My favorite is whichever the LHS has on sale that week.

But I like the name "Zap" best

I like Jet. But all work best when they're fresh.

I prefer ZAP for CA when it's needed. My real preference is Tite Bond II and use CA as little as I can.

I have good luck with the Lonestar brand. It has a long life if you keep it in the freezer. Let it warm up before using. By the look of the label I think it is Bob Smith with a Lonestar label.

Super Glue

Loctite CA

ZAP

Bob Smith

Whatever is around.

CA is CA.

I just don't use it that much.

I actually like the very small tubes I get at Target. They come four to a pouch. I pop one open, use it, then throw it waway. I then have three fresh ones available for use a few months latter when I need it again.

I doubt I will be buying CA at a hobby shop for a very long time.

That's about how I feel. I usually buy either Great Planes or Zap because that's what is available at my LHS . I can't tell any difference,(except price, Zap is twice as much as GP) everything I've used it on is still stuck together, and I generally use it on most everything, except when I want epoxy.

I have been using Great Planes brand.
Reasonably priced and works well.
I prefer ZAP but I am unwilling to pay the premium price.

I purchased some ca on ebay once ( dont recall the brand and didnt reconize it either ) the price was ok but it was no good crap. All the name brands have done well for me. A few of the "private lable" LHS brands have not been very good.

i like glue... i've tried 'em all... my favorite CA is Balsa USA. cheaper than Zap, kicks really fast.

i have been OK with tower medium, but the thick takes forever to kick, and the thin is too thin and runs everywhere,,
