Mustad UltraPoint Demon Perfect Offset 1X Circle Hook - Model 39940NP-BN
Owner vs. Mustad
Been using Owner hooks for a long time. I really like the Mutu Light Circle hooks. My only complaint is I gut-hook more fish than I like to. I have yet to gut-hook a fish using the Mustad hooks during my last three fishing trips. Very impressed so far. Hate to say it but I may be switching over.
One thing to keep in mind when ordering Mustad hooks. They are much smaller than Owner hooks. Nearly half the size.

Looks "small" compared to same size made by others but if you put them side by side the gap is the same per size. Gap is how hooks are sized (width across from point to shank) but have to admit when first received these,thought the size was wrong (as in small) like other reviewer. But this is a positive b/c much less visible to target species and much less damage to live bait. Live bait stays much more lively per amount of time b/c not dragging around lots of hook weight/length.

thin and strong
I have recently fished these hooks and found them very convenient,the wire is very thin with less damage to your live bait.The wire feels "springy"; it gives but doesn't deform under recommended load and they are reasonably strong.
One inconvenient fact is that they are much smaller in size than the manufacturer claims,I had to go a size larger.
