From the Flytying Materials Manufacturer MFE of Italy comes these revolutionary Tungsten Half beads.
They are literally "half beads" - which clip together to give you multiple colour combinations for use on bead head fly patterns.
Even when a single colour finish is desired, these half beads are applied to the hook ONE AT A TIME- they easily fit a broader range of hook brands, models and sizes not possible with the standard beads.
This choice of hooks and bead sizes will allow for an expanded range of profiles available to you.
Their innovative interior design allows them to 'mate' once applied to the hook shank which locks them in place preventing the flat faces from sliding on each other – establishing a nice clean line between colours and a nice round spherical bead.
It is not necessary now to have a larger tapered rear hole or drilled out portion as with the standard bead in order to accommodate the hook bends which allows us to have the smaller bore throughout the entire bead.
All the colours are anodized into the beads so no fear of colours chipping off!
The beads are available in sizes 2.4 mm, 2.8 mm, 3.2 mm and 3.8 mm -10 halves per pack so two packs equal 10 full beads.
Remember that you do need to match the same size of half bead to half bead
