Rod Paint
« on: September 27, 2013, 09:41:46 AM »
Hey Guys,


Just had a thought but not sure if its already out there or not.  Was wondering if there is some type of glow in the dark paint that can be used on the rod tip section (10-20cm) for fishing at night so that glow sticks wouldn't be needed.  Not sure if this is a stupid question or not lol


Hope one of builders could advise on this. 


Thanks so much!

Here you go....

Builders Warehouse stock the Rust-Oleum products.
Spray it on. Let it dry and finish it off with a clear coat and you are good to go.

 rust o leum are good but , try Montana is designed for Slippery / shiny surfaces ,it also has a thinner consistancy than Rust o , I know a bit about these type paints    :hehe: :hehe: you will have to visit Shelflife in loop street !


Mo tip and Molotof are also very good for shiny surfaces [ like rods and STeel ]

Back in the days all my rods had white refleckting tape tips. These days I use the glow stick. With the glow in the dark paint you have to recharge the paint every now and then with your headlamp. With the glow sticks you only use your headlamp to rebait.

We got the refleckting tape from the sing righter. Use to get the of cuts for free. Don't know about the paint but you should be able to get it. After some time the glow in the dark does not glow any more, them you need to shine a light on it to regard again. Every time you put your headlamp on your eyes need to get use of the dark again.

I used the normal reflective tape before but kept a light on,because you just need a little light to be able to see it reflect...when not sure if the rodtip is moving I'd use my headlamp and shine on the tip...the dark and reflective tape messes with ones mind sometimes,where it looks as if the tip is moving... :cnfzd :hehe:
