Eco Pro Tungsten Pro Beads
Eco Pro Tungsten Pro Beads are made from a unique synthetic material that won't shatter like plastic or glass. Six beautiful seal coat colors let you perfectly match your beads with your baits and your Eco Pro Tungsten weights for a perfect presentation. So why beads right? The addition of beads is thought to pique the curiosity of bass much like the rattles of a jig or crankbait might. Unlike the other two baits, soft plastics rarely possess an internal rattle chamber and therefore other methods of creating sound must be sought out. The most common way of creating this rattle is the use of a bead under a sinker - a setup that can be achieved in a number of ways. The clacking sound generated by the force of the tungsten weight coming into contact with the bead is very subtle, yet produces the sound of a creature crawling over rocks. If you've ever heard underwater audio, friction makes mostly a clicking and clacking sound - one that is very accurately imitated by the bead/weight interaction. Eco Pro Tungsten Pro Beads can be added to a number of rigging methods. Carolina Rig, Texas Rig, Punching - simply thread the bead on the line after the weight and fish your technique as you normally would. Some anglers have also expressed their interest in beads as it pertains to line fray and knot strength. Direct contact of the sinker with the knot could be a cause of line fray or breakage in some cases and anglers have remedied this with the addition of a bead to act as a barrier in between.
Eco Pro Tungsten's Pro Beads are very strong and durable due to their synthetic construction and will not crack under the pressure of constant contact with a tungsten sinker. We offer the Pro Beads in two sizes: 6mm and 8mm both available in three color options: Black, Green Pumpkin and Watermelon. 8 per pack.
