Believe it or not, more and more players are opting for the super glue method.
And, they are finding it superior to pinning. I myself have a bad crack in my
B-flat clarinet. It was pinned, but the pin didn't really perform
satisfactorily. I endorse the super glue approach, as do many players.

Good luck!
