Comments: for most of my treble hook lures i use the bill lewis set-lock hooks. that being said i do use these hooks on all my walk the dog lures. fish slap at those quite often and you will hook more fish with this regular bend extra wide gap style hook. you can not beat the price. i sharpen them a little bit before i put them on my lure but other than that they are great, very strong.
Comments: Like most of us, I switch out my crankbait trebles... This hook has become a great compromise between quality, price & function for me... The extra-wide 'bite', strong steel, & extra short shank (similar length as KVD triple grips) provides near perfect function. The only thing that would be better is if it had 'in-line' technology, but not that big a deal. At 28 cents a hook the price is tough to beat... & offering a #3 size is priceless... The compromise comes in because they are not very sharp. If you do the fingernail test they will roll right off, no bite. I hit the tips with my Berkeley battery-operated sharpener & they're as sharp as my Gami's etc. I still use mustads, owner, gami etc for specific things, but this works better than anything they offer currently for 80% of my replacements, at least when a short-shank is called for... The only hook that would knock this one off for me would be the Excalibur short-shank hooks they put on their cranks. Sharper & 'in-lin
e', but they don't sell them, only on lures... I think there's a big window of opportunity for one of the upper-end companies to go ahead & hit the nail on the head with a similar hook than this with some upgrades. The Gami magic eye hooks aren't as short, have a more narrow bite & are little heavier guage than even 1x strong. They look good, but this hook makes more sense to me. I have the expensive ones, but keep opting for this one until something better comes along...
