This Weighted Twistlock hook employs the same hook as the 5132 Twistlock, but also features a non-movable weight attached to the shank. The hooks added weight helps to sink or swim the bait into the strike zone. With its Twistlock Centering-Pin-Spring (CPS is patent pending), the bait can be permanently secured by inserting the pin in the center of a soft plastic, which can then be screwed on the Twistlock coil spring to rig perfectly everytime! Ideal for weedless style fishing without having to add a separate weight. Great for skipping or pitching into deep cover. Open gap allows for more positive hook sets. Features include a 30-degree eye-bend, XXX-strong forged shank, Super Needle Point, and black chrome finish.
Comments: The 5/0-1/8oz is perfect for Flukes and Caffeine Shads (4" and 5"). I find the hook heavy enough to sink the bait, but light enough to suspend after jerking it.

Comments: Lures like Swim Senkos and Swimmin Super Flukes swim true with the weighted shank. The Twistlock holds the lure tip securely in place strike after strike.
