Gamakatsu Swivel Shot Hooks
Great product but it needs toe available with smaller hooks maybe overall size needs to be available in smaller size.

Just got these in my order. Went out to try them and promptly caught 4 small bass. But, with each fish there was the drop shotters nightmare - tangles and twists galore, as much or more than with the regular tied on hook. I like the tie on to the swivel, and the easy way to clip on the sinker line, but the rig produces a 10 minute tangle and knot up every time. Another problem occurs if you accidentally crank up the rig thru the first small rod guide, due to the design its hard to get it pulled-pushed back thru the guide.
I'm a Gammy hook fan, and will only use their hooks, but the jury is still out on this one.

This hook is worth every penny!!!
These new hooks bring drop shot fishing to a new level. No more guessing on whether the hook is tied properly, the swivel does all the work for you. The octopus hook is an automatic hook set. When changing out your weights - it is much easier. With these features in mind - they are really worth every penny!!

Great Drop Shot Hook!!
The first thing I noticed when drop shotting was the line twist. Gamakatsu has the solution! This hook with a swivel eliminates line twist...and you can change your leader quickly and easily. As always with Gamakatsu...super sharp!
