Owner® Phantom Tube Hook™
Owner's Phantom Tube Hook features a unique weighted system designed specifically for rigging tube and hollow baits weedless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HamsSon Never fish a tube without these These tube hooks are the only way to fish tubes. The strike and hook-up rates are just as good as any other tube hooks, but the rate for snags and lost tubes is dramatically reduced. The phantom hooks can be a little pricey, and sometime hard to find the exact hook size and weight combination you need. Nevertheless, if you know how effective tubes can be on both small and largemouth bass, you will be glad you found these hooks. January 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by EliteSeriesDreams Great Tube Hook This hook by Owner is very easy to rig and it makes the bait super weedless in all types of cover. Since the weight is inside it gives the tube a different action and allows you to actually use a tube like a jerkbait if you want to. I have caught a lot of fish swimming a tube and jerking it along with this hook. It darts around in different directions and then when you let it fall its just as erratic. The hook up percentages are pretty good as well, but depending on the thickness of your tube you may have to bend the hook out slightly to make it perfect. March 27, 2012

A:no the weight goes in and the hook comes around the back like you would hook it weedless
A:Actually, the only thing INSIDE the tube when you are finished is the WEIGHT. Start with the point of the hook in the opening of the tube. Carefully thread the point up through the top of the tube. Pull the hook shank out until the eye comes out through the top of the tube, then STOP! Flip the hook down and tex-pose the hook through the body of the tube. The weight stays inside, and the hook is essentially snagproof.
A:Insert the hook through the open end of the tube, then pull the weight all the way to the nose of the tube. Next, bend the tube and place the hook through both layers of the tube. The hook should now be completely weedless.
A:You thread the hook through from the opening in the bottom of the tube and then out through the top, leaving the weight inside. You then rig the hook texas -style to make it weedless.

A:I've used these hooks before, and they work great, but the rigging instructions are strange at best. You put the hook through the back of the tube (where the legs are), bring the hook point out through the head of the tube, and follow with the rest of the hook., leaving only the weight inside the tube. A major disadvantage in this form of rigging is it can't be done if the hook is already tied on to your line. You also can't re-rig a new tube without cutting the hook off your line first.
