I've been using the Korda ones in green, they keep their shape well and are robust. If you prefer a longer hook extension then shrink tube is better.

I only use pre formed ones on PVA bag rigs (uncoated braid) for some reason and have found these make the rig lethal, keep their shape and are reusable. It says they are designed for longshanks but I have used them with curves etc no problem

You might have to play around with different brands, I have found the Nash and korda ones excellent with long shank hooks but less so with a more normal length shank.

The esp and avid ones are better for the shorter shank hooks, well at least that's what I found.

Only takes a few seconds to re steam shrink tube back into shape. Iíve got some kickers,they do the job intended.

Hi guys,

I wanted to ask if you have experience with hook kickers? How are you liking them and do they keep shape? I notice with shrink tube, at some point the bend shape turns straight. I hope hook kickers solve this.

Thanks!
