Purchased 5 colors Hot Red, Steelhead Orange, Shrimp Pink, Bubblegum and Hot Pink. About 95% of the time I fish for Salmon and Steelhead are at the Cowlitz River in Washington State. I had so much success with jigs, cookies and yarn but I had to work for it. When I received my soft beads from X-Factor, I went and tried them out that weekend, the first color I used was Hot Red 12mm under a bobber with a 7ft, 15lb leader, it took me 1 hour at the Cowlitz and I caught two steelheads, a 10lb and a 12lb. It was so effective and easy to use, the package comes complete with bobber stopper and everything you need for your set up. The price was very good and I received mine on time and X-Factor did an outstanding job packing them up. That is all I'm using now are my X-Factor soft beads and I'm using them again this coming Easter Weekend. I am going to try other colors and see if they do the same thing as the Hot Red. Very satisfied with the X-Factor soft beads and I recommend them to all other anglers out there to try them out.
