Used Elmer’s probond wood filler, turned out perfect and now it’s time to seal it. 

Did you sand it afterward ? I'd guess yes, but which grits ?

Love that Elmer's Golden Oak on cork and I sanded mine after with 220 grit.  I found the best way to sand was to put the rod on an open back chair with the handle to the front, then it on it and sand it with 220 strips as if you were shining a shoe between your legs.  It does not take a lot of sanding and gives you good control.

220 and seal with U40.  Will last years.

I have a rod where the filler is falling out in places.  I had coated it with U40, but having definitely gone too thick with it before, I think I went too light of an application on this specific rod. 

 

I assume I should sand what ever U40 that is on there off before I try and fill the gaps?

You're going to sand any way, so it probably isn't necessary.

Sounds reasonable, thanks.

A magic eraser will take U40 off if you want to apply a new coat. I bought a nrx before with a really crappy U40 job and it worked well for me.

FYI Probond is exterior grade vs standard Elmer's

i used 120 for the deeper repair and 220 for a final sand than sealed it.
