Got it. At first, I felt the same way, because it took me a while to make each fly. I actually used my rotary vise to spin them by hand until the 5-minute epoxy set.
Now I have an electric wheel to put them on, and the epoxy gets evenly distributed without my pathetic efforts creating lopsided bodies.
With practice, speed, efficiency, and quality have improved. Now I don't feel quite as tortured when I lose one like I did with the first few prototypes.
