G point hooks

Post by Bob Watson » Sun Oct 07 2018 19:42

I've just about exhausted my supply of gamakatsu g point 202 and 203 hooks.

Can anyone recommend a similar pattern as it seems these have been discontinued. Why I'll never know??

I assume you have confirmed they are discontinued with the manufacturers?
If not do so first.
I was told something similar by the distributors but the manufacturers told me the distributor had stopped ordering simply because there wasn't enough demand. With a little pleading I made a deal and had them shipped direct from the factory.
I also buy my size 11 Kamasans by the 1000 in packs of 25 which works out less than 50% of the shop price.
