Default Clear Cure Goo ?

After seeing curing lites advertised i had to know the details. Looks to be somewhat new i guess? I watched some videos and i am impressed. I think i have a lite bought or in the process of buying a lite and now i wonder if Bass Pro has the glue? I'll call today. Are any of you fellers or gals using this stuff and if so give us the pros and cons please. So far i like what i see. Makes some beautiful flys.

You're correct it does make some beautiful flies. One thing to note is that the finished product stays a little tacky, so you will need to put a thin coat of Sally's Hard as Nails or Hard as Hull to get that nice hard finish. I have no idea if Bass Pro sells the Clear Cure Goo stuff.

I use i as well, its awesome, but as Larry metioned, gotta hit it with a thin layer of head cement or rubbing alcohol to get rid of the tackiness. Totally worth it though, I even use it for the heads on salmon/spey flies.

I use the Loon UV setup. Uses are limitless.
Makes a great wing cover for nymphs (copper johns, stones, etc.), with flash tinsel underneath it creates a sort of prism effect.
Smooths out small worms and midge larvae, while adding translucence.
Heads for baitfish.
Gooey looking mysis patterns.
smoother chironomid bodies.
The best part is that you can 'sculpt' the material because it is very viscous, setting it in place with the light when the right shape is achieved.

On these flies, I used UV glue to fill in the head around the bead eyes, and to smooth the wing case. A coat of 'hard as hull' gives grain and durability to the fly.

Glue heads created over stick-on eyes for bait fish:

Absorbed in to feathers to make 'claws', also for giving shape to the thin-skin back. A drop is set at the end of a rubber leg to make 'eyes'.

I also patched a hole in my waders with the stuff, still working!
I balked at first, didn't want to spend ~30-50$ on a UV setup. Now I use it almost every time I tie. You won't regret the money spent in my opinion.

Ive been using it for a couple years now. the originals were a bit tacky which was cured by wiping with alcohol after they cure or by coating the sally hansens hard as nails. But the new tack free version really seems to be just that, tack free after curing. The hydro product they came out with is fantastic - it's slightly thicker than head cement and fantastic. the stuff just works great and is totally tack free.

Default Re: Clear Cure Goo ?

A quick question. What is the consistency of this Goo after it has been cured? Is it still soft so to speak or does it become very hard as does the epoxy? Is it flexable? In other words. If you ran out a ball of it out on the table and hit it with the lite would it become very hard to where it would keep it's shape even if you were to mash on it? or would it be hard as a rock? Really curious. What should i expect? Maybe pliable as a plastic worm or break like a potatoe chip? Bass Pro dont carry it.
Thanks
Eddy

Google clear cure goo kit and you'll find a good link to bearsden dot com. Excellent info on how to use the product. Did have to laugh as the folks who make this stuff also have a web page and you (you'd think) buy direct .... each one of the variations on the theme was marked "Out of Stock."
