See the hook and bead chart in the product photos for information on matching hook size and bead mass.
These are top quality tungsten beads at a great price with small slots to increase weight.
Slotted beads are great for jig hooks but I also use them for straight shanked hooks as well. By inserting lead wire into the slot you can offset the bead to increase hook gap and the hold of the hook while also inverting the fly in the water. The colored beads allow you to add an extra flare or a hotspot to your flies. The 3.8mm beads fit into the FIPS Mouche measuring device so you'll know you're legal if you fish in FIPS governed competitions.
Great beads for the money. True to size. I will continue to buy beads and other fly tying materials from TFF.
Excellent costumer service too!

I appreciate the consistency of these beads, in a pack of 50 I can count on using all 50. They do good work at this fly shop

The Tactical Flyfisher crew is what makes these beads so great to purchase. You might find beads to buy elsewhere, but fear not, Devin has done the research to bring you the most dense, usable, tasty to trout bead in the biz. The people behind the shop don’t take anything lightly, like these tungsten beads! Thanks TF. Fishitup

Slotted Tungsten beads
This is where I buy all my tungsten beads. And hooks. Best deal going, and quick turnaround for fulfillment except for a little gap in inventory during Covid. Keep up the good work Devin. And the training vlogs. Thank you.

I like the consistency of size and weight. After getting my order I weighed and sized them. I wasPleasantly surprised how consistent they were. I have a powder scale which goes to .01gm and the weights were very consistent. Something I have not found with other suppliers.
