Over three years of development and the last two years spent thoroughly field testing prototype samples has culminated in the launch of a range of hooks that we believe sets a new standard in strength and point durability. New manufacturing techniques including both high temperature and cryogenic tempering have produced significantly stronger hooks with more durable, long life points. Cryogenic tempering is a process used to improve the molecular structure in steel which in turn reduces stress and improves strength and wear resistance. It is used in many disciplines with Formula 1 engine parts being a classic example.
This legendary hook pattern has been further refined and improved to make it the go-to hook for hinged stiff rig and chod rig presentations. Compared with its predecessor the Mk-2, the super sharp point is longer and finer and more inclined towards the shank for a stronger shape. The point is also in-line with the 13-degree out-turned eye so all the force is straight along the point section of the hook, rather than across the gape — making them incredibly strong. Heavy forging and PTFE Teflon coating plus no discernible increase in wire gauge but with superior strength makes this the perfect pop-up hook! Available in barbed sizes 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.
