These are top quality tungsten beads at a great price with small slots to increase weight. This light pink shade is the color that competitors seem to be so crazy about these days.
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.
See the hook and bead chart in the product photos for information on matching hook size and bead mass.
Great quality, color options and price. Old patterns will get an upgrade.

Slotted tungsten beads. What can I say? A few things. 1st : fifty good beads cheap!! 2nd : colors not found other places. Not all beads are created the same. These seem to be very consistently made. Definitely recommend and I’ll by again.

Good quality tungsten beads
Not many fly fishing stores carry purple colored tungsten beads so i was glad to have found them on the Tacticalflyfisher website. Having had a chance to look them over in person, I found them to be of high quality. The beads were very consistent in size, shape and color, and the color was very true to the color displayed on the website. I highly recommend these tungsten beads to others!

Metallic Slotted Tungsten Beads
Excellent quality. Coffee is a really nice color. I really like these beads to create variation to fly patterns.
