Life

21 December 2011 - 12:34 PM

This may be a common question, and if so, I apologize, but here goes. I have been out of rod building for a couple of years and am getting ready to start a new project. I have a couple of bottles of Threadmaster that have been stored in a box in the basement for 2 to 2.5 years. The hardner has yellowed quite a bit. Is it still usable, or will it look yellow on the rod?

Also, I have some rod bond 2-part epoxy (also a couple years old) that has thickened quite a bit. Will the age affect these products? If so, I can buy new, I just thought I'd check. Thanks for any advice you can give.

Gatti Real Seat Dimensions

20 December 2011 - 03:28 PM

Howdy guys, been a long time since my last post. Does anyone know the hood dimensions of Gatti real seat hardware? Not sure if there are different models, but this reel seat is on a 5 weight rod and has a nickel silver finish. I am wanting to replace the grip on the rod, but don't know what dimension the inlet in the new grip needs to be. Thanks in advance for any help.
