Ive used the Manta 6/0 singles for wrecking since they became available and found them as good as any Ive ever used.
My hook of choice if I was going today, which sadly Im not as it a lovely day 'out there'.

Perhaps yours are copies or the quality has deminished?

Don't think mine were copies,Mike, iirc I got them direct from Sakuma, had 3 of them snap on me, one when unhooking a fish, one when hooking up a deadbait and the other while playing a fish. I found owners to be gash aswell but others rate them highly. Maybe I've been unlucky with dodgey batches :shrug:

I moved over to the fox power points despite people saying fox stuff is s***e I've not had a problem with them and also the partridge x7's have been spot on.

I had a batch of partridge X7's snap on me. They were literally snapping unhooking fish, every time one got bent in ice or a snag they snapped when bending back. I suspected they might of been copies. They were however ultra reliable with the fish I was catching.

Not good to hear! Luckily I've not come across that with them (yet) !

Where did you get them from Jim and what size were they?

They were mostly size 6 and I bought them off ebay, It was some fly fishing shop in Ireland I think.
