VMC 4X Strong O'Shaughnessy Treble Hooks - 9626
Love these hooks for all my saltwater lures. Or even if you're the kinda guy who OVER-Powers his hook sets like I do on Largemouth...they WONT bent out.
Only "Con": Is that they run slightly smaller in size than I preffer.
I usually find myself wishing that they came just a little WIDER( but not Longer) to match the "Bite Arch" of the hooks I'm replacing.
Other than that they are a 5 star for Strength, Sharpness and Rust resistence.

This warranty is fantastic, and is quite sturdy, has a design which along with its red color makes it look a fish in the blood as if he was hurt.

Problems with replacement hooks on hard baits for saltwater is if the hook is too heavy it kills the action of the lure and you stop getting bites. If the hook is too light it will bend out on bigger fish. Also the hook must be able to stand up to saltwater.
So far these hooks have proven to be strong and finish has done a good job of standing up to saltwater. They are sharp and although they are not as sharp as the Owner hooks they do seem to stay sharper longer and are definitely a lot stronger than the saltwater owner stinger hooks which seem to bend out like paper clips under the strain of a larger fish.. These hooks do a good job of holding the fish on the hook..
A word of caution when ordering though the sizes on these hooks tend run a bit smaller than standard so you may bump up a size when ordering.

VMC® 4X Strong O’Shaughnessy Treble Hooks – 9626
These have to be some of the best treble hooks that I have ever used. I like to salt water fish a lot. These hooks hold up the best I have found for salt water. They will last for weeks, without rusting. All you have to do is rinse them off at the end of the day; they just keep on fishing, stay sharp too. They also are some of the sharpest hook I have found, good hookups
