Where to buy U40 in the Grand Rapids area?

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know where I can get it locally. I'd like to use my new rod on a fishing vacation at the end of the week but I think I should apply the sealer before using it.

Worse comes to worse, it you can't find it local, just use a Magic Eraser or some super fine sandpaper after the trip and it'll look like new, then seal it.

Order it, and go fishing.  It'll be fine for one weekend.

But worse came to worse and couldn't get it.  Then you said sand it and seal it.  Without having cork seal.  But you recommend sealing it with cork seal.  ???

 

Another option that will keep it from getting nasty again is to clean it up  as above and use Tru Oil gunstock finish on it.  It will turn it a little darker, increase the contrast.  As with cork seal, one coat.  I put a few drops on the surface then move it around evenly with my bare hands.  Doesn't take much.  Tru Oil is pretty easy to find.

The implication being order it now, fish with it, clean it up a bit if it's dirtied during the trip, then seal it after the trip once the order is delivered. Is that clear enough for you?
