Good way to explain it.
I do have plenty of rigs ready tied for when I do need to change the hook, although I have found Muggas do keep their point for more than one fish.

The only thing I can think of is that a bent over point after a fish is hitting bone is has gone in so deeply.

The other thing I have found is that most hook points will bend over if you hit swan mussels or rocks on the bottom.

Iíll never understand this line of thinking. A hook has done its job once you have one in the net. You should never expect to be able to re-use a hook after a capture. Sometimes it happens, and thatís a bonus, but you cannot expect it.

I fish a lot of canals and the fish can have very hard mouths. Often the hook point is bent over after catching a carp.

Before the change to the mugga, I used the fang x but the moment Nash introduced the pinpoint series I stopped using these hooks. They are worse than the muggas.

This are my findings...

What are you doing to them?
Sticking them in rocks?

Gardner hooks are one of the toughest out there. I test hooks before I use the brand, I would rate Gardner Muggas as one of the best on the market, very durable, good points that hold their sharpness.

Really? Muggas have some of the most durable points I've come across. Maybe try the continental version?

it are good hooks but the point of the hook is weak.
I've got frequently bent hook points when the fish hard hard mouths.

Never used them but after a losing a few on the kamakura I fancy giving them ago. Is mugga a classic pattern as I see mugga wide gape etc. Also with the Jason hayward sharpened ones do they effect them negatively as in one fish hooks etc

Muggas are the only hooks I use now. Slip d or german rig for bottom baits or wafters and ronnie for pop ups

Brilliant hooks. Suited to everything apart from stiff materials for which you need a chod hook. I use them for slip D's and Ronnies. I also use the IQ D rig and use Gardner chod hooks for that. I was losing a few fish on a different hook pattern. Went back to the Mugga and since then 9 bites, 9 landed.
