CA brands

Is there one brand of CA that seems to be the most widely used or are they all about the same quality wise?

this will probably lead to a Ford vs. Chevrolet discussion lol
I prefer Zap brand and I have tried just abuot all of them over the years. I really like Satellite City HotStuff, but the bottles are awful. They clog in between glue joints sometimes, even when you are careful to not get them near wood with kicker on it.

I cant tell the difference myself between different brands of CA, but i prefer to use Bob Smith Industries (BSI) CA mainly because i like their bottles. I have tried most others, but keep going back to BSI. I have even poured CA from other brands into the BSI bottles just so i could use the stuff up. I like the long narrow tip that comes on the BSI bottles.....Gene

I personally like the Towerhobbies "built it" brand, and for the same reasons as gene too. I like the shap of bottle and how easily the long applicator tips fit this particular bottle.

I've tried most but always preferred ZAP products. That is all I use from CAs to Epoxy.
