New powders from Loon Outdoors are an interesting product for fly tyers. Interesting in a way that provides some customization of your flies. The Phosphorescent Fly Tying powder adds glow in the dark properties to your tying cements. The Pearlescent Fly Tying powder adds some flash or sparkle. While the Tungsten Fly Tying powder adds weight.
All of the new fly tying powders are compatible with all Loon cements and UV resins. They are also compatible with other brands of tying cements and UV cured resins. Speaking of resins, Loon has a new UV Fly Tying Kit that includes their UV Clear Fly Finish – Thin, UV Clear Fly Finish – Thick, and UV Power Light.
To help you when mixing , Loon has produced a Mixing Cup that suctions to smooth surfaces and will prevent product from clinging to the cup. As long as the product is cured, it should come away clean.
Here is a video explaining the mixing procedure when using the new powders.
In the near future, FrankenFly hopes to review these new products to provide you with a more in-depth, hands-on analysis.
New Loon Outdoors Website and Giveaways
Today, Loon Outdoors has just released their new website. In my opinion it is professionally designed and I especially like the products section. The smooth icons at the top of this section gives it a nice feel and makes navigation easy.
To celebrate the launch of the new website Loon is providing 4 weeks of giveaways! Go here on Facebook to enter!
