I apologize for the multiple sizes and colors that are out of stock. I've had a much longer delay from my bead factory than originally anticipated. I've asked for an accelerated production schedule and I'm hoping to have all my beads back in stock by the middle of March. Thanks for your patience and support.
50 beads per bag.
These are top quality tungsten beads at a great price with small slots to increase weight.
We label the beads the size that they actually are while most dealers just round them up to the half mm size. What that means is our 2.3mm bead is another seller's 2.5mm and our 2.8mm is another seller's 3mm bead etc. 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.
The beads are of consistent size and the holes are centered and consistent. I’ll be buying more.

Good beads, inconsistent hole size
Hole in bead is inconsistent, some of my size 16 hooks would not go through on about 15 of the 50 pack.

These beads are great. I've caught countless fish this season using jig hooks and slotted beads. You won't find a better deal either.

top quality beads
bulk slotted beads are hide to find bulk slotted beads that arnt complete junk are even harder to find. These beads are top quality and accurate to size i will definitely be back for more when i need some or a new color.
i purchase the silver and anodized orange which are awesome looking on a sexy walts and ive caught many fish on them.

I know it may seem odd to say, after all we are talking about bead heads but these are probably the highest quality beads I’ve used.
