That looks terrible! Loads of metal and zero gape, would no be confident using that, it goes against everything Iíve learnt over the years.

ive been using them since they came out.. for bottom baits (wafters) i basically no knot the hook on to braid with a micro bait swivel and one of the stoppers above that. no need for kickers or sleeving. the hook holds are incredible. i was a little off put by the small gap between point and eye but they do the job just fine.. awesome hook.

** hard to sharpen as the file hits the eye**

That rig looks snazzy with the knots instead of beads Ken, but the gape of the hook looks really closed off with the aggressive bend towards the eye?

They certainly look aggressive from the images.

Just as sharp as the muggas.

Had a good look at these at the Brentwood show. For me they are too aggressive in terms of the bend near the eye. IMO it closes the gape too far. To be fair the guys were saying that the bend is to remove the need for a kicker. That makes sense to a point, but these aren't for me.

Are they actually £2.50 each or is it just a fancy packet with two at the front and 8 more behind?!
