    Bug Bond - 5/19/2015
    By: from S E Louisiana

    I recently purchased my first bottle of UV Cure Resin (Original Clear Formula), and although I have not used it extensively yet, I have used it for holding eyes on deer hair poppers an it has worked very well so far. I am waiting for my applicator tips to come in (on back order) and will try it out further once I get them.

    It performs as well as the higher priced alternatives and meets all my expectations. I tie a lot of flies and this makes it a little quicker.

    All around great product - 5/1/2015

    I bought the thick resin, the tips, and the curing light. The light is compact, powerful, and well made, it has a similar case to a flashlight I use in the cockpit. The tips will be useful as you can cut each one to a different thickness. As for the resin itself, I bought the thicker which effectively stays where it's put, yet settles into a nice little blob. It cures quickly with the UV light. I'm very happy with the set.

    Super easy, user friendly - 12/18/2014

    I've always disliked using 2 part epoxy to form heads and finish flies. Plus, head cement and glues don't seem to hold eyes on our saltwater flies very well. This product was easy to apply and even easier to cure. Highly recommended for keeping it simple.

    Bug bond success! - 5/20/2014
    By: from New York

    I was a bit sceptic due to the price of bug bond but when I got it and used it I was real happy with the way the flies I made turned out it worked just as good as clear cure goo and is liked the finish better then the loon products! I will be using this product again and again I tie a lot of big game flies of pike, musky, and everything else from big browns, bass flies, and salt flies for tarpon, bones, and permit, basically a good product for tons of flies!
