Default Zap a gap vs super glue

Is there much difference or have any of you noticed a difference between the two?? I been using zap a Gap but have to drive 1/2 hr away to get it but can get superglue two minutes away, thats why im wondering if its worth the drive.

They are both super glue, just ZAP A GAP is waterproof, where "Superglue" in not.
Worth the drive, but maybe stock up while there.

Krazy Glue is waterproof too and the Krazy Glue Gel would be comparable to Zap a Gap

I kinda thought they were all waterproof, but I could be wrong. I like these containers best, due to the squeezability and well designed cap that keeps it usable for a long time.

I keep one of the thin liquid and one of the thickest gel around.

Not all SUPER GLUE is waterproof. I found that out the hard way, and it is printed on the packaging if I had just read.
Krazy Glue looks good though.

Default Re: Zap a gap vs super glue

Zap a Gap is too pricey for me and I had problems with the bottle leaking/drying out.
I tried several super glue types and I've settled on brush on Krazy Glue. If you like it thicker, open it and stir it with the lid off for a few minutes, checking often. It'll thicken. Just remember, it will thicken a little more each time you open it, especially if you leave it open while you finsh a fly, or have dinner, or wait for a load of laundry...
