Default Re: Tiers: Whip Finish- Tool or Fingers?

Cliff, I used to have a problem with the super glue when I thought the only type to use was Zap-a-Gap, etc. I've started buying the little tubes of it at Home Depot, Lowes, Wally World, etc at about $0.50 a tube. A tube of it will last a long time, is easy to use, and I can usually find it in the mess pretty easily. When I bought the Zap I'd usually wind up with a bottle of it gone bad before I used it up. If I don't tie very often, this can sometimes happen in the little tubes, but then you haven't lost a lot when it does. I've also found dispensing it out of the tube is easier than a wire applicator from the other. Anyway, just my 2 cents worth. I do feel more secure with a good whip finish, and I have had some flies come unraveled if I'd not got a good coating on the thread.
