Araldite or similar epoxy does the job.

I've used polyballs and rig tubing for various applications and the fit is usually so tight, they didn't really need gluing? Just a thought.

Not sure but i believe that superglue is water soluble so will only last for a limited time in wet/ damp conditions.
