Are CA glues really that strong?

Yes and no; CA glue is an adhesive with an extremely high push-pull strength, but a low shear strength.

How do I choose the right CA glue for a specific application?

The viscosity or thickness of the glue is the primary difference found between CA glues.

Thin CA glues are great for high gloss finishes, inlays, infiltrating pores, and stabilizing fractures.

Medium CA glues are generally used for bonding close-fitting parts, filling small cracks, hobby model building, RC car tire bonding, pen making, and general-purpose repairs.

Thick CA glues are used for bonding, void filling, and hobby model assembly.
