this hook really helps you catch more fish. if you wana use a fluke i will get it down deep and let you get to the spots you usually can't get to. it also helps a lot with the swim baits. i really like this hook and will keep using it.
that's a good way to describe them....When you need more distance or more depth...we use these.. Of course, I use them for stripers on Cape Cod...never had a problem with them at all. They are plenty strong for 30-40 pound fish on heavy drag. I love them.
Nothing surprising about the excellent hooks themselves, just the usual ultra sharp Gammy standard. The weight placement is perfect if you want your lure to glide down with a horizontal flutter instead of the nose dive that results from having the weight placed further forward.
