Very sharp hooks with a decent size wire compared to others. These do not bend, but I have broken one on a snag. I carry a couple of different sizes pre-tied, 10's are my go to size in most situations for bags and beads. I have even used the 12's and 14's with success on some large fish!
The best bead and bag hook there is for float fishing for salmon and trout. Not sure how this happens, but 90% or more of my fish are caught directly in the upper lip in the snout every time. I have asked Blood Run how this happens! Either way these hooks are deadly sharp and strong, use size 8 and 10 all day long for big steelhead in Michigan. Great product very please with my purchase.
