    I'll admit I was worried when I first opened the can--this stuff is THICK, and dries FAST. After pouring into the dip tube, I had trouble wiping the edge of the can with a paint brush, it was setting so fast. I wouldn't recommend this as a lacquer for normal dipping, but for the gasket system it's great. Once it was in the dip tube with the gasket in place, dipping was simple and quick. I put five coats on each of thirty-six arrows in only a couple of hours. These were the first arrows I made myself, and when I showed them to other long-time archers the next day, they all exclaimed about the beautiful finish and wanted to know what I'd used. Also, after three hours of constant target shooting, the finish was unmarred.

    I purchased the pro dippers (large and small) with the speed coat system (EXCELLENT SYSTEM), a guart of clear (BRILLIANT AND EASY TO USE) and a pint of yellow(BLAHHH)!!! The clear with the speed coat is great, I would advise letting crested colors set for a week, but the "yellow" is more of an umber (brownish yellow) that doesn't match my yellow gateway feathers, not even close. I was very disappointed with the yellow and would rather have just stuck with the clear. You can't beat the clear with the speed coat but be wary of the yellow!!!! Haven't tried the white, probably won't......

      Comments about Gasket Lacquer Arrow Finish:

      I purchased this to use with the big dipper dip tube and the speed coat gasket kit and I could not be more pleased. I would not recommend this product without the eco dipper or gasket system because its way to thick to dip without some sort of gasket to wipe away the excess. The finish is superior to anything I have used and it is super tough, it even holds up to repeated use in 3D targets. Its so simple to use and it dries in minutes. You have to experiment a little with the speed that you withdraw the shaft from the gasket to get the best coverage, the faster you pull the shaft the thicker the lacquer coat will be, if you pull it too fast you may get runs. The shafts in the picture are Douglas Fir coated using gasket lacquer and crested with Whispering Wind cresting paint. I applied the 3 rivers oil based stain, let dry for 24 hours, applied 4 coats of gasket lacquer, let it dry for a few hours, crested, let dry for 24 hours, then add 2 more coats and hit them with some steel wool to dull the finish for hunting. I used the recommended Duco cement for the fletching and it worked very well. This is hands down the best shaft sealing system I have ever used!!

      Service and delivery comments:

      3 Rivers as always has excellent customer service and top notch products for traditional bow hunters.

        Comments about Gasket Lacquer Arrow Finish:

        I have been using gasket lacquer with the Eco Dipper for several years. 4 coats will give you the best hard glassy finish. after 3 coats I could still feel the grain through the finish. 4 coats will add about 18 grains to a full length 23/64 shaft. this is the most durable finish I have ever used, and the residue from 3D targets sticks to it less than any other finish. what does stick is easy to clean up. for hunting arrows, I buffed the shafts with #0000 steel wool, fletched them, then sprayed with clear matte acrylic finsh to eliminate glare. this product is highly recommended.

            I was worried that the application of this lacquer would be uneven and difficult; however I was very mistaken. Using the Eco-Dipper I lacquered four shafts (several layers) in very little time.

            Comments about Gasket Lacquer Arrow Finish:

            I use this product to protect my cresting on my arrows. It will go over Fletch-Laq. as well. I use it on woods, carbons, and alum shafts. It lets me do 3 coats and get to the fletching of my shafts in a few minutes. Only down side is it needs to be warm when applying.

                Comments about Gasket Lacquer Arrow Finish:

                A lot of archers who have been at arrow making for a while get thrown off by the thickness of the lacquer, DON'T. The thickness of the lacquer and the speed it dries in are its best attributes. Using the lacquer without the speed coat system and a pro-dipper (small or large) will be disastrous, so do not use this product if you are unwilling to use those. It dries extremely fast, your first arrow will be ready for another coat by the time you finish the last, but it does require quite a few coats to get a proper seal (still should not take you more than 30min to finish 12). It will need to be thinned so check the consistency BEFORE you dip, i use similar diameter dowels. I find that it has way less "foam burn" than any other sealer.

                    Building arrows in the past - furniture - homes - and many other experience was never as disappointing as one day with Gasket Lacquer! The learning curve is quick and disappointing if you don't buy the entire system. If you stay with the traditional products you have time to make choices, see what is happening and work with tried and true systems. If you do use this product line good luck!

                          I tried the Bohning product, BUT it does NOT work. This product works perfectly. I've been using the gasket lacquer process for approximately 10 years now and have absolutely NO complaints with this product.
