I favor and used URAC 185 which is a urea formaldehyde glue and is very popular and often referenced in the newer books about rod making. The glue is easy to mix, it has a long open time and cures quickly. The clean up is also very easy. I mix up 50 grams of resin for a three section trout rod.
This glue is no longer available to us but a new glue is offered and it has the same wonderful properties as URAC 185, the new glue is Unibond 800 and is available from Nelson paint in Canada or the USA depending on where you live.
The new glue is proven to work well and will hold your rod together for all time. If you are considering a change from PVA or epoxy I highly suggest it. It has a shelf life so read the instructions and abide by them, why risk using "past due" glue?
