The superglue gel is easy to apply and doesn’t drip

 

It is essential for certain plastics like Z-man uses

I agree. However like mentioned above I cut a small core out of the center of the plastic. Less likely to split and tear.

What is the trick to know where the hook comes thru the top of the plastic ? 

I just hold the jig head up alongside the plastic to measure and hold my thumb there while I am pushing it on. Works for me.

Has anyone figured out how to get more than one use out of a superglue tube?  I close the lid and then zip lock it, and a month later when I need it its all crusted up solid.  

 

Every time.

 

Single use product.

I’ve been using various brand names of brush-on super glue for a couple of decades.  First it was Future Glue sold at WallMart.  Then WallMart switched to Krazy Glue brush-on super glues.  I think all superglues are about the same although super glue jells work best and seem to last longer once opened.  Super glued soft plastics to jigs makes them last 3-4 times longer on the hook… so it’s well worth the cost and effort.

Newbies, this is how I do it.  First lace on a soft plastic halfway on the jig and stop just before the jig keeper barb.  Then brush on the super glue jell then immediately push the soft plastics all the way on.

Most times I glue several of my goto plastics to jigs the night before.  The glue get rock solid overnight.

If blues are around, even small nipper blues, then all bets are off.  Then I don’t bother with super gluing plastics.

That's why I use the brush on. One bottle lasts half a season if you take care of it.

Cut the tip off with a knife or scissors
