Shakespear big s hook size

Post by steved » Sun Sep 16 2018 13:39

Simple question that I should know the answer to. But I don't! What size are the treble hooks on a standard shakespear big s. I need to pick up a. Couple of replacements. Thanks

I've looked at one of mine and they look like #6 to me, Steve.

Not seen the newer versions, but the older model in the standard size had 2s I think...

Wondering whether I've downsized those hooks on mine myself at some point in that case.

Edit: Just looked out some packs of trebles to do a proper size comparison and the ones on my Big S (lure about 15 yrs old) are #4.

I'd trust your memory on lures over mine....most likely my Big S had #2s on and I switched them to #4s years ago and forgot :laughs:
