All Gamakatsu hooks have one thing in common, they are very precisely manufactured and have a great quality. The hook steel is a little elastic whereby the hooks are impossible to bend up and also unbreakable.
All the wire sizes are perfectly adapted to the particular model and size. The point of the hooks are super sharp, hook eyes are clean and closed and the very fine barbs are easy to crush. The hook curves are flattened laterally for greater stability.
