Default Re: What epoxy???

I've been working with epoxy flies for about 15 years now. I've found Devcon to be the best for me.

I used Devcon 2-Ton Epoxy when I'm using the stuff as a body/head coating. For flies with an epoxy body, I used Devcon 5-Minute Epoxy.

With the 2-ton, I can do about 6-8 flies. I have a "rotisserie" at my tying bench.

You can get Devcon for less than $2 per syringe at Wal-Mart.

Thanks for all the answers. I normally use a lot of 5 min Devcon in other applications, and I really like it. But, some time back at our TU meeting we had a speaker and he said "any epoxy, but Devcon". So i asked him why not Devcon, but he turned away and gave no answer. No, I will not put his name here.
I have used the Devcon with good results for my epoxy head.
