This super hard head cement contains acrylic copolymers. The cap of the original formula has a brush applicator. The penetrator formula, new for 2013, is specially formulated to soak in and lock in the fly materials without added bulk or changing the surface appearance. The thinner can be used with either of the 2 cement formulas. 1/2 oz. bottle.

Not Worth It

Reviewer: from Peralta, NM US

This is a good head cement but I do not see how its worth it when you can buy sally hansen's hard as nails. They are almost identical but sally hansen's is much cheaper and easier to find at wall greens. Besides that, it is a good head cement especially as a top coat over epoxy or clear cure goo.

Pretty Much Perfect

Reviewer: from Missoula, MT US

This cement is pretty similar, if not identical, to a certain someone's nail protector polish. Nonetheless, it applies very easily and comes ready-to-use out of the attractive bottle. A single coat will soak right into your threads/lead/material and make a solid, secure connection. Multiple coats will rather quickly build up a larger head. Dry-time is decent enough...a few minutes for a liberal coating. The applicator is a bit large for smaller flies, but nothing a bodkin can't fix. It's a bit pricey for what it is and how much you get, but it will still last for a great many flies. The smell is also a bit strong, but evaporates rather quickly.

Good cement for the dries

Reviewer: from Fort Collins, CO

I have used this for years and it works great. I did trim the brush a little so it didn't get all over the fly. Dries fast and easy to apply to finish those prized flies.

Great product!

Reviewer: from Chatsworth, GA US

This product gives a very hard finish to your flies. The only problem I have had is if the lid sticks to the bottle, it's impossible to loosen it.
