Mister Twister Keeper Hooks - Weighted
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!

excellent and reliable
i have used this on all kinds of plastics. the only thing i have used them with that has produced is the chigger craw. it's me and not the product. with the exception of a couple times i lost the fish. i didn't realize i had a fish since it was hooked up with about 5 lbs of salad. for the most part when the fish have hit my lure i didn't even really have to set the hook. they hooked themselves. the fish do stay on the hook but i don't have to work at it real hard to remove the hook. which is good for releasing the fish

I've been using Mister Twister for years off and on and I just started useing more swim type baits. I like using these as nuch as any or the other hooks that are designed just for swim baits and the price is a lot cheaper. I've been swiming 4-5 in grubs and I also use them on the bottom like texas style. Another thing is they go throught the weeds etc very easy as the weight is molded to the hook and does hang up
