Soft Plastic Repair Tool

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever used one of those electric heated wire tools to repair torn soft plastics?  They seem kind of costly for what they are, but if they can make torn soft plastics reuseable, it could pay for itself in short order.  If you've used one, how did do it?  I'm having trouble picturing exactly how it would work.

Or super glue.

The lighter and super glue would both work. You can also use a candle in a base, that way both hands are free.

I have used the lighter, superglue, and candles.  They all have their place, none of which is in the boat on a windy day for a quick fix.

I looked at the unit from Cabela's but decided to go less expensive.  I bought the Power Zap from Bass Pro.  It also works well for putting different colored pincers on craws and for cutting braid.  I'm getting my $18 worth of good from it.
