Tungsten Chod Beads are available in 2 different bores: Low Bore – these have an internal bore that has been designed for use on monofilament. High Bore – use with skinned hooklinks, leadcore leaders and leadfree.
The beads offer just the right amount of grip to hold in position the line or leader, so there’s no need to use a section of 0.5mm silicone to act as a stop. The Chod Bead can simply be slid to the position you want to allow for the nature of the lake bed or any weed present.
Covert Tungsten Chod Beads are supplied on wire sprigs for ease of threading them onto your line or leader. The tapered profile of the bore ensures that the bead will pass cleanly over any leader knots, ensuring that heli-rigs constructed with this bead allow the bead and hooklink to pull off, separating from the terminal tackle in the event of a cut-off.
They potentially improve consistent presentation in several ways. For instance, by using these as stop beads above (or either side) of a Chod Rig you can easily balance the end tackle so the rig settles gently over the spot and create improved hooking potential by using a couple set a short distance apart (instead of the traditional running chod).
The High Bore version can also be threaded onto the Chod hook section itself, then pushed down over the swivel (or Kwik Lok) as a replacement for tungsten putty. A particularly useful feature if the water you are fishing contains Crays.
Covert Tungsten Chod Beads are manufactured with the densest tungsten polymer compound available.
