The ones I built fell apart after two fish. The CDC didn't hold up.
They floated great. Looked great and they caught fish.
But I would think they would hold up longer. I didn't pull them out with Hemos.
Should I put Head cement at the Base??

Sounds like you might not be tying the wing in tight enough. :?: I wouldn't use the cement, would think it would wick up the fibers and ruin them.

Tie the wing in laying forward and dam thread to stand it up before you build your body. Might help :?:
