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.
I have used these for about 2 yrs and they are great beads. Good color and durability. Fast shipping

These beads are by far the best I’ve ever used

These slotted beads are very reasonably priced for the quality. Slide onto small jig hooks very easily.
I’m sold on them!

Slotted Tungston Beads
I have been using these beads for about a year. I use the 2.0mm, 2.3mm, and 2.8mm in various colors. Great bead. Sure you can find slightly nicer finished beads but at this price nothing compares.

Great Tungssten Slotted Beads
I really like the 50 pack, if I had my way they'd sell 100 packs. While on that topic how about a variety pack of all the slotted, weights and colors. Anyway what makes these good for me is I tie almost 90% jig hooks and these take the bend on the hook with zero effort.

For only pennies more than a 25 pack elsewhere I have 50 beads!
Excellent product and great deal. I'll be getting all my bead here from now on. I also appreciate that I wasn't gouged on the shipping. $3 to ship three packs. Thanks for running your business ethically.

Excellent quality and value
I'm not exactly sure how TFF is offering these high quality beads at a very competitive price, but there's no need to ask questions. They're excellent and affordable, something that is often hard to say in the same sentence when talking about slotted tungsten. Highly recommend. Thx to TFF!!
