These beads do the job when tying teasers or fluke rigs. I purchased the green and white beads. They block the teaser from sliding down the hook and the glow is a benefit. I wish they would make one size larger, as they are pretty small.

Small beads used for a fluke rig
  • The slid down 50lb. mono with no issue. More soft than a hard bead
  • I would like to see a larger size and in more colors than green

The image on the display does not provide an accurate enough indication of the size. As such I had to order a number of different size Glow beads. I was finally able to settle on this size. They have been very useful and I have since ordered some more.
