Which Brand and bottle shape of super glue do you use fro ZMANS

What type and specifically what bottle style of superglue do you use for sticking ZMANs to jigheads?

Heres what I have been using - and you can tell by the mangled lid that it will get stuck if not stored in an upright position

Just had a look at a US site and these brands get a mention - Gel superglues seem to be popular

But I also like the idea of the Nail polish style applicators mentioned due to the air tight seal on the bottle and the pin point accuracy provided by a brush

If your on Facebook check out a video just posted on how a guy rigs his Zmans with no need for glue.
He just puts the hook through a tiny bit at the top/front of the plastic, takes the hook out and feeds the lure on in the usual way, then when its up against the head he pulls that little bit he nicked up over the hook eye and then ties the jig head onto his leader.
Looks like a great idea to me.

Definitely. I fish Zmans a lot and I'll be trialing it for sure.

Yeah I use metal clips to attach my soft plastics to the leader - so it should be particularly easy to execute. Just unclip - pull the plastic over - and reclip - job done.

I think I'll grab a stash of those TT Headlock jigheads everyone keeps talking about aswell. They are supposed to be very Zman friendly

I just use the Aldi or Daiso brands, the locktite precision and gel are useless as they invariably self seal with loads still left in the bottle.

Yeah finding a non "self sealing" super glue is the Holy Grail - I dont think it exists - thats why the nail polish applicator glue peaked my interest - I wonder how quick they dry

Maybe a cheaper and more effective way of rigging your Zmans

https://m.facebook.com/groups/breama...6901919354935/

Not sure if the link will work...
