The esp ones are very good and when on the hook are less obtrusive

Don't know why, but all these beads seem to slip when i use them when distance casting finally. I gave up using German rigs because of that. But maybe the ESP ones should work better.

A packet of float stops cut in half does the job. 1/2 the price and double the amount.

ESP grip stops much better than the bank tackle and gardner ones haven't had one slip yet.

Been using Fox hook beads which werenít too bad on barbless but with a micro barb they seem to stretch going over it making them pretty much useless. Any ideas or suggestions?

I suppose putting them in hot water before pushing on might help.
