Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by OkieFF Outstanding Hooks What else can I say? It's Tiemco. High-quality metal. The barbs mash instead of breaking off which is a good test of quality for this style hook. Sure, Dai-rikis are much cheaper, but only because the materials are cheaper and inferior to Tiemco, Daiichi, etc. September 14, 2012

A:It depends on how long you like the body of your buggers to be. I almost always use the 5262 exclusively on un-beaded buggers. I use the 3xl 5263 when I add a bead head or just want a slightly longer body. Some people prefer longer bodies like a 4xl or even a Tiemco 300 6xl. Personally I find those too disproportionate for wooly buggers.

A:The 5262 is a 2X Long hook. If your bugger pattern calls for one, this will be just fine.
If your bugger pattern calls for a 3X Long hook, try the 5263, same shape, just longer shank. I keep both on hand for tying a variety of buggers.
