bead quality and utility.
What the first reviewer said. But since I find them harder than conical relieved beads to get a hook inserted, I'm going back to the old style. I get something of the desired weight distribution with conical relieved beads by tying in a bent end of lead or copper wire on the hook back, the wire bent end jammed in the bead opening to cock it so a little more of the mass is on the hook back side. The wire thus also locates the bead firmly without glue.
