I don t think the 30 minute epoxy would flow and level like you need for a finish. Google fishing rod thread finish. Threadmaster and flexcoat are two brands that I use. You can get them down to 1oz containers. You mis equal parts and brush on. they self level. On a handle you will need to turn the handle every few minutes for a couple hours or it will sag on you any eposy will do that.

Do you think that these can take being hit with a mallet or hammer? I whacked some epoxy adhesive drips on a piece of scrap wood pretty hard with a hammer as a test and it didn’t show any signs of being hit or coming off the scrap which is what made me consider this in the first place.
