This strong, forged Mustad Bait Holder hook features a reversed hook point for improved hook hold. It permits the point to come in contact with the mouth of the fish, without turning. The long shank provides for bigger and longer worm baits. The beaked hook design offers great hookset and holding power throughout the fight. Depending on the size of the hook you can use it for targeting most flatfish species, Bream, Cod, Sea Bass or Rays. The “MTL-V1” point combines a more efficient point design with a new sharpening process to enhance the quality. The result is a sharper, sleek new point shape with penetration resistance 50% lower than standard Classic Hook points! Coated with Mustad's own Nickel finish, which are 4 times as rust resistant as traditional Nickel. Chemically sharpened high carbon steel. Mustad's Wire Technology and Nor-Tempering Process means that hooks are lighter and up to 30% stronger.
