    Default Hooks

    It seems that there has been a lot of new small company's starting up lately selling end tackle / hooks. Pin point hooks etc. Has anyone tried any and are they any good, would rather give my hard earned to a uk indipendant than one of the monster companies if the quality is there. Cheers

    Yes I've tried some. But my option isn't yours so pointless. Bit like asking for advice on bait then considering using a wooden ball

    I use a few products from these guys now ^^^ fond them to be good quality and well priced but not tried there hooks.

    Gardner Mugga's, Nash Fangs or Atomic Choddas depending on rig I am using I tried others but keep going back to these tried and tested hooks.

    I found the mozzie hooks to exhibit poor sharpness out of the packet. Sharpen up OK though.

    I use deception hooks. They now do a few other bits but still mainly hooks. All hooks are hand checked for sharpness, apparently. Started with just their twg hooks but now all my hooks are deception.
