The OMC hook beads are really good for not slipping. If I can't get them I go for the ridgemonkey hook beads and never had an issue with them either. I do find some hooks are worse than others for it depending om size/guage ect, I guess the PTFE coatings don't help either.

The sinking grips you use on hooklinks work as hook beads -grip tight or the stop type beads used on mainline.

The esp ones seem the best that I have tried.
I have serveral types and most slip. I will still use them in a solid bag (or use a multi) but wouldn't trust them with a full blooded chuck.

Thanks all, my sentiments only. i haven't found one yet that doesn't slip. A good friend also uses TA ones. I might have to take a punt on yet another pack of them to try.

Have you tried putting two on the hook back to back. I've has success doing this, not perfect but unless I'm really putting a lot of stress on them they stay put.

I'm content with the nash tungsten hook beads, they don't slip, and if you want to step it up you could look at the esp ones, they won't move at all (except on those thin esp hooks ) All depends on the wire of your hook of course.
