Head Cement,
January 13, 2014
By: Sluggo
from Avid Flyfisherman, Sedona, Arizona
"This head cement is one of the better ones I normally use. If kept from drying out and using a little thinner, it works and lasts a good long time. Multiple coats for a gloss effect work great."

"Excellent penetration even with waxed thread. I've been using the deep penetrating cement for almost 20 years with good results. Thins well with ordinary laquer thinner."

"This cement works well. I got the Deep Pentetrating type. It really soaks in, and does not bead up on the thread surface. Gives a durable finish and hold. Quick drying, but you do have enough working time."
