Default Super 'Phatic Glue

I read the Product Review on this in the March 2014 issue of Fly RC.
It sounds like wonderful stuff.
Is there anything else like it on the market?
Another way to ask, is it available under a different name/manufacturer?

Thanks for the help,

I just used this on my build of 40% Pitts. A couple of comments. It does not soak in like CA does. If you have tight fitting joint you'll find the glue runs around the joint but does not penetrate it. I noticed this in several of my stringers that I needed to replace. Although the glue held the stringer when I popped it free I could see no glue had pentrated deep into the joint. So, using this glue I treat as I would normal wood glue and glue both joints before joining them. With CA I typically assembel the parts, line them up and then go through and hit every joint. I did get annoyed that the aluminum nozzle that comes with the bottle clogged long before the glue bottle was empty. I started to remove the applicator and store it in a cup of water after every use to avoid it getting clogged. Jerry.

The glue and little tip work well for making glue drop rivets.

I like Super Phatic for making wing skins, but I don't use it for much else.
