Get you a pack of these. No bead Counter needed. grin

No weight to them...they are plastic and work great.

Highly recommend them Robert!

Go pick up some alligator clips from Walmart or an auto parts store. They just "crimp on", pretty self explanatory (just put the cord in the end and crimp with pliers thumb).

Put some shrink tubing on the paracord, crimp it on, and then use the shrink tubing over it for a cleaner look.

Thanks for the tip. Just got one coming. I can remember getting to the dock once at Ray Roberts with what a thought was a 25 sand bass limit, only to discover as I was taking them off the stringer and putting them in the ice chest I had 28. Could have been a bad day with a game warden there.

I built the one above myself...not that tough. There are several YouTube videos out there. I put a different color every 5th bead...makes it quicker to count them up wink

Golfing bead counter is very convient as it is shorter, 10 beads. Count to one end and reverse. After the last thump stow it! $5.00

Thanks for the idea Duck_Jerky. I put together 2 in about 30 minutes. Much easier with the snap than with an alligator clip. Got the snaps at WalMart, 2 for $1.97. I made a few with the alligator clip and have broken a bead or two on them. These will be much easier to replace a bead that breaks, if so inclined.

Looks good. I did not even tie the knot at the bottom of mine...I just pull the bead down within about 1" of the end wink
