D2 epoxy works well. I agree with most I don’t worry about it. 
You using a fluid bed? Makes the powder thinner on your jig head and makes it harder to chip

Yes I use fluid bed and they still seem to chip. Fixing to try out the epoxy and see how it goes.

I find epoxy based powder coating to last significantly longer than polyester. The good stuff from Pro Tec is worth the money. Extra seal is nice but my jigs usually won`t get old enough to lose their paint. When I went to business I tried epoxy and reached a near-indestructable level but I found it too much effort for commercial application. That being said, If you´re the kind of guy that spends 20min on an extra nice jig for an environment that won`t snag too much- why not?  8)
   
Proper cleaning in alcohol helps, too, unless you wear gloves. You don´t want any fat on the surfaces, not even fingerprints.
