    Default Pratley UV Bond/glue

    There is a Pratley UV Bond/Glue available from most hardware stores
    Not sure how good, but it looks good

    At about R60.00 a bottle a lot cheaper than most of the imported stuff.
    Will let you know how it shapes up.
    If someone has used it, let us know about your experiences

    This is actually the same price as Deer Creek and more expensive than Loon UV. Fourteen grams of Deer Creek costs R 285 and Loon UV goes for R 210 per fourteen grams. Those are The African Fly Angler's prices.

    It should be cheaper somewhere out there though...... Has anybody tried the stuff used for nails?

    One thing's for sure, the Pratley can only smell better than SH nail polish

    Francois has used the nails stuff.
    He even put some on my nail, gets very hot when under the UV light, as it cures.

    Not Sally Hansen. I've used Ralo Cosmetics' Gel Top Coat (Soak off UV & LED), and Planet Nails' Ezee-Gel (Buff Off). Both cure well with cheapie UV laser pointer. The gel is less prone to the tacky residue that people often speak of and handy if you quickly want to build bulk due to its high viscosity.

    Finding other products for fly fishing applications is like finding good quality roadkill Bonus! But it seems to be rather expensive for the volume. Isn't there someone with a dentist buddy, I believe they use UV products and buy volumes http://www.adhesiveandglue.com/uv-curing-adhesive.html

    Does anyone have any methods to stop the UV resin from going all dull? Perdigon nymphs look great as they come off the vice, but a day later, they are much duller. (I use Loon UV medium stuff)
