Invisible glue joint?

Hello, everyone.  In repairing stocks that have been cracked thru the wrist..either partially on one side..or thru..My first priority would be for strength..especially if it is to be shot.  And this would include using dowels or threaded brass rods from inside under tangs, etc.
  But what about that thin line left thru checkering?  Even if colored to match wood & touched up later with checkering tool..often there is a shiny line from glass compound.  Is there a product that is just as strong..and yet nearly invisiable after hardening?  Thanks alot!

+1 on the Titebond. I no longer use expoxies for crack repairs.

What version of Titebond wood glue do you use?
Looked at their website and found 4-5 different types:
Titebond original, TitebondII, TitebondIII & more.

I tend to use T-III a lot. I like it for repairs because it is less viscous so it runs deeper into cracks. The open time for clamping and cleanup is a little longer. T-I and T-II grab pretty fast--not necessary for this. They are the ones that tend to leave a yellowish glue line. The glue line for T-III dries darker and is less likely to show on dark woods. Leave it in clamps for a good 24 hours unless it's a nice tight fresh proper joint that hardly needs clamps anyway. Another I like a lot is PPG (powdered plastic resin, Weldwood etc.) that is mixed with water. It's still good glue. You can mix it as thin or thick as you like, dries fairly dark, cleans up with water, and has an all day open time.

Nobody pays much attention to ol' white glue. It's still pretty tough, and the glue dries pretty clear.
