UV Fly finish for floss butts and tinsel tags

Anyone protecting their butts with the stuff?
I assume it'll add another layer of protection from fraying.
I'm apllying one coat of the Loon flourescing UV clear finish to my tags, butts and heads. Seems to keep the colors true. Also love saving time on not having to apply multiple coats of varnish for heads.

Good idea...I usually give the tag and butt a coat of head cement before winding on the body and hackles, but I'll try your trick.

Good looking Undertaker, btw....

That's a great idea.
First read about this in Trey Combs' [classic] book that the cement helps to protect the floss and to brighten the colors.
