I knocked these guys up quickly this afternoon... made with Bug-Bond UV light cured resin that doesn't need wiping or coating... hope you enjoy them as much as I did tying them.

Offshore: Very cool looking effect! That Bug-Bond is quite the interesting material. Nice work!

I guess whatever the Paypal conversion rate dictates... but its cheaper to ship to the States from the UK than it is to get it from the States to the UK

I went to the Bug Bond website, but I couldn't tell what it would cost for the stuff, much less shipping. It was in Euros I guess, and it did not have it in dollars that I could see. Does anyone here know?

Kelkay...

20ml bottle is 14.95 GBP
UV Torch is 45.00 GBP
Pro-Tip dispensing kit is 4.95 GBP (but is currently free with orders of the kit)

Royal Mail Airsure tracked and insured is 4/5 days to the US cost 9 GBP approx

Total cost 68.95 GBP

Conversion to dollars at $1.5677 USD to 1 GBP the cost would be:

$108 USD (hope that helps)

(Sorry the website is set up for GBP NOT Euros)

Thank you. I thought all stuff was in Euros now for UK etc...
That is a pretty penny...but I am sure it is worth it if you can afford it, or if you use it a lot. That cleared things up for me, and I do appreciate that very much.

Kelly... it is so much easier than using epoxy, varnish etc and the fact that there isn't any wastage is important, time saving is out of this world (3-6 seconds to cure)... and the really big plus here is that you don't have to swab it with alcohol or coat with Sally Hansen's... the end result is the result... its crystal clear
