Bass Pro Shops XPS Offset Round Bend Hook
Points bend over.
I haved used these hooks for about a year. I have had the points bend over a few times now. I always have a file with me to re-sharpen them. They are inexpensive, but I know I have missed fish because of the weak points. I fish in Florida where any bite could be a 10 pounder. I am now replacing them with a more reliable worm hook.

XPS Offset Hooks
These hooks are excellent for the price, and do what they are mean to do - catch fish! The only (minor) negative I have found is that the red hooks tend to scrape a bit easily, showing the bronze underneath. Other than that, these hooks perform as expected.

As good as any hook from any MFG at any price. The ratings people would call this a BEST BUY !!!!!

I tried a pack of the XPS 2/0 size because they were on sale.
Have to say that I was disappointed. The points were plenty sharp out of the pack but do not stay that way. Instead, they roll over very easily, sometimes even after hanging up on weeds. While I did catch fish, several times I found that the hook points were gone when I unhooked the catch.
This was not a matter of heavy use. They were new hooks fresh out of the pack.
For hooks that stay sharp, look elsewhere.
