I'm prepared to get some, "check the archives, this comes up all of the time," but I didn't see something that fit my needs.
I'm prepared for Barry to tell me to take a blow torch to the area prior to application, possibly calling me a moron in the process.
These obstacles won't dissuade me from asking though.
I'm looking for some kind of liquid-based adhesive to put down when I replace my traction pad. I've seen Gorilla Glue and Shoe-Goo thrown around as options on other sites, but I'd like the opinions of you banditos.
P.S. Yes, I did consider semen as a liquid-based adhesive so there's no need to ask. It just doesn't have the holding strength when met with water.

Plumbers Goop, 5200, or a high quality silicone adhesive/sealant.

Doesn't 77 loosen up when heated? I use it to adhere sanding disks to sanding pads specifically because you can peel the paper right off the pad while it still warm from sanding.
I use 3m "super 77" and spray an good amount (6+ passes) on the bottom of the pad (none on the board), with a little extra on the kick/wedge area.
De-wax the deck and clean any leftover oils with a rag dipped in rubbing alcohol. Slap on the pad, press and let it sit overnight.
Haven't had any major peel-up problems with this method...but the pad's not so stuck that it tears when you want to peel it back up to re-use it (use a hairdryer to soften adhesive prior to peeling back up). If you do get any unwanted peel-ups, just spray some adhesive on a knife, spread it on the peeled up area and re-stick.
