The Gamakatsu 4X Strong Treble Tin is a very solid gamefish hook, that's what I bought it for. In spite of the relatively thick wire, the points are extremely sharp: premium Gamakatsu quality. The reason that I give only 4 stars is the rather long shank - and therefore relatively narrow gaps. For very powerful fish I prefer shorter shanks in relation to the gap width. But overall a treble of excellent quality.
