Slotted beads will slide around the bend of any hook, and they are heavier than countersunk beads because less metal has been removed from the spherical shape. They are also good to use with jig hooks on which the eye is offset at an angle to the shank. 20 beads per package.

Good weight but...

Reviewer: from Arroyo Grande, CA US

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.

The bead for small gap hooks

Reviewer: from Northern, WI US

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.

Very heavy

Reviewer: from AK

Good for jig hooks, some of the beads have rough edges were the slots were cut.

Good for jig heads

Reviewer: from Houston, TX

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.

orange beads

Reviewer: from Maine

Nice beads, the slots allow them to be placed on smaller hooks than is typical without slots, also to make the bend at the eye end of jig hooks. However, the fl. orange is not shiny like the image shows. It appears to be a dull paint. Black nickel beads are shiny.
