Owner Hooks - SSW with Cutting Point
These Hooks Are Vicious
I've used Eagle Claw, Gamakatsu, and who knows what other kind of hooks. Yes, they all work fine, but these Owner hooks are just insane. I'm scared of these hooks. Seriously. Haven't found a sharper hook, and can't imagine how a hook could BE any sharper than these. I use them for catfishing (from 3/0 to 5/0), and once you set the hook Mr. Whiskers is officially impaled. I've never had a problem removing the hook, but rest assured, if you're gonna use these, you're gonna need some good pliers to extract the hook. Not recommended for the faint of heart (also not recommended for the clumsy) but absolutely excellent product!

Caution very sharp
I tried other hooks and never really felt comfortable with them, then I bought Owner size 6 & 8 SSW with Cutting Point hooks for steelhead fishing. Well I will never go back to the "others" as if these hooks touch the mouth of a fish it digs-in and the fun begins, they are strong and sharp and all you really need. Caution! when the wind is blowing a bare hook around on your line these hooks will instantly stick to your waders, clothing or any bare skin.

I use the 1-2/0 sizes to make double-hook rigs for long strips of cut bait necessary in fluke fishing. These hooks have never let me down in the pursuit of fluke (summer flounder). They hook the fish well and don't pop out like many hooks do via headshakes by fluke at the boat. They consistently hook these sideways fish despite their tough jaw, skin, and narrow mouth. My go-to hook! Thanks again Owner!

Owner hooks are great, always sharp from the packet good value and good carbon ratio, will take the strain with a bend rather than a break. I've never landed a fish with a broken hook, but I've landed some on bent ones!
Fantastic value product, cheap in price, not in quality. Have landed many Wels Catfish from the Ebro over 150lbs with no problem.
