    Silvercreek's is the first uv cure resin I've used but it cures like glass in a few seconds and is quite easy to use. I'm.still learning, but here are my first trials.

    I've always used Loctite to coat my chironomids. However, Silvercreek's Crystal UV resin and hi-power light is the real deal. It cures in about 5 seconds. And it cures faster than Loctite. Great stuff! Thanks for the prompt shipment Henry.

    +1 for Silvercreek's Crystal UV, great stuff, dries fast and hard nearly like glass! I still keep the Loon stuff around because it's thicker (goopy-er) and if I need that I have it too. Here's a fly tied with the Chrystal UV from Henry.

    Thanks got the positive reviews.

    My IP address is blocked and I have been unable to contact Chris. I am replying from a McDonalds hot spot.

    If you want information about my resin, email me directly using picaboo(at)charter(dot)net

    Substitute @ for (at) and . for (dot) and put resin in the UV subject line.

    Jumping on the Crystal UV bandwagon, definitely great stuff! I got inspired with the glass bead thing and went out on a limb. Got a new lens for the camera too so I had to try it out. #14 glass bead scud.
