Eagle Claw Lazer Sharp Wide Gap Worm Hook - L092
Way better hooksets
I have been using these hooks with the Yum 5" Houdini Shad in the 4/0 size and my hooksets have improved by about 9 out of 10 strikes. The lightweight design lets this lure (Houdini Shad) stay on the surface when I want it there and I believe the action improved as well, i'm not sure if a change in hook design could do that, but it seems to "twitch" better. Very sharp and an excellent hook! I have been using Eagle Claw hooks exclusively for about 25 years and in my opinion they cant be beat.

I've used these hooks for as long as I can remember fishing. I always get a good hook in the fish, and hardly ever loose a fish while using them. Extremely sharp and the light wire is great when using lighter line. I wish bass pro carried these in 1/0. On the down side the points usually bend when you get hung up in wood but they are so cheap you can just get a new hook and not have to worry about sharpening them.

I bought a pack of these because they were on sale. Like others said, they start out sharp, but the point bends waaay too easily when it comes into contact with structure. These hooks are not meant for heavy tackle, because they bend easily. I guess they'd be useful if you're on a budget and targeting little fish. Bass Pro's XPS hooks are a better investment.

These hooks are like surgical grade needles. Super sharp and very easy to set. Be careful when using them because they are very sharp. The only problem I have had with the hook is holding bait that is soft. I have great luck catching catfish using mackerel with this hook. It gets into their flesh like nothing I have ever seen.
