Excellent hooks. They are super strong but are larger than the VMC's, so choose wisely.

Great Product!

These hooks are very sharp and super strong hooks. I highly recommend if you are chasing big fish.

Solid strong hooks. These are just a bit bigger than advertised, so if you're replacing a standard 3/0 VMC, you should look for 2/0 in this version of Mustad.

Very strong, inexpensive, sharp. Downside: they rust rather quickly.

These are as strong as the VMC 6x hooks that cost a lot, LOT, more. They seem to be less brittle as well. They are very sharp and I like them. The only downside is they rust quite a bit faster then the 4x VMCs, and much faster than the vanadium steel 6x VMCs. I have had to change my hooks on plugs I use 4-7 days a week up to 3 times this season already, and I have tried to start rinsing them if I can remember. If you don t rinse them, the hooks rust quickly- if you fish a lot (5+ days a week) and don t rinse they might only last a month or less. I wetsuit a lot though and all my plugs are under water often. It s the trade off for the inexpensive price and MUCH stronger hook you re getting vs. the VMC 4x.
