    At the end of it all, the bottles Loctite Super Glue is STILL better, works faster, sets harder and is cheaper than the others.

    Very dissapointed!
    I also go the loctite route. The best tip I have received about using it though came from Mario (smallstreams) he suggested coating a bit of your thread before the final wraps/whips that way the glue penetrates, binds well and makes little or no mess! (revolutionized my meager endeavors)

    That was a good tip. I've also been using it.

    So I guess the verdict is that water based head cement is useless for normal use. What is the intention of it then?
