Pretty new to the rod building scene, but just found this forum, hoping to find some advice on thread finish. Any guidance will be greatly appreciated. Had a look before posting but there is a lot of mixed ideas so thought i would post.

So up too number 4 on the build list, but it seems that the more care i take the more problems i have. Carn't seem to get the thread finish right, having a big problem with bubbles. Also i have been doing the finish in one coat but after reading should i be doing multiple coats? Getting really bad footballing.
I have been using ProKote in high and medium build, having better results with the high build but dose go off pretty quick. I have tried mixing it in a separate dish they putting it in a flat tray but still heaps of bubbles.
Any Ideas thanks
