The trusty old ESP 5mm rubber beads have been a staple component for helicopter and chod set ups on leadcore since 1999 and now they have been given the heavyweight tungsten treatment with the introduction of Tungsten Loaded beads.
These are four times heavier than the rubber versions (the difference is really noticeable) while still remaining soft and flexible. The three matt colours of weedy green, camo brown and silt grey complement the different ESP leadcore colours perfectly.
Designed to be mounted on leadcore on a short section of 0.5mm silicone tube which is supplied with the beads. This provides a safe set up where the bead can come off the silicone tube and pass over the leader knot in the event of a break-off, releasing the hook link.
Each packet contains 20 beads and a length of 0.5mm silicone tube, available in weedy green, camo brown and silt grey.
