These are being shown right now at iCast in Florida. These hooks are designed by the pros , they have the sharpest hook every made where they litterally had a company which creates surgical needles that claim you literally can set the hook with 50% the effort. Also not to take away from strength as this is always the fine line between the two they use the highest grade steel carbon which they have tweaked and tempered to resist any give.

Loss Less fish !

That's pretty cool, the sharpened point is not much different than a piercing needle or a syringe (though obviously those are both hollow). I'll have to get a hold of a few of these and see how they stand up against my current favorite, gamakatsu.

My only complaint is that flash only sites really get on my nerves.

The look sharp...

Now if we could get that sharpness in some big muskie hooks I'd be happy!

They looks good but i don't know if they'll stand in front of my Owner ST46 when it deals with Sea Bass

Honestly , theres no question these hooks will provide good hooksets , i mean if you do that math a 60 gram pressure ratio to penetrate almost any surface can prove very benefitial

Owner hooks are actually the weakest hooks on the market , i typically try and avoid them at all cost . i cant tell you how many ive had their points bend / dull down for me .. and even had the shafts break on me ...

Mustad hooks are definetly the most resistent thus far to point dulling , there really truly isnt a sharp hook like these ones available ...

With names like Skeet Reese , Shaw Grigsby supporting the product its going to have some strong merits to support them and ofcourse these are tournament pros who have involved their time in the development and testing. Right now its the talk of icast and its surely to be a breakthrough in hooks .


btw iCast is showcasing some fantastic products to the market , including a fishing kayak with alot of VERY cool extras some people here may be in the market for if you want something portable , and fishable .. these things have rod locker setups to hold rods upto 9ft !!

I'm glad you mentioned Mustad, i was after an opinion on them, it all looks like decent gear.

Martin I've also had the owner shafts snap on me! Granted I was snagged to a tree or something but I would have expected it to bend before snapping off.. Anyway Gamakatsu has never given me any problems. Ill see about finding some of these hooks and compare the two.

Mustad and VMC saltwater 4x trebles are my top choice on my lures.

Dave Mercer is also backing those lures Martin.

You didnt go to icast did you?

I've tryed various brand of treble hooks and i've never get any kind of problems with the ST46 model and when they are not strong enough i put some ST56 or ST66 which are normaly used for tropical fishing with those hooks i've never had problem. I 've tryed some mustad and VMC and i encounter those kind of problems but it was maybe cause of the model which was not addapted to my kind of fishing.
I use to go fishing sea bass with hard baits top water or not and you have to be very directive if you do'nt wan't your fish heading straight in the middle of stones.
I'd like to try some Gamakatsu but i don't know which one to choose as there are not available in France.

to be clear ive never used the owner treble hooks only the big single hook worm hooks with the bend. For texas rigged plastics.

I've never use the big single hooks owner so i can't speak on this one. :pardon:
For plastics lure i use gamakatsu when i've got some.
I've used some owner single hooks (cuting points)to go surf fishing and they are really sharp but not as strong, they bent quite often and i m not happy of this.
But to be honest i think it's quite difficult to find the perfect hooks for your technique when you see the number of references you can found on the net.
It could maybe be interesting to open a topic on the kind of lure we use regarding the kind of fish and the kind of technics. :scratch_ones_head: :pardon:

I'm agree with Pierrot.
My prefered hooks are Owners St-41, St-46 and st-66 (Not St-31 because they are too weak)
They have a very good resistance to corrosion when we fishing in salt water.
