10mm & 8mm Beads
10mm & 8mm Beads come in the following styles. Glow in the Dark, UV (Fluorescent), Opaque, Clear, Semi Clear, Matte Surface, Gloss Surface, and Pearlescent Surface. Most Glow beads and Clear Beads are Glossy. Semi Clear Beads have some pigment in the plastic that absorbs part of the light passing through the beads. A Clear bead with a matte surface comes out Semi Clear also.
Glow in the Dark Beads react to UV light that penetrates the water or is perportionally greater on cloudy days or low light conditions. They charge up while you are retrieving and casting them, then their glow is that much brighter below the water or in cloudy water.
These beads have small holes that peg easily.

To make your own painted beads, use a light coat of Nail Polish on a Glo-White Clear bead and add a contrasting spot color. The more light that can get through the thin coat of nail pollish, the more light will come out of the bead.
