Stuck a bunch of big fish down at Falcon this past weekend on the 7/0 flippin hook --bunch over five,two over seven and a nine lber. The bait keeper slid down the shaft all the way to the barb on the hookset and I lost a fish of a lifetime. If you buy this hook and give it a try you will catch more bass.
Dragging them out of hardwoods with 65 lb braid no problem with these big mama jama's. It was like I was fishing a hook that was barbless. Learned to punch with these hooks and with how sharp they are it really made up for my lack of experience with detecting a bite. I have even used it for catfish with my Skeet Reese flipping/ pitch rod. Comments: I have never had any lazer trokar bend on me especially a thick wire hook which i think all the trokar hooks are. From: Comments: had the first version of the flipping hooks with the shrink tubing bait keeper, and the new version with the plastic keeper.
This patent-pending process precisely grinds the three sides of the hookpoint using a high-speed, computerized grinder designed for surgical needles.
Lazer Trokar also determined the precise angle of the Low-Profile Barb using highly specific geometric calculations to provide easier penetration and the ultimate in holding power.
From: Comments: I think people get the first design of flippin hooks and the upgraded design mixed up. The very first model that came out were junk and the bait keepers slid down the hook or ripped off and after 1 or 2 fish the hook point rolled over. The price is a turn-off, BUT - when flipping - this hook does a better job than any I've used in my 30 years of fishing.
The new design though with the upgraded bait keeper and stronger hook is flawless. (This is the MOST important attribute of ANY flipping hook - more important than sharpness) Add to that the incredible point and you have the best flippin' hook on the market BAR NONE. Don't shy away if you flip at least 30% of the time you fish. From: Comments: I bought several packs and have mixed reviews.
Don't get me wrong they are the sharpest hook out there but there is a price to pay for that and that is a very thin point. Veiwing the commercials I thought these hooks were phony. After switching, I've had less missed hook sets and lost fish.
In addition, Trokar bolstered the wire diameter of the hook and used a unique tempering process, specifically tailored to bring out the maximum strength potential of the ultra-high carbon steel Q741 wire.
The result is a stouter hook that allows for aggressive hook-sets and intense fights, as well as, just the right amount of flex to resist breaking.
It's summer in Honduras." Humanitarian workers call the crush of useless, often incomprehensible contributions "the second disaster." In 2004, following the Indian Ocean tsunami, a beach in Indonesia was piled with used clothing.
