    Default Voodoo, magic or what?

    Have you seen this stuff? I can think of a lot of uses in fly fishing if it's for real and doesn't eat feathers, fur and clothing.

    Prepare to be amazed...

    Another paper on the subject:

    Looks like this would be a good coating to prevent icing on guides, among other things.

    I'm shocked and amazed ! The first thing that comes to mind is gloves for casting when the weather has gone South on me. Dry and warm are a hard combo to do. This would make that a whole lot easier.

    Would like to read the MSDS, contact with your skin all day could cause your babies to be born naked. Dan is right about the gloves and my baseball cap used to keep the rain off my glassed would be nice too.

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    It'd be great on gloves. If it works that great, I can see GoreTex as a relic.

    Wow! Very cool! I can think of all sorts of uses for this stuff, not just fishing related.

    Cost is $184 plus shipping for 1 quart each of the bottom coat and top coat plus hand held sprayers that are resistant to harsh solvents (xylene and accetone).

    Abrasion is the biggest enemy of this stuff. Also Natural oils from the skin will cause failure of product.

    So for Icing guides I would think it would work good. As far as gloves, it would work good also. But the question for both of these applications is how long will it last? I can see gloves for fishing that have the finger tips removed being problematic. The oils from you skin will cause the coating on the inside to fail faster than the outside. So that if water will start soaking or "pooling" on the inside after awhile. The guides would work great until the abrasion wears it off. I would suspect the abrasion from line on guides would be localized on the bottom of the guides where the line would run as if your fighting a fish. The rest of the guide would still be coated. But I would be concerned that as the ice starts building up on the areas that have had coating worn away it would even start forming over coated areas.

    A neat product but as always the devil is in the details. I might give it a try. Gloves would be the first thing I 'd try.
