Question Tuffleye or Clear Cure Goo?

To the forum readership:
I've been away from tying for a few years. Have read a little about Tuffleye and Clear Cure Goo. Has anybody tried using both? Any preference between the two?
Any safety issues with viewing the curing light? Any type of safety glasses required?
I don't like dealing with 5 minute epoxy...and don't particularly care for the epoxy yellowing over time.
Concerned about the light as the last time I tyed(tied?) I didn't need reading glasses. But, I do now! Grumble, mumble. It bites to get old.

i've had some bumps while using tuffleye. tackiness, yellowing.
CCG is half the price. i would give that a shot but your best bet is to prob stick with epoxy unless you're tying 100's of epoxy flies
as far as i know there are no harmful effects to using TF. I find the light a little bothersome but my eyes can be sensitive
