Not sure if I can get this completely right with words...so I'll add a pic or two.

So I found-out that the hole in E size beads are the perfect size for what I need.  Also, most of the time they are just-plain the perfect size.  I ran into a slight problem with one project.  While the hole and diameter are still perfect, they are a bit long for what I need.  Are there beads out there that are pretty much E beads, but not as long?

Kind of like this:

Not necessarily as thin as that, but thinner than most E beads are.

Here is a link if you haven't heard about them before:

Have you tried doing a search for other 5/0 beads? I've never used e beads, so I don't know much about the shape, but I know most beads are assigned a size based on the hole size, so if that's the hole size you need, you might find a variety of shapes and styles within that selection. There may also be some variation in the beads' overall size, since the wall thickness might vary.
