Looking for the cheapest but still effective and good epoxy resin. (no yellowing, cracking, dissolving, etc.,)

Thank you

cheap epoxy isn't good, good epoxy isn't cheap.

For RR:

You will need about 30-35 oz (with fin boxes/leash plug/mistakes).  Check this out:

Cheap resin is about not wasting the good stuff.

$65 for a 1.5 gallon kit + $17 shipping.. and the epoxy is pretty good from what i've used.

I consider RR cheap resin.

And it is very good!

But for fin boxes and other filling, I use a less exotherm casting resin (Epovoss BK). But it's a little more expensive and it yellows if used for laminating.
