Description

Similar to Loon's water base cement but with twice the solids content for fast head or body build-up. Fast drying, quick penetrating, non-flammable polyurethane emulsion that contains no harmful toluene. Dries completely clear, tough and waterproof. An excellent choice for tying plastic bodied or plastic ribbed flies, whose material is attacked by solvent based systems. Uses Loon's unique needle top applicator bottle with a 18 gauge needle. 1 oz. bottle.

Applicator Works Great

Reviewer: from Highlands Ranch, CO US

I'd used a cheap brand in a bottle previously and had to apply with a needle or similar tool. It was a pain and ended up drying out inside the bottle too quickly.

This is a great solution - it allows the cement to stay good longer inside the bottle and the applicator works well, when the right amount of pressure is applied.

Great Product

Reviewer: from Belgrade, MT.

Recently started using this product and I really like the application process. Seems like it is a durable hold as well.

Excellent head finish system

Reviewer: from Maine, NY

This head finish system comes with a precision, needle nose nozzle that threads on the bottle for clean precise dispensing. It also comes with a brush for a heavier application. The best part is the head finishing liquid don't discolor the tying materials if it comes in contact with them, love this stuff.

This glue is awesome

Reviewer: from Warwick, RI US

This water-base glue solved the problem of living in a small apartment and using smelly head cements. This glue is great for direct application to feathers and heads alike. This glue is thin enough to apply directly to the fly, making it easier and faster to use than the traditional thick and smelly head cements.

it's so-so

Reviewer: from Vermont

I haven't been terribly impressed by this stuff.

I thought that it'd be easier to use when tying several flies all at once, but I find that some of the product tends to dry inside the needle aplicator and needs to be cleaned out before it dries permanently, even when replacing the supplied needle stopper between flies. Also, I don't like the way it builds up at times. It seems that it doesn't penetrate the thread like the Orvis stuff I used before.

One good thing is that there are certainly less fumes than my old head cement. There's no smell at all. It can be neater than using a bodkin, but also, it's hard to tell when you're going to get some coming out the tip, and how much and how fast. As consequence of this it seems that my tying speed has slowed somewhat.
