It wouldn't be a bad idea to contact The Manufacturers of The Finishes you use as they would surely know of something to take The Gloss off their products without affecting it.
Most manufacturers I've had anything to do with are only too happy to help also it could be an opening for a New Product for them.
Another thing you'll have a larger range of Products you can use.

The smallest Valspar that my local Lowes sells is the pint can.
The spar varnish from Ace Hardware is highly recommended by the guys over at the classic rod forum and comes in half pints.
That's what I use on my glass rods

Thanks for the suggestions everyone.

I'm going to try the varnish on a spare rod fragment.

I'm also going to try a deglosser over epoxy to see if that works.

I have some satin urethane, so I may as well try that, too.

Who ever said spar varnish is old school, on the other forum, is out of touch when it comes using it. They probably learned to build using flex coat and never looked past that finish. Bamboo and fiberglass rods are still finished and refinished with spar. It last for years and is very easy to touch up.

Besides its custom rod building...... there is no wrong way to do it.

And who said being old school is bad anyway? It's a myth that newer = better

Old school = bad?

Like the Roman-tech wax ring that seals my toilet to the drain pipe? That's +2k old school! That must make it purely evil.
