I've been very satisfied with these hooks. I like the weight and they seldom hang up. The spiral piece that holds the worm in place is really helpful.They do seem to rust after extended use.

It was hard to learn how to fish with this type of hook, because I am a beginning fisherman. After I realized, I couldn't have any slack in my line, I started to catch a huge amount of fish. I had great bait placement, but if you are fishing these you had better order a lot! They will get caught up on stumps, but you can not beat the control they allow you to have.

Great for jerk shads and flukes
These hooks are really great when rigging up jerk shads and super flukes.
First off, the barbed shank allows you to "spear" the head of the bait without having to thread the entire hook through the baits body. This is a huge advantage with the really soft, bio-degradable plastics being used today.
Second, the hook has a smaller bend to it, so the weight sits closer to the body of the bait unlike some of the wide-gap swimbait hooks that hang so far below the bait. The hook seems to fit the bait better and offers a more natural looking presentation.
Third, the angle of the hook tip is really condusive to a Texas type rigging. When a soft plastic body is rigged Texas style, the hook tip just barely hooks the "skin" on the back of the bait, making hook-sets much easier to reform than with other style worm hooks or swimbait hooks.
The design of this hook is perfect to prevent the destruction of the bait from just rigging it. It's better to let the bass destroy the bait instead!
