Default Weight comparison of a tungsten vs brass bead.

Great thread going on in the Mother Board on the comparative weights of beads for fly construction. This was total new news:

"Hi Maharg,

In reply to your last post. The factor you need to compare the beads is the magical number of approx. 1.31. To convert between brass and tungsten bead sizes, you must divide the brass bead size by 1.31 to find the equivalent tungsten bead size. e.g. a 3 mm brass bead would be equivalent (in mass) to a 2.3 mm tungsten bead."

Brilliant! Now if I could just figure out what type of hook bend was needed ...
