Frantz now has a "try before you buy" program that's great. They'll send you two rods of your choice with your order so you can try them out before investing.

Beaded Kumihimo Bails

Does anyone have a good source for slide on bails for beaded kumihimo? Most of the ones I've seen have a hole too small for the beaded kumi.

Many thanks,
