Anyone used these for bait fishing? Just found a couple of packs I bought a few years ago but never got round to using, they are wickedly sharp :veryevil:

I use gamakatsu g points for general coarse fishing, including carp and barbel. Love em!

Never tried the trebles but I expect they'd be good!

Ive used them in the sea on various species and found they penetrate and hold very well, never had one break or straighten.
I also have them on many of my Bass lures because they are very durable and retain their points, you just need to be careful when resharpening.
You can use them with confidence.

Thanks for the feedback i’ll give them a go, like I said they are wickedly sharp the only thing that’s been putting me off using them is the widegape style and the hookpoint pointing towards the shank so to speak as opposed to being parallel to the shank as in most bait hooks, but comparing them with a standard size 4 the gape of the hook is the same

I haven't tried those but definetly would, i picked up a box of these a couple of weeks ago an fkn hell are they sharp! Ive put them on a few lures and pike just have to breathe on them and they are hooked, all my other hooks seem dull in comparison, dont think you can go wrong with any gamakatsu hooks their jigheads are needle sharp too with a nice curved point

Mark,
I have used the Owners and Gamas but hells bells the prices over here are sky high compared to elsewhere Ive fished.

I recently bought some Diawa DT 4601 trebles for testing, visually they look identical and are made in Japan so maybe at the same factory (??)
Forged, G point, true aligned ring eye for lures, sized as normal hooks.
Results show they are the equal in strength (resistance to bending) and sharpness (depth of penetration) to Gamas and Owners?

Costwise the cheapest available work out at 50p per hook;

Thanks Mike J. Ive just received a batch of DT4601 trebles. First inspection, superb. Strong and extremely sharp with a cutting point. Sensible priced as well through the link you provided.

Gave my 4601s a real life test this week.
Day 1 - a jack fest, not a genuine test but they bent the rod.
Day 2 - 3 doubles to 14lb plus 2 branches and no misses (hooks and points like new under 10x eye glass)



The replacement Owners I ordered from Singey arrived yest and scooted through customs unscathed :thumbs:

Mike, whats your thoughts comparing the DT4601 against the Owners, are the Owners your preferred hook ? Will the Dt4601s replace them in the long term ?

Ive used Owners on sea species that pull a damn site harder than any pike and they have never let me down, ever.
If availability in the sizes required wasn't a consideration I would use them exclusively for all my piking. Ive bought some in pike sizes from Singapore to see if they are originals and if they slipped the German based EU grab-all Customs Centre ( :thumbs: to both)

The 4601's are new to me but after a thorough examination and real life testing Ive bought 120 in 4's and 6's, I just didn't post the link until my complete order had been delivered :grin:
Now Im experimenting with narrowing the ring eye to produce a more streamlined version for traces as they will be my pike hook here on in, the Owners will be for lures and abroad.

Hope that helps.
