If I'm in a hurry then I use hot glue. I hate the strings too, but I do my best to not leave strings on the bows.
I do love the holding power of E6000 (I've mentioned that) but I just can't keep it from hardening in the tube. I'd keep using it if it stayed pliable.

I use sooo little of it but it does have a strong odor.
