I like to use squeegees for the initial coat. They're very efficient in controlling the amount of epoxy that gets put on. I also use squeegees for the first wetting out of the glass for the same reason.

Once the glass is on the hull, the yellow rollers sold at CLC have done the best job of putting on multiple very thin coats to fill the weave. Since all rollers always leave bubbles, I use a dry foam brush to tip out each coat.

Since I started doing things this way, I've never had any globs, drips or runs, so I make back the money spent on rollers and brushes in savings on sandpaper and fairing compound.
