This stuff is great for its intended purpose, which is not head cement. There are far better products for that. The best being Celire by Veniard. Softex is great for coating turkey tail quills before use so they are easier to work with. Also great for coating over big hair wing style streamers so they hold their shape. But still not the best for head cement.
This product is a great replacement for epoxy and produces a very even finish. I prefer other products (such as loon hard head) for normal head cement, but for any flies that need a large coating (clouser, thunder creek Shiners, etc etc.) this is definitely the way to go.
does not create a hard "plastic like" finish like epoxy.but if you want a quicker easier method for a coated,protected head on a fly this is it-when your done tying your flies dip them in the jar as far as you would like the fly to be coated,than hang to dry.thats it no mixing part a and b,no turning your fly,etc.i ussualy do 2 or 3 dips,letting it dry between dips.
