Bass Pro Shops XPS Magna O'Shaughnessy Hooks
I like the long straight shank with allows baits to lie flatter and more natural. I was fishing a small pond(2-3 acres). I Texas-rigged a lizard with a bullet weight on his nose. I threw him into about 6 inches of water up at the shoreline, and was just e---a---s---i---n---g it away from the shore, when WHAM---something started heading for deep water with the reel screaming like a banshee----6 pounds 13 ounces-need I say more??

Good all around
You cant Beat this hook for the value. I use these hooks all the time and they last a long time Most hooks like this i have to change out ever 5 to 6 fish to keep a good point I find with the bass pro's its 8 to 10 fish. and for how many you get in a pack for the cost it could be every 3 fish and its still a great value. I find the red ones really bring the fish in on the hard to fish days.

I had constantly spent tons of money on gamakatsu hooks over the years. I had a buddy of mine recommened these hooks and boy am I glad he did. They are as sharp out of the package as any I've ever used and hold their point well. Do yourself a favor and try them out it will save you a lot of money, and you wont be dissapointed.

Alternative to Owner
Finally, an alternative to the expensive Owner hooks I've used for years. Can't tell them from Owners when put side by side. Plenty sharp and I've had no problem with strength. I've now changed over to these hooks for worm fishing and saved a pile of money
