Default How long to let dry?

How long after the last coat should I let it dry before fishing?

How long can you stand to wait ?

Just 'till it's dry

It's way past it's hardening time, and I'm sure you've already fished it. Read the label of the epoxy. Most are 24- 48 hours. Unless it's Diamondite or U40.

I only use lite build flexcoat. It should set for 24 hours before you use it. 2nd coats should be done after 12 hours but before 24 for best results.
