Mustad Ultra Point Impact Hook
These are a lot quicker & easier to rig than the spiral coil type keeper hooks, but the trade off is the bait doesn't stay in place like the coil type either. I use these when I'm not going to be pulling through alot of vegetation, or fishing senko type baits through sparse grass...very easy to rig and very good hook-up %, too.
For frog baits, the coil type works better for me because if i'm fishing that bait I'm normally in the thick stuff!

Easy and convienient
Like their weighted hooks I also purchased some of these and used them throughout the past season. They are very good on senko style baits and Ika type baits. They are very easy to rig. The only thing that you would need to do to them is if you are fishing heavy cover or heavy submerged weed beds where you could hang up is to add a drop of super glue to the keeper. This will prevent the bait from sliding off the keeper. Other than this the hooks are very sharp and I have never lost a fish with these hooks. The only other thing that I would like to see is that larger packs become available.

I have used these hooks for 2 seasons along with the weighted hooks and are very impressed with them. They are good for any weightless presentation i.e. senkos, ikas, frogs. The only knock is the keeper. It does not hold well especially in heavier cover. I would suggest removing it and replacing it with the screw locks that they sell here. Otherwise an excellent rig.

Old Version Is Better
The sharpness of this hook is fantastic, however the change to the large "keeeper" is not a good one. Please bring back the old wire keeper with the 2 small prongs. The old version keeps the worm on the hook well without damaging it. This latest keeper really tears the worm up. You will have good hook ups with this product, but by your worms in bulk when using it.
