Owner TwistLock Spring On Shank - $2.49
This hook features Owner's unique TwistLOCK "Spring-On-Shank" attached to the hook's eye for incredible "non-slip" bait-holding power when fished in grass for hard-hitting bass. Perfect for weedless-style Carolina or Texas Rig'n. The nose of the worm is "permanently" secured by screwing it onto the TwistLOCK coil spring before the final positioning of the hook point. Hook's "open" gap with parallel point allows for more positive and effective hook sets. Features include a standard, all-purpose forged wire shank, Super Needle Point, and black chrome finish.
Comments: I feel like Owner is pretty close with this hook but as-is I am not a fan. Owners Spring Lock system is the only spring keeper system that actually works. The gap on this hook is not wide enough for most bait profiles, and the profiles of lures that this actually work for are to slender for the spring lock system. Maybe if they threw this on a straight shank round bend or widened the gap and offset the current configuration.

Comments: This hook is a must have for deep cover. Plastics stay put and last longer. I never go fishing for bass or pike without them.
