    Default Fox Tungsten Mainline Sinker & Korda No-Trace Beads compatibility?

    Does anyone know if the Fox Tungsten Mainline Sinkers happen to be the correct diameter to work with the Korda No-Trace Beads? I like the Korda system but don't like their tapered sleeves.

    They are a LOT more robust as well. I found the korda ones split a lot

    Exactly what I was hoping to hear, thanks Kapscarper!

    The Korda tapered beads perishing/splitting is the reason why I want to try the Fox version.

    Thanks for the suggestion - I've been using some Gardner line stops, but the bead needs a slight squeeze in some pliers before use. These sound ideal, especially if tungsten too...

    Not sure if they have changed now but I brought them when they first come out and mine didn’t sink when put in water!

    Yeah they aren't the heaviest things about and on their own do struggle to break the surface film. But no different to the other kinds of the same thing
