Default Best UV lamp for curing resins

Hey folks,

For those that use UV resin to tie some of their flies: Do you use the specific manufacturer's lamp, or do you find that other lamps are more effective? I have the Loon Mini Lamp, but before I upgrade to the larger Pro lamp for the UV clear, I wanted to see if I'd be better off using a different brand.

I have one I grabbed off ebay which works fine but weakens overtime till I put in new batteries. I have a lamp and a UV laser that I got from Silvercreek that work very well. The laser is GREAT for small flies, cures very fast.

+1 for what William said! The old one I had originally took 10-20 seconds to cure the UV, the one I got from Silver cures in 2-3 seconds!

Ask him about his resin too. Cures great and is tack free.
