This is the ideal bead for the Umpqua Competition Series C400Bl Jig Hook. The slot on these beads allows them to pass easily over tight hook gaps while increasing the amount of weight per bead. With the increased use of smaller jig style hooks for general and competition fishing, the slotted tungsten bead is a must for these hooks. Sold in quantities of 10 so you do not have a ton of money tied up in beads you will never use.

Great Product, beads work perfectly with the Hanak Competition Hooks. I get less snags with these hooks and beads. Hookups are great with a large percentage of top lip hooks.

Fit well on jig head hooks and appear to be well made. Some older tungsten beads would loose their color - these have held up well.
