I like it because it has no odor, and works really fast. The tiny aperture on the application nozzle is good for small flies. The cement soaks into the head rapidly and completely, leaving no residue or anything to impair later lacquering I may do for larger flies. The smallest amounts are needed, it is so good. The only drawback is that it tends to separate if not used a lot, kept shaken/mixed and do not store in the light. Once separated it does not like to remix. I have had this happen twice now. With this in mind, I would be happy with a half or even a quarter sized bottle/amount and having to buy it more frequently due to running out, rather than having to replace nearly all of it because, despite a lot of use, it is so good.
Works well as expected with loon products
Excellent product. Can you give me the approximate drying time before I can put a hardener coat on my jig.
This was the best bottle of head cement that I have purchased. It penetrates the threads so good on the buck tail jigs that I was making. It dried fast and looked good. Keep up the good work.
Applies nicely, dries clear and strong. Like it.
