Poor quality materials and tools are destined to discourage beginner and experienced tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.
Fly tyers can be masters at making things complicated!

Dunno what really is in the Flexament. Tolulene does concern me, but if it is in Flexament, I haven't seen any ill effects thus far. However, I do keep it capped with a bodkin through the plastic inside top and only take that off when coating threads or materials. When I'm done, the bodkin is removed and the regular top put back on. I get allergic breathing and skin reactions to a lot of glues and thus far haven't had a problem with Flexament.
Hunters Angling sells both Flexament and Thinner at reasonable prices and the 4:1 ratio of Thinner to Flexament is about right.

Is it allowed in Canada, does anyone know?
Yes, and it's a very popular product. I use it all the time however I'm not sure about any health issues that the product may cause.
