The VMC "Ike Approved" Heavy Duty Weighted Swimbait Hook was designed with the help of 2003 Bassmaster Classic Champion and 2006 Angler of the Year, Michael "Ike" Iaconelli. Equipped with several key innovations that make it one of the easiest and most effective weighted swimbait hooks to fish, Ike positioned the weight perfectly towards the eye of the hook, to enhance the action, maintain stability, and maximize castability of this hook system. The unique keel shape of the weight will also help your swimbait track back to the boat straighter than traditional weighted swimbait hooks. Its extra wide gap and super sharp point allow you to rig any size and shape of swimbait, while also increasing your hook-up ratio. The tapered, locking spring is also easy to rig, and holds any size soft plastic in place for a perfect swimming action every time. It also allows you to easily add or remove your swimbait without damaging it, so you can get the most out of every bait, and change out colors as quickly as possible. The product of 200 years of hook making experience and decades of tournament experience, the VMC "Ike Approved" Heavy Duty Weighted Swimbait Hook is designed to take your swimbait fishing to the next level.

From: Richard: MOUNTAINSIDE NEW JERSEY
Comments: Positives: keel design is nice and comes through weeds well. Hook is super sharp. Negatives: The biggest problem is that the hook bends too easily and the spring lock will break off. I bent one hook on a snag and bent another hook on a fish. Never had that happen with my Owner twistlock hooks. Over-all, the design is good but the quality of the spring lock and hook are bad. I don't recommend these hooks!

Comments: nice swimbait hook, the 4/0 is perfect for a Gambler EZ Swimmer. The hook is extremely sharp and the keel sinker is designed well to minimize grass fouls
