    Default Jag Hook Pens or similar

    How good are the Jag Pens or could you recommend an alternative.

    There pretty good.
    Mine has just run out and was wondering myself if normal marker pens (odour) etc really makes any difference what so ever?

    I spent the last couple of years avoiding sharpening my hooks because of the corrosion that resulted in doing so. Yet I can’t help but think I may be missing out on a trick (albeit the power of advertisement maybe).

    I’ve generally used a decent sharp hook and would sharpen them if them had been damaged and needed attention for most of my Angling I’m just on a pool that has a 12 hr rust factor.

    Most of the time i just rub my finger down the crease at side of my nose after sharpening, natural oil and it does the trick

    In that case you have friendly pH levels in your water buddy; I assure you nose oil does not work.
    The JAG pens are ok at best and will do the job for up to 24 hours.
    The best way by far is to rub a candle or crayon along the sharpened area then lick it very quickly with a lighter. Make sure they're un-scented obviously!

    I use Vaseline which lasts about 24hours before corrosion takes hold.
