Description

A water-based, thick polyurethane head cement for building hard, colorful glossy heads and bodies on your favorite fly patterns. This one part formula is non-toxic, odor-free and replaces messy epoxies or solvent-based lacquers in many applications. Featured in saltwater patterns developed by Joe Branham. 1 oz. bottle with applicator brush.  Loon Fluorescing Hard Head performs just like Hard Head Clear, and takes the UV light that is available underwater and reflects it as a color more visible to fish.

Other Details

Pearlescent colors have sparkle in the cement for a soft reflective finish. The Phosphorescent cement glows in the dark.

Great Glue/Bad Brush

Reviewer: from Ithaca, NY US

I dilute Hard Head with one third thinner and use it for the all heavy duty jobs - streamer heads, clousers, etc. It works great, but the new jars have a brush with a stem that is too long and it jams the brush fibers into the bottom of the jar.

Top Finish

Reviewer: from MACGREGOR, QUEENSLAND AU

This is a very good product. Not only being able is it a water-based product where you don't get those chemical fumes dissipating everywhere, it gives a very nice finish on the heads of your flies. All you have to do is either use the brush applicator that comes with the product or use a needle to apply it onto the fly head for a great finish.

Just OK

Reviewer: from Michigan

Got a bottle free from a promotion. I'm glad I never bought this because for my needs any cheap nail polish does the trick. Lots of people say SHHAN is better because it's cheaper, but they don't realize you get half the amount for about half the price, unless I'm going crazy and don't see the cheaper bottles of Sally's. I can see this being great for painting poppers or just clear coating them, but as far as head cement I can't justify the price.

today's product

Reviewer: from Windsor, ME

Never had a problem with the old lacquer head cement, but this is the product for today's environment. Works the same as the old stuff, just more crunchy.

my bottle must be mislabled

Reviewer: from Windsor, ME

this is good head finish, shiny, easy to work with, fast drying, but hard? I don't think so. It's more of a latex type material when dry, kind of stretchy and rubbery, but certainly not hard. I read other reviews and wonder if we are using the same product.
