I've been using these two adhesives interchangeably for a while now, but I'm just about out of Hob-E-Tac and wondering whether to buy more. The Aleene's Fast Grab Tacky Glue seems to be a pretty good substitute, especially since I haven't noticed much difference between how it behaves and the Hob-E-Tac.
But once I started paying attention, I noticed three important differences:
- The Hob-E-Tac comes with a brush on the cap;
- The Fast Grab Tacky Glue is thicker (has a higher viscosity); and perhaps most important...
- The Hob-E-Tac retails for about $3.50 per ounce versus the Fast Grab Tacky Glue which retails for about $.81 per ounce.
I think I'm going to stick with the Fast Grab Tacky Glue (see what I did there? %^) and use an old brush if I need one.
Has anybody else had any experience with both products? Is there anything I'm missing? Let us know in the comments!
