Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great beads I used these to weigh down nymphs to streamers and these beads make them sink like a rock. I typically use a indicator when fishing a fly that has a tungsten bead head on and it get my fly to the depth I want to be successful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as advertised! If you’re looking for something roundish, tungsteny, and beady, this is definitely the product for you! Great for tying weighted flies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly made Imperfect beads can be a real pain when tying small flies. I’ve been using these on #20 pheasant tails and each one has been exactly perfect.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Black beads don't look like photo In the picture the black color looks like a matte black. What I received was very shiny, more of a gun metal color really. That's the only reason I didn't recommend the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great to use on zonkers I like to use the tungsten beads on my zonkers. The 1/8" black head pairs well with a size 8 or 10 streamer hook. The tungsten beads helps get the streamer style fly down quickly in the water column. I recommend using these beads over lead wrap.
