One of the many exciting product launches at this years Glasgow Angling Centre September Open Weekend is the new mains powered UV light source from Bug-Bond! One of the biggest complaints we hear about Bug-Bond is that is has stopped curing completely, leaving a tacky finish. This problem is almost always caused by poor quality or weak batteries in the torch and we have proved this many times in-store! The new mains powered kit eradicates this problem and will be a godsend to those who use Bug-Bond extensively in their fly-tying!
So what is the new kit? Well it’s more of an upgrade! Bug-Bond where not going to introduce another new light when thousands of GAC customers have already shelled out for the Professional UV Light and are very happy with it! Powered by a single AA battery the Bug-Bond Professional UV Light set a new benchmark in curing UV resins for fly tying, offering great curing performance with long battery life it looked like they had cracked it. However, David was already designing the next phase, to design a light with a continuous source of power that doesn't run out or vary - a mains powered unit. Since the Bug-Bond range didn't need another light the new one was designed as an upgrade that uses the existing Professional Light and gives the end user the best of both worlds - mains power with portability when you need it!
The main component is a remote foot pedal that replaces the the switch on the Professional UV Light. This in turn is powered from the mains electricity via an AC/DC adapter, giving the user the convenience of mains power with a nifty foot operated UV light source (leaving both hands free to manipulate materials etc) as well as the portability demanded by the travelling fly tyer. You could keep the foot operated switch at home for the tying bench and when going to a fly tying club or on a fishing trip, return the light to AA battery operation - another first for light cured resins in fly tying from Bug-Bond who remain at the forefront of the fly tying resin market and have picked up 2 innovation awards over the last two years to prove it!
