You do get different quality beads. Some will glow from a few minutes and others a few hours. I have recently ordered 10 000 X 12mm beads that are supposed to glow for a few hours.

I use glow beads for protecting knots and keeping skirts from pulling over the hook as well as any night fishing or deep water fishing as an attractant.

Even if it only glows for 10 minutes, it's better than nothing at all.

Hey Bennie ,

When we were at HITW , we just thought we would try it ,

Unfortunately i think we used normal glow beads & not some of teh brands that you mentioned etc ...

We heated up the bead & put it in a glass of tap water & within a minute it was gone ...
lost it's glow ...

Perhaps when you get your beads you can do a test for us !!!

Personally i wud rather go for a glow stick until i get some good beads !!!

Cheers

What made you do that? Heat it up or light it up? How hot did you make it?
I got beads from different suppliers at home, I'll try it tonight.

I think there is only one company supplying soft ones. But I cant name them as I am not 100% sure you are talking about theirs. But I'll check tonight.

I think time does play a part, but within reason. If you flash the bead in the light for 2 seconds it wont glow as bright or as long as if you do for 2 minutes. 2 hours would/should make no difference. I'll do some different experiments.
