Reviewer: A viewer from New Cumberland, PA US
These are very shiny plated hourglass eyes with a domed, not flat, eye surface. They are perfect for inverted bucktail and streamer ("clouser" style) patterns when you want a bit of flash but maybe not an "eye" on the pattern. One of the most fun uses is to tie the great Edson Tiger patterns using these instead of the hard-to-find or hard-to-make brass tabs on the original patterns. Use the gold Brass Eyes and tie the pattern upside-down on a long shank hook, with the bucktail extending just beyond the hook bend. A contemporary take on great classic patterns that are killer on trout and bass!
Durable and Effective

These machined brass eyes are the perfect combination for streamer patterns fished in areas with rocky bottoms or heavy cover. Also great in saltwater patterns. The brass won't break, chip or lose their color like painted lead dumbbells.
