Gamakatsu g point trebles

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
