I've been using trig hammers for slip d rigs and the only issue i have ever had was hooking into a tree branch that came down in a storm, was putting maximum pressure to get it moving and eventually pulled free

Opened the hook out a bit but still didn't break it, even the hook point didn't turn

I used Nash fangX hooks for a while and they worked perfect rarely ever got a hook pull.
I love the mechanics of the Slip d and its reseting properties works really well. Im gonna try a long shank slip d this up and coming year for scientific purposes . Got the ESP trig hammer hooks to try, they do seem a bit thinner than the nash ones use size 5s. I just realized the comments about the trig hammer damn, the pattern looked awesome.
Im gonna give them a try non the less.

Funnily enough I quite like the fact that Korda hooks seem a little softer as they are easier to sharpen. But agree that out of the packet their regular range are not as sharp as most others.

A slip rig gives great separation, leaving the hook in the mouth longer.

I prefer a long shank hook to exagerate this effect.

. . .agree - Muggas do not die! Decent gauge as well so will take the Jag diamond file to extend their useable life . . .

Rarely, if ever use any other hook these days . . .

I have the same problem with Trig hammers, they seem blunt when you reel them in after just 1 night, it's happened on different venues as well.. My other hooks are still sharp, I love the pattern but can't keep them sharp

I found Korda hooks were terrible, they did not hold any sharpness for long, and were often not as sharp as other makes straight out of the packet.

I used Kurvs at Nazeing when I pinched a rig off a mate. I got a couple of missed takes, so retied same rig with a Gardner Mugga. From missed takes, (or odd bleeps), the next cast in the same spot produced a big 20 mirror.
My mate also had odd bleeps on his rigs on the Kurvs, and could not get fish despite fishing exactly the same. He switched to ESP hooks and started landing fish.

I played around at home, and with a 3oz lead was able to lift the rig and lead off my desk with the point on my thumb, the Korda hooks simply were not sharp enough.
With Gardner hooks and Daves choice of ESP hooks, the hook penetrated and became too painful to lift, long before the full weight of the lead was felt.

From then on I have never used a Korda hook, including the specially sharpened Kamakura hooks, I simply do not trust them.

With both Gardner and ESP hooks I have had multiple fish on one hook, they hold their sharpness.

Only hook Iíve ever had snap was a Krank, twice. Both on lilly stems, not good. I liked the pattern at the time so went onto the Krank X and never had the same problem.

Now using trig hammers and havenít had any of the point issues raised on here, I do give them a run over with a file myself though.

Iíve had kranks, blunt out the pack, points roll over after every fish and straighten when snag fishing. The pattern is great just feel they need to sort out these issues

If you go for the kranks then check every hook out the packet.I had a krank snap on me when unhooking a fish,when I checked it the hook was a lighter grey colour than the rest.The korda rep said it had probably missed part of the strengthening process.Thats the one and only issue I have had with korda hooks

Perfect thanks mate I do like the kamakura hooks aswell because the water I do most of my fishing (not all) isnít a runs water so ever fish counts. For other waters Iíll use the normal krank hooks.

I do like the look of a krank hook on a slip d it definitely looks the part
