Many lost fish
I have been using these hooks exclusively for a year now, they work great on swimbaits, worms, etc. I have had a huge percentage of lost fish, did some research and it seems the pros recommend straight shank looks for a higher hookset rate.
The hooks make the bait swim flawlessly, but don't be surprised when the fish magically spit the bait after a long fight.

Good quality hooks
I caught bass on these hooks right out of the package with Yum Ribbontail worms. They bounce off the bottom nicely.

You need some of these things
I fish a river with a lot current. The V. drop hooks get snagged less than traditional jig heads. I've actually seen fish come up and hit the fluke rigged with these things. The jig falling level and not head first is the key.

Good, But Not Great
This is a decent weighted hook, but I purchased the 1/8 oz. 3/0 before the more recent smaller weights were available, like on the Mustad Ultra Points (their weight moves along the shank).
These latter hooks have a smaller profile (especially for heavier weights) and make for a more streamlined presentation. I would not go back to the vertical drop hook.

I have found that the Yum Ribbontail worms go well with this hook due to the size of them. I use a Texas rig and bounce them off the bottom. I have caught many 2-3 pound bass on them from the shore line.
depending on what brand you prefer on swimbaits i assume your talking about. well i use a bit of either water or yum fish attractant in either shad or crayfish to went the bait and the hook to make it easier to slide through the nose of the bait rigging it weedless pulling it all the way up on the hook turning the hook around and pulling ti through the body of the bait and skin hooking it on the other side and you ready to roll
