Very heavy beads. They get your fly down for sure! With the slot though, they become easily off-centered while tying, potentially leaving the slot exposed and the bead crooked. Just requires attention.
These beads work great on TMC 200 type hooks (I use Eagle Claw L052 hooks which is the same design) without having to bend open the the hook and then resetting it, which could weaken the hook. I use them exclusively for my heavier patterns I want to get down quickly.
Overall I've been pleased with these. They are heavy but I like these when I want to get my fly down quickly. I haven't seen any of the quality issues others have commented on. I would definitely buy again.
