Sasame Clear Cross Beads are designed to rotate the snood around the rig body and are semi-transparent and they offer reduce visibility to the fish in clear waters, making them less shy of the rig. They are made with two holes in them, one vertical for running the main trace body line through and one horizontal across the bead close to the bottom, for running the snood line through. The bead can either be left sliding up and down the rig body or secured with a float stop, crimp or in most cases secured with glue. Sometimes you can add a dust bead to assist rotation. The snood is secured at the back of the bead with a stop knot and/or glue with a micro bead in some cases. The different sizes allow for variable diameters of line to pass through them and can be used on paternoster or flowing rigs.
