    This stuff performs as described and Henry's customer service and shipping was excellent! By far the best deal for a better performing product.
    Thanks again for doing other fly tyers a solid service!

    I coated a couple foam bass popper heads with it tonight and it provided a very nice finish. It did make the sharpie colors bleed and run a bit, is this normal? What would you recommend for color that wont bleed?

    Just as a heads up to people. The resin does act as a solvent for some inks. Hilighter and sharpies on foam will bleed, with the highlighter being picked up by the brush/resin. Not really a big issue, just wanted to let you guys know. I've raided my GF's fingernail polish to color my popper heads and that works just fine with the resin coating.

    Just out in the summer 2014 issue of Flyfishing and Tying Journal is an article on Clear Coating Comparison by Kirk Dietrick on pg 48. He reviews several UV coating including Clear Cure Goo Hydro, Deer Creek Thin, Solarez Thin and my Crystal UV Coat. Only Deer Creek and my Crystal UV Coat cured completely with The Clear Cure Goo Pro Lite.

    All the UV resins and Liquid Fusion caused some bleeding of the marker colors. This could be prevented by pre coating the marker colors with 2 light coatings of Krylon Crystal Clear indoor/outdoor acrylic clear coating before allying the UV resins or Liquid Fusion.

    Purchased the high power and UV light kit. Prompt delivery. Used it on several salt patterns. Works as advertised, dries tack free. Great product.

    Purchased the basic kit (light + resin). Good communication, fast turnaround (shipped next day), and everything I ordered was in the package (the exact opposite of my experiences with another web based company that used to sell here often...). The package actually arrived a day before the post office estimate.

    I've never been accused of being talented at the vise and was still able to whip out this fly on my first go'round (aka if I can do it anyone can)

    I ordered from you a while back and finally found my self tying up flies after signing in off of leave and retunin back to Korea. I love your product it does exactly what it is supposed to do. I use it on very small portions of my flies to covering almost all of it. I may have a dependancey for your resin. I have post my "PIXI MINNOW" on the fly tying section of the forum.

    Sweet Jesus Almighty! *Finally* a "tack-free" UV cure that actually delivers on what it promises. *Real* squid aren't half as likely to stick together in a maddening clump as any marabou-tie with a resin head made with other "tack-free" cures. This stuff is the real deal. Cures fast and tack free. Hallelujah!
