    hope the cryogens have changed as I found the points went on the early batches really quickly. seemed to be a very soft metal.

    Out of the pack..? Sod that... Just get onto Jase H at sshooks and have him supply your hooks... To my mind anyone else is simply a copy, there is no way I can get anywhere close to that level...

    Atmoic for me over the last couple of years since getting back into my carp angling. I've only ever really used Drannan hooks in a lifetime of angling prior to the Atomics.

    I do like korda wide gapes but just love the finish and strength of the chodda's (the closest your ever get to a stiff rigger mk1) and the grabba. They are super strong, sharp enough from the packet and can be honed well by a novice with a file.

    Of topic - the sharpest hook I've ever found out of the packet are the drennan barbel hook and the range of sizes in unrivalled. Mega hook for bottom baits and surface fishing. Don't fish ziggs, if I did, these would be the ones.
    Maybe its because i'm a londoner
